RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN updates reference (a) and announces the policy and
guidance for calendar year (CY) 2020 Season Two Meritorious Advancement
Program (MAP) for Active and Full-Time Support Sailors. As announced in
reference (a), due to the successful implementation of the MAP automation in
Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) and Fleet feedback, the
time allocated for commands to approve MAP candidates during CY-20 MAP Season
Two is reduced from 60 to 45 days, beginning from 1 September through 15
2. MAP will account for approximately 20-percent of total advancements in
CY-20 with roughly half of the available quotas allocated for each season.
All unused quotas will be factored into the Navy-wide advancement exam (NWAE)
cycle. We are maintaining the two-season framework that aligns the MAP with
the NWAE to emphasize the intent of MAP in selecting and rewarding the right
3. Commands are required to submit their MAP advancement through NSIPS.
Commands without access to NSIPS should submit their meritorious
certification letters (MCL) via e-mail to their immediate superior in command
(ISIC) as outlined in reference (a).
The system will use authoritative data to determine eligibility.
However, commands are still required to locally validate that MAP candidates
have successfully completed the professional military knowledge eligibility
examination (PMK-EE) requirement prior to the first day of the MAP season in
accordance with reference (b).
