RMKS/1. Purpose. Per reference (a), this NAVADMIN details the timeline and
plan for Navy's completion of Phase II of the Navy's transition from the
current system, the Department of the Navy Tasking, Records, and Consolidated
Knowledge Enterprise Repository (DON TRACKER), to the Enterprise Task
2.0 (ETMS2), commonly referred to as Task Management Tool (TMT). In
addition, this NAVADMIN provides leadership with a current state of training
and expounds on the role our senior leaders, typically O6 or GS-15 and above,
and principal officials, typically Flag Officers and Senior Executives, that
are designated to sign official documents on behalf of their command will
have in the full electronic routing of tasks in ETMS2 using the Senior Leader
Approval Process (SLAP).
2. Phase II commences immediately. All organizations shall complete the
following tasks by 1 April 2022:
a. Complete a comprehensive review of all NIPR and SIPR taskers in DON
TRACKER and close out any inactive taskers.
b. Complete training for all daily users and approving officials.

b. 291 users have completed Advanced Training. While optional, current
users that have attended have found it to be highly useful. Advanced

c. 44 of ~200 senior leaders and principal officials across the Navy
completed Senior Leadership Training.
4. Senior Leader Approval Process, also known as SLAP, is a process within
ETMS2 whereby senior leaders and principal officials who have authority to
sign executive-level correspondence on behalf of their command conduct
package approvals by electronically signing packages being routed to the
Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) and Office of the Chief of Naval Operations
(OPNAV). This process enhances task efficacy, reduces unnecessary waste, and
improves access to historical documents.
a. Senior leaders and principal officials are required to use the SLAP
within ETMS2 for all documents routed to SECNAV and OPNAV effective 1
b. Electronic routing via ETMS2 allows individual electronic approvals
through the "Route for Approval" action button.
c. When an approval route is created, individuals assigned to the route
receive a notification via email that a task or document is ready for
