RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the fiscal year (FY) 2021 Active Component
(AC) Aviation Command Retention Bonus (ACRB), authorized in line with
references (a) and (b). The FY-21 AC Aviation Department Head Retention
Bonus (ADHRB) is addressed in reference (c).
2. The AC ACRB is designed to retain those officers with the capabilities
and command experience in our primary warfighting missions that are critical
for the future of our service. Our cadre of commander (CDR) commanding
officers (CO) lead our Naval Aviation Enterprise today, and they are the
major commanders and flag officers of tomorrow. Their skills and leadership
experience are essential to the success of the Navy. The FY-21 ACRB
incentivizes their continued service in follow-on assignments requiring
senior aviation leaders.
a. ACRB applicants must have screened on the FY-21 Aviation Command
Screen Board (ACSB) as CO of an eligible operational, operational training,
or special mission CDR command in order to apply. Eligible commands are
those for which the annual ACSB selects officers to serve as CO, excluding
second-in-grade/sequential/bonus/fleet replacement squadron
commands. Consult the FY-21 ACRB program information for specific
eligibility criteria and limitations. The application opportunity commences
with the release of this NAVADMIN and closes on 31 August 2021.
b. All FY-21 ACRB contracts will be worth $100,000. All eligible
officers will receive an initial payment of $34,000 and two anniversary
payments of $33,000. Participation in the FY-21 ACRB obligates contractees
to three years of obligated service to include full completion of a post
command commander (PCC) tour, which may be between 24 and 36 months depending
on assignment. ACRB obligation ends at the completion of 22 years of
commissioned service, the projected rotation date of the assigned PCC tour,
or three years from contract acceptance date, whichever is later. ACRB
applications for those currently under ADHRB obligations will be accepted,
held in abeyance and activated upon ADHRB contract expiration.
3. Additional ACRB Information
a. Officers accepting ACRB contracts are not precluded from
participating in the career intermission program (CIP). Officers interested
in both ACRB and CIP should contact the ACRB program manager and their
detailer for more information.
