RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Full-Time Support
(FTS) Aviation Command Retention Bonus (ACRB).
2. A vital part of developing a total force strategy and maintaining combat
readiness is to provide appropriate incentives to retain skilled personnel
for critical naval aviation enterprise billets. The FTS Aviation Bonus (AvB)
Program, consisting of the Aviation Department Head Retention Bonus (ADHRB)
and ACRB, incentivizes highly talented, hard-working, career- minded naval
aviators and naval flight officers who choose to remain for a post command
commander (PCC) tour. The return on investment is the retention for
continued naval service of our aviation warfighters with their valuable skill
sets and leadership experience. Information on the
FY-20 FTS ADHRB will be released in separate correspondence.
3. FTS ACRB
a. The FTS ACRB is designed to retain those officers with the
capabilities and command experience in our primary warfighting missions who
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-20
ACRB incentivizes their continued service in follow-on assignments requiring
senior aviation leaders.
b. ACRB applicants must have screened on the FY-20 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 or fleet replacement squadron commands.
Consult the FY-20 ACRB Program information for specific eligibility criteria
and limitations. The application opportunity commences with the release of
this NAVADMIN and closes on 31 August 2020.
c. All FY-20 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-20 ACRB obligates contractees to 3 years of
obligated service to include full completion of a 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 3 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.
4. Additional AvB Information
a. Officers accepting AvB contracts are not precluded from
participating in the Career Intermission Program (CIP). Officers interested
in both AvB and CIP should contact the AvB program manager and their detailer
for more information.
