RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the convening of the Fall FY-19 Full-Time
Support (FTS) Officer Transfer and Redesignation Board on 30 October 2018.
Applications from qualified active component (AC) and ready reserve officers
will be considered by this board. In line with reference (a), this board
will also accept applications from FTS officers requesting redesignation into
another FTS officer community.
2. Complete application packages and waiver requests must be received no
later than 20 September 2018. No other correspondence will be accepted
within 10 calendar days before the convening date of the board.
a. All applicants must meet eligibility requirements outlined in
reference (a) and the Fall FY-19 FTS eligibility criteria document:
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) in and out
quotas, and aviation bonus (AvB)/aviation career continuation pay (ACCP)
(1) PRD. Applicants, including reservists on mobilization or recall
orders, must have a current PRD no later than 30 April 2020.
(2) MSR. Applicants currently under the MSR incurred upon
commissioning must have an MSR end date prior to 30 October 2019.
(3) AvB/ACCP. Aviation officers with obligated service as a result
of AvB/ACCP are eligible to apply if the officer will be within 12 months of
completing AvB/ACCP obligation or department head tour at the time the board
convenes. Redesignation immediately following a department head tour may
result in cancellation of AvB, which will be adjudicated by Aviation Officer
(4) Failure of Selection (FOS). AC officers in a 2xFOS status for
promotion to LCDR are eligible to apply for FTS regardless of MSR and
AvB/ACCP contract term, a waiver request is not required.
(5) YG. The tentative YG considerations are indicated below. These
are subject to change due to AC out quotas. The final approved YGs will be
posted on the FTS officer community management (OCM) webpage along with the
remainder of the application data in mid-August.

the degree is completed.

submitted, 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.
e. Members who do not meet all eligibility requirements in line with
reference (a) and the Fall FY-19 FTS eligibility criteria document posted on
the FTS redesignation board website may submit a waiver request with their
application. Waiver requests shall include an endorsement from the current
commanding officer of the applicant. These endorsements are separate from
any endorsements contained in the transfer/redesignation application of the
member and shall specifically address the eligibility criteria requiring a
waiver. Waiver request procedures and constraints are described in the
eligibility criteria document. An example of a waiver request can be found
on the FTS redesignation board website.
4. AC officers will incur a minimum 2 year FTS obligation if selected. As
outlined in reference (b), aviators selected for the Fleet Logistics Support
Squadron (VR) community will incur a 3 year FTS obligation. All SELRES

obligations will begin on the date a member becomes a permanent gain at their
first FTS command following satisfactory execution of permanent change of
station orders or completion of platform-specific training, whichever happens

redesignation board website.
