ADVANCEMENT-TO-POSITION PROGRAM FOR RECRUITERS AND RECRUIT DIVISION
RMKS/1. Based upon positive Fleet feedback and the overwhelming success of
recent pilot programs, this NAVADMIN announces permanent adoption of the
Advancement-to-Position (A2P) program for Active Duty Sailors. This NAVADMIN
supersedes reference (a). The permanent A2P program will fill priority E-6
billets via an advancement incentive and is another step towards a modernized
personnel system and future detailing marketplace intended to improve Fleet
readiness and manning through better distribution of our talent. Sailors
selected for A2P billets will be advanced to E-6 and receive pay commensurate
with that pay grade upon reporting to their ultimate duty station after
successful completion of any required training enroute, unless advanced
sooner via another advancement program. Selected Sailors will receive
permanent change of station orders to report to an A2P billet in line with
current detailing business rules. Applicants will only be considered for the
specific A2P billets to which they have applied.
a. All applicants must be E-5s who are in their detailing window for
rotation and have taken the most recent E-6 Navy-wide advancement examination
(NWAE) for which results have been published. This requirement is not
waiverable. The program is open to Active Component Sailors only.
b. Applicants must be qualified to fill the specific billets to which
they apply. Sailors should contact their detailer if they have any questions
regarding their ability to be detailed to an A2P billet.
c. All Sailors may apply to sea duty A2P billets, regardless of
sea/shore flow considerations. Sailors on shore duty who are due to rotate
to sea duty will not be considered for shore duty A2P billets.
3. Billets. Billets identified for the A2P program will appear in the
*Advance to Position* category in Career Management System Interactive
Detailing (CMS-ID). Only a limited number of billets will be offered during
each detailing cycle and not all rates will have billets advertised each
cycle. To ensure billets available for this program are displayed, Sailors
should verify the *Advance to
Position* category is selected in the optional input portion of the CMS-ID
job search page. Sailors should submit applications to the billets in the
same manner as standard cycle applications.
4. Selection. Candidates will be selected on a competitive basis using the
a. Final Multiple Score (FMS) from the most recently published NWAE
cycle. FMS is the primary criteria for selection of eligible A2P applicants.
b. Command comments entered into CMS-ID. Commands with billets
advertised for fill via the A2P program are strongly encouraged to enter
comments into CMS-ID regarding the suitability of applicants during the
command comment phase of the detailing cycle.
c. Final selection of candidates will be based upon a combination of FMS
rank order and gaining command comments.
5. Frocking and Advancement. Sailors selected for A2P billets are eligible
for frocking upon successful completion of all enroute training or schools
required for the billet to which they were selected and will be advanced to
the pay grade of E-6 upon check-in at their ultimate duty station. No
further administrative action is required by the gaining command beyond the
normal gaining transaction. Sailors who fail to successfully complete
enroute training/schools required for the performance of an A2P billet will
not be advanced to E-6, regardless of whether or not they continue to execute
orders to the ultimate duty station.
