NARR/REF A IS SECNAVINST 1320.1A, SECRETARY OF THE NAVY TOURS WITH INDUSTRY
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022-2023 Secretary of
the Navy Tours with Industry (SNTWI) Program, as directed in reference (a).
This program is a unique and non- traditional opportunity for exceptional
active duty and full-time support Sailors (E-6 to O-6) to work with
partnering corporations followed by an immediate Navy Return on Investment
(ROI) tour to leverage the knowledge and skills obtained from the partnering
corporations. SNTWI fellows are included and immersed in industry to learn
and observe corporate processes and best practices. The purpose of the
SNTWI Program is to bring these innovative ideas, processes and proven best
practices immediately back to the Navy.
Immediate follow on ROI tours are generally required but may be deferred at
the Commander, Navy Personnel Command (CNPC) level in special cases. Past
SNTWI fellows were assigned to VMware, Qualcomm, Apple, Boeing, Tesla,
Huntington Ingalls Industries, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, GE Digital,
Amazon, FedEx, Northrup Grumman, Space X, LinkedIn and USAA.
2. Application packages must be routed through the detailer of the
applicant and the respective community distribution division will select
candidates. Eligibility will be based solely on individual community needs,
demands and desired learning objectives as well as the ability of an
applicant to complete an immediate follow on ROI tour. The SNTWI
application package will consist of Secretary of the Navy Tours with
Industry Program Application (NAVPERS Form 1330/4), military biography with
picture, resume, learning objectives and identified immediate follow on ROI
tour approved by community leadership. An example of an SNTWI package can

standards of readiness. Applicants must be within three months of their
projected rotation date by July 2022 to be eligible for participation.

Participation in the SNTWI Program and completion of an immediate follow on
ROI tour should not negatively impact the career progression of the
applicant. Applicants not positively endorsed by their community will not
be considered for this program.
4. Service Obligation. Tours are normally 10-12 months in length,
depending on community and corporate requirements. Selectees incur a
service obligation for three times the number of months in the SNTWI Program
(i.e. 30-36 months) to complete an immediate follow on ROI tour.
