Navy Releases FY-12 Continuation Board Results to Commanders 

From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs

MILLINGTON, Tenn. – Results from the Fiscal Year 2012 performance-based board for continuation of senior enlisted (FY-12 SECB) were posted in Bupers Online (BOL) for command access Jan. 31.

In accordance with NAVADMIN 194/11, Sailors not selected for retention will be notified by their commanding officer or officer-in-charge within seven calendar days of commander notification.  After this seven day notification period, a NAVADMIN will be released announcing that results are available in BOL for senior enlisted to check their individual status.

The board, which convened Dec. 5, 2011, was a performance-driven review of approximately 7,700 active, Full Time Support and Reserve master chiefs, senior chiefs and chiefs with more than 19 years of service and three years' time-in-grade.  The board is a force management measure, like Perform to Serve, allowing the Navy to retain the best Sailors while meeting current and future planned end-strength controls.

Senior enlisted considered by the board will be classified in one of three categories in BOL.
S - Selected for continuation.
N- Not selected for continuation.
H- Not selected for continuation – In a hold status.

Commanders, commanding officers and officers-in-charge or their designated representative are required to contact the Navy Personnel Command customer service center at 1-866-U-ASK-NPC or via e-mail at to verify that notification of senior enlisted not selected for continuation is complete. 

Commands shall immediately contact Navy Personnel Command (NPC) if a senior enlisted not selected for continuation has transferred or is serving on an individual augmentation manpower management (IAMM), global support assignment (GSA), overseas contingency operations support assignment (OSA), or mobilization.

Detaching commands are responsible for notification in cases where the senior enlisted not selected for continuation is in transit between duty stations. The assigned Navy element commander shall ensure notification and support is provided when the senior enlisted not selected for continuation is assigned to a joint or non-Navy command.

Sailors not selected for continuation must transfer to the fleet reserve or retire by Sept. 30, 2012 and will have access to the Navy’s Transition Assistance Management Program. Transition Assistance information can be found at
