FROM THE "PIT BOSS" AND LCDR DETAILER
**The billet list is also available on the eSUPPO app!**
Contact the Pit Boss: 901-874-4601 (DSN: 882)
Lieutenant Commander and below detailing is done in the Supply Corps detailing "pit" by four detailers. Each detailer is assigned the responsibility of a specific pay grade and billet type to detail, though we work closely together as each detail tends to affect what is being worked at another desk. Our goal is to match officers with the billets that best align with Supply Corps community milestones, balancing your professional needs and personal desires to the needs of the Navy.
HOW AND WHEN TO CONTACT YOUR DETAILER
Please feel free to call or e-mail your detailer anytime for general career guidance.
LCDRs, LCDR selects and post second operational (OP) tour officers will detail with the Pit Boss / LCDR detailer.
To discuss orders, I encourage you to make contact and submit billet preferences when you are within twelve (12) months of your PRD. Billets rolling in the next twelve (12) months are posted here (see above link) and are available on the eSUPPO app. The billet list is dynamic...billets are added as they become available and are removed once filled or become unfunded. Please submit billet preferences, using TAB 2 of the above billet list, for jobs in close proximity to your PRD (-1/+3 months) per MILPERSMAN (MPM) 1301-104.
LCDR assignments are socialized with all commands with a Supply Corps CAPT or CDR afloat (i.e., "gatekeeper"). This socialization affords the prospective gaining commands a courtesy review of an officer's Officer Record Brief (ORB) prior to orders being initiated. The ORB contains information similar to the Officer Data Card. A slate of all interested candidates will be submitted to the command roughly ten (10) months prior to the incumbent's PRD (unless the slate is requested sooner). Commands are generally given two (2) weeks to review all interested candidates and make a selection. Ideally, orders will be released approximately six (6) months prior to your estimated date of detachment.
- Operational Duty. All officers are candidates for operational duty unless rotating from an operational tour and will be screened accordingly. Operational duty includes commands that deploy or directly support deploying units. These tours are two (2) years in length per MPM 1301-110. All officers, not currently assigned operational duty, must include one (1) operational billet when submitting preferences.
- Overseas Duty. If you have not completed an overseas tour during your officer career, then you are a candidate for overseas duty and will be screened accordingly. Tour lengths vary by geographic location and accompanied status per the JTR Appendix Q. All officers, not currently assigned overseas, must include one (1) overseas billet when submitting preferences.
- CONUS Shore Duty. If you are rotating from a sea or an overseas tour, then you are a candidate for shore duty. Review the billet list and submit your preferences accordingly.
- Hot Fills. Officers who accept hot fill billets will be given top priority for follow on orders to either their geographic area, acquisition or joint coded billet of preference; however, gaining command must still screen and approve.
- Needs of the Navy. If not selected after slated to three (3) commands, or by 6 months prior to your PRD (which ever comes first), you may be assigned based on needs of the Navy.
I look forward to working with each of you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I can be reached at 901-874-4601, DSN 882-4601, or by email.
