MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Citing an increase in orders lead time, the Navy announced April 4 the cancellation of two NAVADMINS relating to permanent changes of station (PCS).

NAVADMIN 088/18 cancels NAVADMINS 203/14, which established a requirement for Sailors to complete an overseas/remote duty screening before their official orders were released, and 159/17 which established the PCS orders letter of intent.

"We expect orders lead time to remain around six months for the foreseeable future, and the Career Management System-Interactive Detailing window is now eight - 12 months," said Capt. Rick Cheeseman, acting director, Career Management Department, Navy Personnel Command (NPC). "Given these changes Sailors will be receiving orders with plenty of time to complete their pre-PCS requirements and letters of intent provide no additional advantage."

The Career Management Department is committed to customer service and in the event of a change in orders lead time, budgetary and other issues, NPC will resume issuing letters of intent to best meet Sailors' needs, Cheeseman added.
