SUBJ/POLICY FOR ACTIVATION AND EMPLOYMENT OF RESERVE COMPONENT FORCES//
REF/B/DOC/-/TITLE 10 U.S.C.//
NARR/Reference (a) is SECNAV Memo of 30JAN2023 which expands the ability to
access Reserve Component (RC) Sailors for involuntary activation.
Reference (b) is Title 10 U.S.C.
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN provides Navy's Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) policy per
reference (a), defining policy for the activation and employment of RC forces
until 30 September 2023. Subsequent annual NAVADMINs will be released in
advance of Individual Augmentee (IA) sourcing for the next FY in order to
provide Active Component (AC) and RC IA fulfillment guidance.
2. Background. Reference (a) directs Total Force sourcing and sharing of IA
requirements through Service policies that implement careful management of
Selective Reservist (SELRES) mobilizations within reference (b) authorities.
3. Policy. A Total Force sourcing solution is needed to enable the Navy's
flexible response to global crisis, while supporting the RC focus on growing
capacity and capability to compete in a high-end conflict. In support of a
Total Force sourcing solution, RC utilization for FY23 IA billets will be
capped at 50 percent of the total requirement for the fiscal year. When
required, involuntary activation of SELRES members will be accomplished
through billet-based activation (BBA) in accordance with the guidance
contained in reference (a). This ensures RC Sailors maintain currency for
strategic competition either by fulfilling IA requirements that contribute
substantially to maintaining their specific billet or core capability
skillsets. BBA will provide training and experience for RC Sailors to
promote warfighting readiness.
4. RC personnel are authorized and highly encouraged to volunteer for
mobilization opportunities. These activations will continue to be viewed
favorably for career development as well as promotion and advancement, as
directed in selection board convening orders and precepts.
5. In addition to mobilizations, the RC provides activations supporting the
AC via Active Duty for Operational Support, Active Duty Training and
voluntary Definite Recalls. AC commands may plan and budget for continued
and even expanded utilization of these resources in order to access RC
