MASTER-AT-ARMS RATING INFORMATION
The first topic we would like to discuss is CMS-ID. It is your responsibility to know when your negotiation window starts and ends IAW NAVADMIN 226/12. Nine months before your PRD, you are in the order negotiation window. Once you enter your negotiation window, you are strongly encouraged to submit applications through CMS/ID to avoid receiving a driected "Needs of the Navy" assognment as outlined in NAVADMIN 226/12
When using CMS-ID, remember that billets are listed in priority which is established by Manning Control Authority. We are obligated to fill all billets advertised billets on CMS/ID. We recommend that you apply for as many billets as you can to increase your chances of selection. By waiting for that “specific job” to appear and making only one application, you could find yourself receiving orders to any of the advertised billets. When making requests for assignments, be realistic and ensure applications are in accordance with your sea/shore rotation outlined in NAVADMIN 361/12.
The MA rate is a CONUS/OCONUS for Sea/Shore rotation. CMS/ID does not differentiate between standard Sea/Shore rotations and CONUS/OCONUS rates. The following duty types are sea duty for the MA rate: Type 2/3/4/6. SWFLANT and SWFPAC are type 1 duty granted sea duty credit upon successful completion of the tour.
