O3-O5 NOSC Command Slating Business Rules
·         Screened officers who are PRD eligible shall submit a ranked NOSC preference sheet. 
·         Officers will typically be assigned to rank-equivalent NOSCs (e.g. CDRs will be typically be     
   assigned to CDR NOSCs before being considered for LCDR NOSCs).
·         CDRs are eligible for CDR and LCDR NOSCs and must submit ranked preferences for all 
        available CDR NOSCs and may submit separately ranked preferences for LCDR NOSCs. 

     o   For example, if there are 16 CDR NOSCs and 7 LCDR NOSCs 
            available, therefore CDRs must rank all 16 CDR NOSCs for consideration (1 through 16) 
            and may include separately ranked preferences for up to 7 LCDR NOSCs.
            Note: separate rankings to be provided using only 1 preference sheet.
·        LCDRs and LTs are eligible for commands one rank above their current pay grade.  LCDRs
  must provide two separately ranked preferences and must rank all available CDR and LCDR
  NOSCs; LTs must rank all LCDR NOSCs. 
  Note: separate rankings to be provided using only 1 preference sheet.

Submitting preferences does not preclude one from being slated to a command opportunity that was not on one's preference list.
     All are encouraged to provide amplifying remarks about rankings and to discuss submission
with one's detailer. 
·     Submit slate preferences using the preference sheets template provided on this website (upper right hand corner of site); submit via e-mail to the FTS Placement Officer - and your detailer.  Please DO NOT modify the formatting of this sheet. 
·      If an officer chooses to decline command after screening, a formal declination of command is required IAW MPM 1301-818. 
·     NOSC commands are for 36 months and PRDs will reflect this.  However, PRDs are subject to change based on the officer’s career progression and the needs of the Navy.   The projected fill dates are subject to change based on the incumbent Commanding Officer’s follow-on orders and career milestones.
 ·         All courses are mandatory and must be completed prior to assuming NOSC command.  Expect a
        1-3 month training track to accommodate the Naval Leadership and Ethics Course, NOSC CO
        Course, COAT, and the Naval Security Manager Course. 
Prerequisites must be completed
        for courses prior to reporting.
