RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the notice of convening of the FY-
21 Active Duty Officer Lateral Transfer and Redesignation Boards.
The lateral transfer and redesignation process is a key tool by which the
Navy manages the talents of its officers. It provides flexibility in the
Active-Duty officer community manning and improves the Navys return on
investment in officer training and education by leveraging the specialized
skillsets of officers throughout their careers. As part of the process,
applications from qualified unrestricted line, restricted line, staff corps,
and non- off-ramp limited duty officers (LDO) will be accepted in line with
below schedule. Officers in LDO off-ramp communities requesting to
redesignate within their parent community, as well as full-time support and
selected reserve officers are not eligible to apply for this board. All
officers considering applying for lateral transfer or redesignation through
this board are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with references
(a) through (l). Board results will be posted on the Navy Personnel Command
(NPC) Active- Duty Lateral Transfer and Redesignation Board website -
The FY-21 Active-Duty Officer Lateral Transfer and Redesignation Board

service, or time-in-service must submit a waiver request in addition to, or
in conjunction with, their lateral transfer and redesignation application.
b. All application packages must include a letter from the current
commanding officer, acknowledging their review of the application. It should
include their positive or negative endorsement of the officer application and
specifically address any waiver requests by the officer. These letters must

community (68XX), and submarine communication community (629X) are designated
for off-ramp as listed in references (k) and (l). Those who desire to
redesignate within their parent community should submit their requests in
line with reference (k) and (l) vice this board.
3. Submit applications and waiver requests (as required), in line with the
lateral transfer LOI, which can be viewed on the MNP website.
4. Applications (including signed command endorsement) and waiver requests

Active-Duty officers to transfer from their current community. Each YG is
subject to change prior to the board convening.
