*** We are seeking motivated PSC's and PS1's to return to sea via SDIP and VSDP ***

Notes from the PS Detailing Team​

• Effective 4 March, 2013, the PS rating in pay grades E6 and E7 are eligible for Sea Duty Incentive Pay (SDIP) if extending beyond current Prescribed Sea Tour (PST), completing back-to-back sea tours, or curtailing a shore tour to return to   sea.  Refer to SDIP for additional information.
• While SDIP provides monetary incentive to return or remain at sea, the Voluntary Sea Duty Program (VSDP) provides Sailors with an opportunity to negotiate for a specific location if billets are available.  Refer to NAVADMINs 229/12, 205/12, and 043/12  for information regarding VSDP.
• There are significant changes to MNA and the order selection process.  It is  imperative that Sailors negotiating for orders remain flexible and prepared to relocate. 
• Refer to NAVADMIN 190/16 for information regarding PS sea/shore flow.
• If you are interested in sea or shore special programs, contact your detailer to discuss your options.  

**Command representatives should visit Placement Management (PERS-4013) for command specific assistance.**

Maintenance and Material Management (3-M) Coordinators at Sea (3MC)

Are there no in-rate billets available for you at sea?  Are you a highly motivated leader and desire increased responsibility and challenge?  Do you desire an assignment to a specific geographical area?  Consider assignment as a 3MC.  Contact your detailer to determine your eligibility.  Remember – your detailer must release you to the 3MC Detailer before he (the 3MC Detailer) can discuss specific duty station assignments with you.  Check out the 3MC webpage for additional information.
