MILLINGTON, Tenn.- The Navy Personnel Command (NPC) website, hosted at www.npc.navy.mil, contains a wealth of career information and is a valuable resource for 21st Century Sailors, officials said March 28.
“Our objective is to provide a one-stop-shop for all Navy-related personnel information in a centralized location,” said Lt. Jon Williams, functional website manager, NPC communications. “The NPC website provides information and guidance vital to Sailors and their families from boot camp to retirement and beyond.”
The website contains links to Navy guidance and policy, support and services, official programs, pay and benefits, career information, uniform regulations, Navy messages, and much more.
According to Williams, the NPC website is among the most-visited Navy websites, and more than 85 percent of the Navy’s Web content can only be found here.
“If you are looking for Perform-to-Serve requirements, information about selection boards, negotiating permanent change of station orders, or even proper placement of a rating badge on dress blues … it’s all here,” said Williams.
The website contains more than 2,500 pages, 15,000 documents and registers nearly one million visits per month.
The Reference Library section, which contains NAVADMINs, U.S. Navy forms and instructions and DoD directives and publications, receives the most active visits every month. In February, the NAVADMIN 2012 page received more than 100,000 views.
The Knowledge Base is another valuable feature on the NPC website and was created to supplement the NPC Customer Service Center (CSC). A Sailor can always call or email the CSC for information, but also has the ability to go to www.npc.navy.mil to research and answer questions online anytime.
The Knowledge Base can be accessed online from anywhere in the world. Sailors, retirees and their families can ask any question they want to about the Navy. The system uses keywords to generate a solution to their question.
Sailors can access the Knowledge Base by visiting the NPC website and clicking on the ‘Ask NPC a Question’ icon in the upper right corner of the page.
"Our ultimate goal is to provide our stakeholders with current and reliable web content, so they can make informed career and life decisions," said Williams.
