RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN cancels reference (a) and provides updated
advance-to-position (A2P) guidance which will be employed beginning
with the 1 August 2022 MyNavy Assignment (MNA) Cycle. The A2P
Program now includes Active Component E-4 and E-5 Sailors in non-
detailing marketplace assignment policy (DMAP) ratings and allows
them to apply for select E-5 and E-6 jobs, respectively, when in
their detailing window. Guidance provided in this NAVADMIN does not
apply to DMAP ratings (Currently: CS, GSM, ABF, and ABH), who
remain eligible for DMAP incentives, including DMAP A2P, as
described in references (b) and (c).
2. Sailors selected for A2P opportunities under this NAVADMIN will
be permanently advanced and paid upon reporting to an A2P job at
their ultimate duty station, following successful completion of any
required en-route training. Sailors also maintain eligibility for
all other advancement programs that they would be eligible for even
after selection for A2P, and may advance sooner via any other
advancement program for which they are selected. Sailors selected
for an A2P assignment will receive permanent change of station (PCS)
orders, if required, in line with current detailing business rules.
3. A2P opportunities will be identified by the manning control
authority (MCA), in coordination with fleet readiness integrators
(FRI), based on existing prioritization processes. Selected A2P
opportunities will then be published within each MNA cycle.
Applicants will only be considered for the A2P jobs for which they
are qualified and have applied. Sailors may apply to sea duty A2P
jobs, regardless of sea or shore flow considerations. Sailors on
shore duty who are due to rotate to sea duty will not be considered
for shore duty jobs, but are encouraged to apply for sea duty A2P
4. Eligibility requirements are not waiverable. To be eligible,
a. Be an Active Component Sailor.
b. Be an E-4 or E-5.
c. Not be in a DMAP rating.
d. Be within the order negotiation window.
e. Have passed the most recent Navy wide advancement exam
(NWAE) for the paygrade to which they are applying.
f. Have successfully completed the professional military
knowledge eligibility exam requirement for the paygrade to which
they are applying.
g. Be eligible for advancement to the next higher paygrade in
line with reference (d).
h. Obligate service (OBLISERV) for the entirety of the
designated A2P tour length.
i. Be generally qualified to fill the job for which they apply,
with the exception of any en-route training requirements.
Prerequisites for any required en-route training must be met prior
to applying for an A2P job. Sailors may view any job requirements
(required schools in-route, Navy enlisted classifications (NEC),
etc.) on MNA by clicking on the NEC hyperlink and review
requirements and Navy training information. Sailors should contact
their rating detailer if they have any questions regarding
qualifications needed to fill a specific A2P job.
5. Jobs identified for the A2P Program will appear in the *Advance
to Position* category in MNA (note that this is different than the
DMAP marketplace). Depending on your rating and paygrade, A2P
opportunities may not be advertised every MNA cycle as the MCA and
FRIs prioritize and fill different Fleet priorities each cycle. To
ensure advertised jobs for this program are displayed, Sailors
should verify the *Advance to Position* category is selected in the
optional input portion of the MNA job search page. Sailors should
submit applications to the jobs in the same manner as standard cycle
6. All A2P applicants will be graded utilizing a Sailor scoring
criteria, a sample of which is available on the detailing
marketplace tab of MyNavy HR website. Candidates who have passed,
but not advanced via the most recent NWAE, and are eligible for
advancement to the next higher paygrade will be selected on a
competitive basis using the following considerations:
a. Billet requirements for the job applied to, including rate,
paygrade, and NEC (if applicable).
b. Sailor preference, application ranking, receiving command
comments, and final multiple score.
c. Sailors having or possessing the ability to obtain any
required critical skills for the job.
d. Needs of the Navy (availability of PCS funds, etc.).
7. After obligating service and completing any required screening,
Sailors selected for A2P jobs should be frocked by losing command
prior to transfer. Gaining commands will submit PCS orders and key
supporting documentation to transaction service center or joint base
personnel support detachment to allow Sailors to be permanently
advanced upon reporting. The effective date of paygrade will be the
report date to the ultimate duty station. The completion of the PCS
orders execution and reporting onboard will serve as the authority
to advance. Sailors who fail to successfully complete en-route
training or schools required for the performance of an A2P job will
not be advanced, regardless of whether or not they continue to
execute orders to the ultimate duty station.
