RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN supersedes reference (a) and provides an update to the
convening of the Spring Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Full- Time Support (FTS)
Officer Transfer and Redesignation Board. The Spring FY-20 FTS Officer
Transfer and Redesignation Board will convene on 19 May 2020. Applications
from qualified Active Component (AC) and Selected Reserve (SELRES) officers
will be considered by this board. In line with reference (b), this board
will also accept applications from FTS officers requesting redesignation into
another FTS officer community.
2. Application requirements and procedures can be found via MyNavy Portal at
https://www.mnp.navy.mil/group/career-planning and selecting the FTS
Redesignation Boards link. Complete applications with associated enclosures
must be received no later than (NLT) 2359 on 6 May 2020.
a. All applicants must meet eligibility requirements outlined in
reference (b) and the Spring FY-20 FTS eligibility criteria document found on
the redesignation website. Specific eligibility requirements are described
for each designator and aviation community. General eligibility criteria
include projected rotation date (PRD), minimum service requirement (MSR),
year group (YG) and aviation bonus (AvB) contracts.
(1) PRD. Applicants should have a PRD NLT 31 October 2021.
Waiver requests will need to be endorsed by your commanding officer
(CO) with your application.
(2) MSR. AC applicants should have completed their MSR prior to 31
October 2021. Waiver requests (no additional documentation required by the
applicant) will be considered on a case-by-case basis by your AC officer
community manager (OCM).
(3) AvB. Aviation officers with obligated service as a result of AvB
are eligible to apply if within 12 months of completing AvB obligation or
department head tour at the time the board convenes. Redesignation
immediately following a department head tour may result in the cancellation
of AvB, which will be adjudicated by Aviation Officer Assignments.
(4) Failure of Selection (FOS). AC officers in a 2xFOS status for
promotion to lieutenant commander are eligible to apply for FTS regardless of
MSR and AvB contract term; a waiver request is not required.
(5) YG. The approved eligible YGs are posted on the FTS OCM webpage
with the remainder of the application data.
b. All AC applications will be routed by the FTS OCM through the
applicable AC OCM for community release prior to applications being sent to
the board. Applicants who are not released by the AC OCM will not be
eligible for the board. AC officers with a submitted resignation or
lieutenants in a 2xFOS status are eligible to apply and do not require AC OCM
c. Limited duty officers are eligible for the FTS program and must
possess a four-year baccalaureate degree.
d. Service Members who do not meet all eligibility requirements in line
with reference (b) and the Spring FY-20 FTS eligibility criteria document
posted on the FTS redesignation board website will be pending waiver approval
by Head Reserve OCM (BUPERS-35) without any applicant action. If a PRD
waiver is required, the CO must acknowledge the request within the
4. Officers applying for multiple designators and/or communities will be
selected based on the needs of the Navy and not personal preference.
5. AC officers will incur a minimum 2-year FTS obligation if selected. In
line with references (c) and (d), aviators selected for the Fleet Logistics
Support Squadron (VR) community will incur a 3-year FTS obligation. All
SELRES officers will incur a 3-year FTS obligation regardless of community.
All FTS obligations will begin on the date a Service Member redesignates as
an FTS Officer unless otherwise stated in reference (d).
6. Upon approval of the board proceedings, the board results will be posted
on the FTS redesignation board website. Applicants can expect to see the
results posted within 30 days of board adjournment. Within 2 weeks of the
results posting, selectees will receive an acceptance package and will have
10 days upon receipt to accept or decline FTS transfer/redesignation.
