COMMON ERRORS FOUND IN ADSEP PACKAGES WHICH DELAY FINAL DISPOSITION
- Supporting documentation missing from package.
- NRA submits ADSEP package to PERS 913 less than 30 days from the member’s receipt of ADSEP notification (MPM 1910-408).
- Letter of Transmittal being signed "By direction“, or not in the correct format. (MPM 1910-600).
- Other Than Honorable (OTH) separations conducted at NRA level without proper authority (BUPERS 1001.39F, Chapter 8).
- NRA conducting local ADSEP on members with MSO remaining (BUPERS 1001.39F, Chapter 8).
- MPM 1910-156 used for Unsatisfactory Drill Participation, use MPM 1910-158
- MPM 1910-124 used for personnel that fail to update the Family Care Plan Certificate, use MPM 1910-158 due to failing to respond to official correspondence. MPM 1910-124 should be used when a member has stated that they cannot execute the Family Care Plan Certificate.
- Incorrect or missing page 13 for Pattern of Misconduct ADSEPs (Must use the page 13 shown in MPM 1910-204).
- Missing Urinalysis Register or chain of custody on cases involving drug use.
- Missing Administrative Board Record of Proceedings (ROP) and findings/recommendations sheet when an admin board was held (MPM 1910-516).

- Sworn affidavit is not included with ADSEP package when a member does not sign NAVPERS 1910/31. The PS Form 3800 and/or 3811 included with the package does not mitigate the requirement for a prepared sworn affidavit. (MPM 1910-408 & MPM 1910-412)
