CULINARY SPECIALIST RATING INFORMATION
As our Projected Rotation Date nears, we are all looking for that next set of ‘dream’ orders. Many Sailors that we speak with ask us where to begin. NAVADMIN 249/09 provides that beginning - it gives us the information we need to successfully submit applications through CMS-ID and the proper timeframe to negotiate orders. Here are some very important highlights from NAVADMIN 249/09:
-The Sailor negotiation window will be nine to seven months prior to a sailor's PRD, providing a 3-month window to negotiate for orders before a Sailor is eligible for a directed "Needs of the Navy" assignment.
-Sailors E-1 to E-6 with less than 14 years of service must have PTS approval to submit CMS/ID applications and negotiate orders.
-CMS/ID does not allow a Sailor to negotiate orders without Perform To Serve (PTS) approval. Sailors who do not receive PTS approval until 6 months prior to their PRD will negotiate directly with their rating detailer. These Sailors will be able to negotiate orders for one month prior to entering the "Needs of the Navy" window. The PTS application at the 12 to 15 month point prior to EAOS or PRD is key to getting a timely PTS quota, and will preserve a full three-month negotiation window.
If you have any questions, utilize your chain of command, Command Career Counselor and never be afraid to contact your Detailer.
