SPECIAL DUTY ASSIGNMENT PAY

SDAP is a monthly pay used to help obtain high quality personnel for designated Special Duty Assignments (SDAs) and sustain adequate manning levels.  SDAs involve demanding duties requiring extraordinary effort for satisfactory performance or an unusual degree of responsibility in the accomplishment of assigned duties.  

In order to qualify for SDAP, member must be assigned to and working in a valid billet via the Billet Based Distribution System.  The NEC/Billet must be authorized on the current SDAP Levels Chart.  The member must hold the NEC and be filling billet type in order to qualify for SDAP and be authorized by the Command Officer.  The CO's signature verifies the command is not exceeding Billet Authorized; member is working in a valid NEC/Billet type on the NAVADMIN, and holds the NEC (if paid based on NEC vice Billet Type).
