RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the fiscal year (FY) 2021 Full-Time
Support (FTS) Aviation Command Retention Bonus (ACRB), authorized in
line with references (a) and (b). The FY-21 FTS Aviation Department
Head Retention Bonus (ADHRB) will be addressed in a future NAVADMIN.
2. The FTS ACRB is designed to retain those officers with the
capabilities and command experience in our primary warfighting
missions that are critical for the future of our service. Our cadre
of commander (CDR) commanding officers (CO) lead our Naval Aviation
Enterprise today, and they are the major commanders and flag
officers of tomorrow. Their skills and leadership experience are
essential to the success of the Navy. The FY-21 ACRB incentivizes
their continued service in follow-on assignments requiring senior
a. ACRB applicants must have screened on the FY-21 Aviation
Command Screen Board (ACSB) as CO of an eligible operational,
operational training, or special mission CDR command in order to
apply. Eligible commands are those for which the annual ACSB
selects officers to serve as CO, excluding second-in-
grade/sequential/bonus/fleet replacement squadron commands. Consult
the FY-21 ACRB program information for specific eligibility criteria
and limitations. The application opportunity commences with the
release of this NAVADMIN and closes on 31 August 2021.
b. All FY-21 ACRB contracts will be worth $100,000. Eligible
officers will receive an initial payment of $34,000 and two
anniversary payments of $33,000. Participation in the FY-21 ACRB
obligates contractees to three years of obligated service to include
full completion of a post command commander (PCC) tour, which may be
between 24 and 36 months depending on assignment. ACRB obligation
ends at the completion of 22 years of service, the projected
rotation date of the assigned PCC tour, or three years from contract
acceptance date, whichever is later. ACRB applications for those
currently under ADHRB obligations will be accepted, held in abeyance
and activated upon ADHRB contract expiration.
3. Additional ACRB Information
a. Officers accepting ACRB contracts are not precluded from
participating in the career intermission program (CIP). Officers
interested in both ACRB and CIP should contact the ACRB program
manager and their detailer for more information.
