AMPN/REF A IS OPNAVINST 3006.1, PERSONNEL ACCOUNTABILITY IN CONJUNCTION WITH
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the semi-annual update/verification of
personal information in the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System
(NFAAS) by all Navy military and civilian personnel. NFAAS is the system
utilized by the Navy to account for personnel and their families during
widespread natural or manmade disasters. Accurate contact information of
personnel and family members is required to facilitate a quick and accurate
muster of personnel in affected areas. Per reference (a), updates of
personal information will be verified as current by 1 April and 1 October
2. Applicability. This message applies to all Navy personnel, uniformed
(active and reserve) and civilian and Outside Continental United States
(OCONUS) contractors per the following:
a. It is required for all military personnel to update and verify
contact information and all categories of dependents.
b. It is mandatory for non-bargaining unit civilian employees to update
their contact information. However, providing dependents information is
voluntary. Failure to provide dependent information may exclude them from
receiving potential benefits, if applicable.
c. At this time, bargaining unit civilian employees are encouraged to
provide their contact and dependent information on a voluntary basis, until
union notification and subsequent impact and implementation bargaining takes
place (when applicable).
3. Echelon II commanders and all regional commanders will ensure widest
dissemination to all subordinate and tenant commands and detachments for
action as required. All commanding officers (CO)/ officers-in-charge (OIC)
will ensure timely and accurate updates of Navy member and family member
contact information as stated above.
COs/OICs will also contact the human resources office to request applicable
union notifications. This requirement also includes OCONUS contractors (must
enter associated unit identification code (UIC)). A report of those commands
not in compliance with this NAVADMIN will be provided to the Office of the
Chief of Naval Operations for review. All personnel may logon to NFAAS and
update/verify contact information as required.
4. Additionally, each command will review their policies requiring personnel
to update their NFAAS data during the check-in and check-out process as
standard practice. Military members/dependents must also update NFAAS in any
instance in which they make a permanent change of address. Civilian non-
bargaining unit employees must update their contact information and are
encouraged to update their dependents information on a voluntary basis
whenever there is a change. Civilian bargaining unit employees are
encouraged to update their information whenever there is a change.
5. For military and civilian members to update contact data, utilize the
NFAAS site at https://navyfamily.navy.mil. Log in and update member
information under the "my info" tab "contact information" section. Update
family member information under the "my info" tab "family member info"
section. Edit member and family member information as necessary and verify
as current. All family members enrolled in the exceptional family member
program must be identified as such.
6. The NFAAS site can also be accessed from any android, Iphone or
blackberry mobile device*s web browser. Although the application uses the
same URL address as the NFAAS website, when accessed via mobile device, the
site will be optimized to allow easy viewing and navigation. The following
limited capabilities are available via the mobile web application:
a. Update sponsor contact information
b. Enter evacuation location information
c. Allow users to muster
d. Allow users to complete a needs assessment
7. Commands can validate contact information has been verified by using the
personnel tab in NFAAS and using the "export to excel"
option. Column N contains the date the contact information was last updated.
8. A tool is available in NFAAS to allow commands to "pull"
personnel into their UIC. This prevents information from incorrectly
remaining in a previous UIC and not being accounted for in the current
command within NFAAS.
9. Points of contact:
a. NFAAS help desk/SPAWAR at (866) 946-9183 or via e-mail at
b. Navy Personnel Command emergency coordination center at
(877) 414-5358 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
c. NFAAS program manager at (202) 433-9360 or via e-mail at
10. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or canceled,
whichever occurs first.
