MILPERSMAN 1300-300 The Navy’s Suitability Screening Program is used to determine the suitability
of Sailors and their family members for overseas or remote assignments.

their families transferring from overseas to overseas.  For further information see MILPERSMAN 1300-304.

The responsibility for determining suitability rests with the CO of the transferring command.  The CO 
must ascertain whether the service member or family member(s) possess any performance, disciplinary, financial, psychological, medical, dental or educational attributes which would preclude them from
conducting themselves as worthy representatives of the United States in a foreign country.

CO's of the transferring command are responsible for providing a suitability determination for the service member to Navy Personnel Command and the gaining command within 30 calendar days.
