Carefully review personnel documents and information routed between the PSD/CSD or NOSC and supported Sailors to ensure all forms are properly completed, all required documentation and attachments are provided, and all information appears to be sufficient to resolve the transaction in a timely manner.

Attend all scheduled CPPA Training provided by the PSD/CSD or NOSC. If unable to attend, arrange to receive information provided via alternate means.

In every action, always protect the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of command personnel. If at any time PII is compromised, report the spillage as soon as it is discovered.

Use the left navigation bar to locate information and resources supporting specific CPPA tasks. Use Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to perform tasks.
