(OSA) PROCESS WILL REPLACE THE GSA DETAILING PROCESS FOR ENLISTED  SAILORS.  THIS NAVADMIN SUPERCEDES REFS B AND C.

2.  OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATIONS SUPPORT ASSIGNMENT (OSA) PROCESS  OVERVIEW.

    A.  PRIOR TO ENTERING INTO NEGOTIATIONS WITH RATING DETAILER,  SAILORS DESIRING AN INDIVIDUAL AUGMENTATION ASSIGNMENT SHOULD SELECT THE "OSA PREFERENCE"

PAGE 04 RUEOMFA1953 UNCLAS

 OPTION IN THE

SPECIAL PROGRAMS SECTION OF THEIR DUTY PREFERENCE PAGE IN CMS/ID,  NINE TO TWELVE MONTHS PRIOR TO THEIR CURRENT PROJECTED ROTATION DATE (PRD).  IT IS  IMPERATIVE THAT SAILORS UPDATE THEIR EMAIL AND PHONE CONTACT INFORMATION IN CMS/ID PRIOR TO  SELECTING THE OSA PREFERENCE OPTION TO FACILITATE TIMELY CONTACT AND NEGOTIATIONS PRIOR TO THE  MEMBER ENTERING INTO THEIR NORMAL DETAILING WINDOW.  PERFORM TO SERVE (PTS) SCREENING AND  APPROVAL IS A PRE-REQUISITE FOR OSA SELECTION, UNLESS THE CURRENT EXPIRATION OF ACTIVE OBLIGATED  SERVICE (EAOS)/SOFT EXPIRATION OF ACTIVE OBLIGATED SERVICE (SEAOS) DATE IS SET BEYOND THE  END OF OSA ESTIMATED RETURN DATE PLUS THREE MONTHS.  IN GENERAL, THIS MEANS THAT UNLESS  YOUR EAOS/SEAOS IS AT LEAST 15-16 MONTHS BEYOND YOUR CURRENT PRD MONTH (FOR 12-MONTH  ASSIGNMENTS), YOU WILL NEED PTS APPROVAL TO ESTABLISH ELIGIBILITY FOR AN OSA ASSIGNMENT.

PAGE 05 RUEOMFA1953 UNCLAS

    B.  SAILORS WILL BE CONTACTED BY NAVPERSCOM (NPC) OSA DETAILING  CELL (PERS 4013GS) AFTER THE SAILOR HAS SELECTED THE OSA PREFERENCE OPTION IN THEIR  CMS/ID SPECIAL DUTY PREFERENCE PAGE.

    C.  SAILORS AND THE PERS OSA DETAILING CELL WILL WORK TOGETHER TO  FIND AN OSA BILLET FOR WHICH THE SAILOR IS A GOOD FIT.  SAILORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO HAVE  AN IDEA OF THE THEATER/COUNTRY, LENGTH OF TOUR, AND TYPE OF BILLET THEY PREFER.  IF  A BILLET IS NOT AGREED UPON, OR NO BILLET IS AVAILABLE, THE SAILOR WILL COMMENCE NORMAL  RATING DETAILER NEGOTIATIONS AND CMS/ID APPLICATIONS ONCE IN THEIR NINE MONTH PRD WINDOW.

    D.  OSA NOMINATIONS WILL BE SUBMITTED TO UNITED STATES FLEET  FORCES (USFF) FOR FINAL APPROVAL.  ONCE APPROVED, THE PERS OSA DETAILING CELL AND THE SAILOR,  ALONG WITH THE RESPECTIVE GEOGRAPHIC BUDGET SUBMITTING OFFICE (BSO)/TYPE COMMANDER  (TYCOM), WILL BE NOTIFIED PAGE 06 RUEOMFA1953 UNCLAS OF SELECTION.  THE SELECTED SAILOR WILL BE CONSIDERED "UNDER ORDERS"

 FOR PCS DETAILING

PURPOSES UNTIL THEIR PRD IS ADJUSTED AND THEY ROLL INTO THEIR NEW  DETAILING WINDOW.

    E.  TEMPORARY ADDITIONAL DUTY (TEMADD) ORDERS SHALL BE WRITTEN BY  NPC WITHIN TWO WEEKS OF THE SAILOR'S SUCCESSFUL ACCEPTANCE BY USFF AS AN OSA CANDIDATE.

 INTERMEDIATE TEMPORARY DUTY

(ITDY) ORDERS WILL BE ISSUED ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS.

    F.  TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO FIRST I-STOP (NMPS REPORT DATE), AND UPON  SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF ALL IA/OSA PRE-SCREENINGS, PERS-40 WILL ADJUST THE SAILOR'S PRD AND  APPLY AN OSA DISTRIBUTABLE NAVY ENLISTED CLASSIFICATION (DNEC) CODE.  THE NEW PRD  WILL BE 60 DAYS AFTER THE ESTIMATED RETURN FROM THE OSA TOUR.  THE OSA DNEC WILL MASK THE  SAILOR FROM THEIR PARENT COMMAND'S MANNING AND THE OSA SAILOR WILL NOT COUNT AGAINST THE  COMMAND FOR MANNING PURPOSES.

    G.  FOLLOW-ON PCS ORDERS.  WHEN OSA SAILORS ARE WITHIN NINE PAGE 07 RUEOMFA1953 UNCLAS  MONTHS OF THEIR NEW PRD, THEY WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO NEGOTIATE ORDERS WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE RATING  DETAILER.

    H.  UPON COMPLETION OF THE OSA DEPLOYMENT, SAILORS WILL RETURN TO  THEIR EXISTING (PRE-OSA) PARENT COMMAND FOR APPROXIMATELY 60 DAYS PRIOR TO DEPARTING FOR THEIR  NEXT PCS ASSIGNMENT.  THE 60 DAYS AT THE PARENT COMMAND SHALL BE RESERVED FOR REINTEGRATION,  POST-DEPLOYMENT SCREENINGS, LEAVE, AND PCS MOVE PREPARATION (HHG MOVE SETUP, ADMINISTRATIVE  PROCESSES, ETC.).  SAILORS SHALL THEN EXECUTE THEIR NEW PCS ORDERS, AS WRITTEN.

PAGE 02 RUEOMFA1954 UNCLAS

3.  OSA ADMINISTRATION AND PREREQUISITES.

    A.  OSA CANDIDATE BUSINESS RULES.

        (1) OSA ELIGIBILITY.  SAILORS WHO VOLUNTEER FOR AN IA  ASSIGNMENT AND ARE WITHIN NINE AND TWELVE MONTHS OF PRD.  SAILORS WITHIN NINE MONTHS OF THEIR PRD  ALSO MAY APPLY FOR OSA ORDERS BY DIRECTLY CONTACTING THEIR RATING DETAILER WHO WILL NOMINATE  THEM, PROVIDED THEIR RATING DETAILER CONCURS WITH THE ASSIGNMENT, TO THE PERS OSA  DETAILING CELL FOR AN OSA ASSIGNMENT.

        (2) SAILORS WHO PREVIOUSLY COMPLETED AN IA ASSIGNMENT MAY  VOLUNTEER FOR AN OSA ASSIGNMENT.

        (3) SAILORS WHO ARE TRANSFERRING FROM A NAVY "A" OR "C"

 SCHOOL ASSIGNMENT AND HAVE NOT

YET COMPLETED THEIR FIRST PCS TOUR ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR AN OSA  ASSIGNMENT.

        (4) RANK.  OSA CANDIDATES MUST BE ONE UP/ONE DOWN FROM THE  STATED REQUIREMENT, UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED IN THE REQUIREMENT.  OSA CANDIDATES MUST BE E-3 OR  ABOVE AT THE TIME OF PAGE 03 RUEOMFA1954 UNCLAS ADMINISTRATIVE SCREENING TO BE ACCEPTED FOR OSA ASSIGNMENTS WITH THE  FOLLOWING EXCEPTIONS:  (1) OSA CANDIDATES MUST BE E-4 OR ABOVE FOR ASSIGNMENT TO DETAINEE  OPERATIONS MISSIONS; AND (2) HOSPITAL APPRENTICE (HA/E-2) SAILORS MAY SERVE IN HEALTH SERVICE  AUGMENTATION PROGRAM (HSAP) BILLETS DUE TO THEIR SPECIALIZED TRAINING AND MEDICAL SKILLS.

 ADDITIONAL EXCEPTIONS MAY BE

EVALUATED ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS.

       (5) LOW SUPPLY/HIGH DEMAND (LS/HD).  PERSONNEL LS/HD SKILL  SETS MAY NOT BE USED TO FILL A REQUIREMENT OUTSIDE THEIR SKILL SET AND SHALL NOT BE ASSIGNED TO AN  "ANY RATING OR ANY PETTY OFFICER" OSA BILLET ASSIGNMENT.  USFF N1 WILL MANAGE AND TASK LS/HD  COMMUNITIES.

       (6) SECURITY CLEARANCE.  AT THE TIME OF THE OSA REQUEST,  CANDIDATES MUST POSSESS THE REQUIRED SECURITY CLEARANCE, OR HAVE INTERIM CLEARANCE GRANTED AND  THE APPROPRIATE INVESTIGATION INITIATED.  CLEARANCE STATUS, INCLUDING INTERIM CLEARANCE STATUS, PAGE 04 RUEOMFA1954 UNCLAS  MUST BE REFLECTED IN JPAS.

       (7) NEC.  IF A NEC IS SPECIFICALLY STATED IN THE REQUIREMENT,  THE OSA CANDIDATE MUST CURRENTLY HOLD THE APPROPRIATE NEC.  USFF N1 HOLDS WAIVER AUTHORITY.

       (8) PRD.  THE START OF THE OSA ORDERS MUST CONFORM TO CURRENT  DETAILING RULES (I.E., PRD MUST BE WITHIN THREE (3) MONTHS OF START OF OSA).

       (9) EAOS.

           (A) SAILORS MUST HAVE SUFFICIENT TIME REMAINING ON CURRENT  ENLISTMENT TO COMPLETE THE OSA TOUR.  IF A SAILOR HAS BEEN SELECTED FOR AN OSA, BUT DOES NOT  HAVE SUFFICIENT EAOS TIME TO COMPLETE THE OSA DEPLOYMENT, THEY ARE REQUIRED TO BE PTS  SCREENED AND APPROVED, AS APPROPRIATE.  THE SAILOR, THROUGH THE PARENT COMMAND AND LOCAL PSD,  MUST COMPLETE THE OBLISERV REQUIREMENT OF A MINIMUM OF 90 DAYS (MAXIMUM OF 120 DAYS FOR  EXTENSIONS OF ENLISTMENT) AFTER THE ESTIMATED RETURN FROM THE OSA TOUR.  THIS SHOULD BE COMPLETED  WITHIN 30 DAYS OF TEMADD/ITDY PAGE 05 RUEOMFA1954 UNCLAS ORDERS DTG AND IS INCLUDED AS PART OF THE EXPEDITIONARY SCREENING  CHECKLIST.

           (B) ALTHOUGH REENLISTMENT IS DESIRED, IF THE SAILOR IS  ELIGIBLE IN ALL RESPECTS, RECEIPT OF TEMADD/ITDY ORDERS SERVES AS SUFFICIENT DOCUMENTATION FOR  OSA ASSIGNMENT AND ALLOWS OVERMANNED RATING ZONES TO EXTEND IN ORDER TO MEET OBLISERV WITHOUT

 PERS-811 AUTHORIZATION.

THIS MESSAGE ALSO PROVIDES EARLY REENLISTMENT WINDOW FOR NON-SRB  SAILORS TO MEET OBLISERV.  ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS, AFTER RECEIPT OF TEMADD/ITDY ORDERS, PERS-811  WILL ENTERTAIN EXCEPTIONS TO EXTENSION POLICIES FOR RATINGS/NECS LISTED IN THE LATEST SRB NAVADMIN  THAT ARE OUTSIDE OF THE SRB REENLISTMENT WINDOW.

        (12) STATUS-OF-FORCES AGREEMENT (SOFA).

             (A) A SOFA WITH A FOREIGN NATION PROTECTS SAILORS AND  THEIR DEPENDENTS WHILE STATIONED OCONUS.  PROVIDED THAT THE OVERSEAS COMMANDER AGREES TO HOST  DEPENDENTS WHILE THE SAILOR IS ON IA, SOFA POLICIES GENERALLY SHOULD NOT REQUIRE FAMILIES TO LEAVE THE  FOREIGN COUNTRY IN WHICH THEY ARE CURRENTLY SERVING.

             (B) IF A SAILOR ASSIGNED TO AN OVERSEAS COMMAND WOULD  LIKE TO VOLUNTEER FOR OSA, PRIOR TO SELECTING AN OSA ON THEIR PREFERENCE PAGE ON CMS/ID, THEY  MUST FIRST INQUIRE, VIA THEIR CURRENT CHAIN-OF-COMMAND, IF THAT PARTICULAR COMMAND/COMMANDER CAN  HOST THE DEPENDENTS WHILE THE MEMBER IS TAD ON AN OSA ASSIGNMENT, IN ACCORDANCE WITH LOCAL SOFA  RULES.  IF THE COMMAND CANNOT PAGE 02 RUEOMFA1955 UNCLAS HOST THE DEPENDENTS DUE TO SOFA, THE SAILOR CAN STILL APPLY WITH THE  UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY MUST QUALIFY FOR A DESIGNATED-PLACE MOVE VIA ITDY ORDERS FOR THEIR  DEPENDENTS AND MUST INFORM THE PERS OSA DETAILING CELL OF THE SITUATION AND THE FAMILY'S INTENTIONS  DURING THE NEGOTIATION PHASE.

            (C) IF A SAILOR IS REQUIRED TO MOVE HIS/HER FAMILY BACK  TO A CONUS LOCATION DURING THE OSA DEPLOYMENT, OR IF THE PARTICULAR HOST NATION SOFA RULES ARE SO  RESTRICTIVE AS TO NOT ALLOW A MEMBER TO KEEP DEPENDENTS IN THE PRESENT LOCATION WHILE TAD ON AN OSA  DEPLOYMENT, THEN SAILORS MAY QUALIFY FOR A DESIGNATED-PLACE MOVE VIA ITDY ORDERS.  CONTACT PERS 4G  FOR MORE INFORMATION USING THE IAHHG@NAVY.MIL EMAIL ADDRESS FOR SPECIFIC QUESTIONS.

            (D) RETURN OF DEPENDENTS FROM A DESIGNATED-PLACE MOVE  BACK TO THE OCONUS PDS IS LIMITED TO CASES WHERE THE MEMBER HAS 12 MONTHS OR MORE REMAINING AT THE OLD  PDS AFTER THE ARRIVAL OF DEPENDENTS OR HOUSEHOLD GOODS, WHICHEVER IS LATER, AND DOES NOT HAVE PAGE 03 RUEOMFA1955 UNCLAS  FOLLOW ON PCS ORDERS.

        (13) HIGH YEAR TENURE (HYT).

             (A) SAILORS DETERMINED TO BE HYT MAY VOLUNTEER FOR OSA  ORDERS PROVIDED THE ESTIMATED RETURN FROM DEPLOYMENT ALLOWS FOR A MINIMUM OF FOUR MONTHS TRANSITION  BETWEEN RETURN AND THE MANDATORY SEPARATION DATE.

             (B) REQUESTS TO WAIVE MINIMUM TRANSITION TIME WILL BE  EVALUATED ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS.

             (C) SAILORS ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF OSA ORDERS, WHO ARE  SUBSEQUENTLY DEEMED TO BE HYT, WILL BE EVALUATED ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS BY USFF AND NPC.

        (14) RETIREMENT.
