IA Sailor Advocacy

Command IA Coordinator (CIAC)

The Parent Command’s CIAC advocates for IA Sailors for issues that may arise during NMPS and follow-on training. The resolution of family, personal, health, or professional problems should be coordinated with the local Chain of Command or designated resources. For RC Sailors, the CIAC is assigned from the Sailor’s NOSC.

Expeditionary Combat Readiness Center (ECRC)

The ECRC directly assists IAs to get properly uniformed and equipped at NMPS and follow-on training. The ECRC has a Liason Officer (LNO) at most Army training sites to coordinate assistance to Navy trainees. NIACT provides Navy administrative support while IA Sailors undergo Army training. The ECRC lines include 757-462-4744, ext. 119 (helpdesk), ext. 215 (family support), and 877-364-4302 (24 hr. toll-free hotline). Visit the ECRC webpage for more information or email the ECRC at

Supported Command

During the BOG Phase, the IA Sailor's chain-of-command generally transitions primarily to the command that the IA Sailor is assigned to. Communication with the parent command or ECRC as appropriate if there are any questions issues/concerns that arise during the transition.     

US Fleet Forces (USFF)

USFF is the executive agent responsible for the overall execution of the Navy IA program. As always, issues encountered by IAs should be worked at the lowest level possible: first with the Parent Command / CIAC, then with the ECRC or Supported Command (as applicable), and finally with USFF. The USFF hotline is 757-836-2327 and the USFF email account is
