Deployment Screening for IA Sailors
The Expeditionary Screening Checklist (ESC)
After orders are issued IA Sailors must be promptly screened to ensure suitability for deployment. Screening consists mainly of medical readiness checks as well as some administrative checks. Screening must be completed and reported to USFF no later than 30 days after orders are issued to the member. In addition to screening, there is additional preparation work due before the member’s first I-stop report date.
It is the responsibility of the Parent Command to ensure that the IA Sailor screens and prepares for mobilization correctly. For AC Sailors, the Command Individual Augmentee Coordinator (CIAC) will oversee this process. For most RC Sailors, the NOSC Mobilization Officer will oversee this process, and will also assign a CIAC from the NOSC to the IA Sailor. Note that some reserve units will assign their own CIAC to members of their unit, but this is an informal assignment. For RC Sailors, the CIAC assigned by the NOSC is the official CIAC. Finally., IA Sailors should expect to be contacted by an Individual Deployment Support Specialist (IDSS) representative during this period.
