RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN supports references (a) through (c) and announces the
assignment optimization plan for Active Component (AC) and Training and
Administration of Reserve (TAR) chief, senior chief and master chief petty
officers (CPO, SCPO and MCPO respectively).
Commander, Navy Personnel Command (COMNAVPERSCOM), Enlisted Assignment
Division (PERS-40) will work with the Fleet readiness integrators (FRI), type
commanders (TYCOM) and budget submitting office (BSO) N1 staffs to evaluate
all chiefs assigned to billets with incorrect paygrades or those who are not
aligned to funded billet requirements. The goal of this optimization plan is
to ensure our most experienced enlisted Sailors are aligned to billets which
specifically need their training, leadership and experience.
This plan will lead to the realignment of chiefs into billets appropriate to
their skills and experience.
2. COMNAVPERSCOM will host two virtual senior enlisted manning summits in
Millington, TN. Participants may attend in person (Fleet, FRI, TYCOM and BSO
participants will be given seating priority) or by dial-in teleconference,
with dial-in information distributed separately. The SCPO and MCPO summit
will be 25-29 July 2022. The CPO summit is scheduled 24-28 October 2022,
contingent on release of selection board results. In-person groups
supporting the summits will be governed by the applicable health protection
condition restrictions, see local guidance for specifics. During
registration for the summits, attendees have and will be provided with
specific risk mitigation instructions. The summits will allow Fleets, TYCOMs
and BSOs to work with COMNAVPERSCOM to fill their most critical gapped
a. Enlisted Readiness and Placement Branch (PERS-4013) have provided a
list of misaligned chiefs to the FRIs. The FRIs have distributed the list of
misaligned Sailors to the TYCOM and BSO N1s.
Prior to the summit, PERS-4013 will evaluate chief billet requirements in
MyNavy Assignment (MNA).
b. Chiefs who are aligned to billets of an incorrect paygrade may be
subject to the following options:
(1) Realignment to an in-paygrade requirement at their current
(2) Movement to a valid billet at another command.
(3) If immediate alignment to a valid in-grade billet is not
reasonably possible, then adjustment of projected rotation date
(PRD) to enter the order negotiation window earlier than their current PRD.
Chiefs in receipt of a PRD adjustment should expect to negotiate for orders
to fill an in-paygrade requirement and will be considered a sea or shore
roller based on a ratio of sea and shore duty billets available within their
c. Enlisted manning stakeholders identified in paragraph 1 shall review
misaligned personnel, as well as Fleet billet vacancies and provide their
recommendations for consideration at the manning Summit.
d. Fleet readiness concerns will guide all decisions and actions, but
each move will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
e. The movement of realigned personnel will begin approximately
30 days after each summit concludes. Any out-of-area moves will receive
adequate time to prepare and execute. All transfer timelines will take into
account the vacancies that they will create and those they will fill, and
limit or prevent *double-stuffing* of billets.
f. CPO optimization efforts will not include nuclear chiefs, nuclear
billet structures, or nuclear enlisted manning stakeholders.
3. The summit precept requires participants to evaluate all Sailors without
prejudice or partiality. Each participant must pay particular attention to
each Sailor and billet to ensure that they are meeting the intention of the
optimization process. During deliberations, participants may consider any
negative impacts a realignment may have on the activity or the Sailor.
Before any decisions are made, TYCOM/BSO and FRIs will provide their input.
If the requested actions are within one FRI, the FRI will make final
decisions. If the requested action involves more than one FRI and there is a
disagreement, the manning control authority will make the final decision. A
copy of the precept will be provided to participants by the summit
4. Fleet activities shall continue evaluating MNA alignments to ensure that
Sailors are accurately aligned aboard their current activity. Chiefs should
be aligned to billets for their specific paygrades. If Sailors of any
paygrade need to be realigned to another billet, the activity manning manager
(AMM) should submit a member realignment request (MRR) in MNA. If the MRR is
approved, PERS-4013 will update the alignment. AMMs should contact their
placement coordinator in PERS-4013 with any questions or concerns.
5. Key messages:
a. Sailors. We are working to better align our enlisted supervisors to
billets which require their skills and experience.
The emphasis on operational readiness and unit prioritization reflect our
identity as a sea service. We must preserve the readiness of the Fleet and
ensure that chiefs are optimally assigned to meet mission readiness. We will
take each Sailors personal considerations into account.
b. Commands. Commanders, commanding officers, executive officers and
command master chiefs must ensure their Sailors understand the intent of this
message. Your cooperation and support of this senior enlisted optimization
will greatly contribute to achieving maximum Fleet and operational readiness.
