MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Nearly 18,000 Sailors are selection-board eligible for the Fiscal Year 2014 (FY-14) Active Chief Petty Officer Selection Board (Cycle 218), officials said March 25.

"Making board is a significant accomplishment that Sailors should feel good about, but it is only one step in the process to earn those anchors," said Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Force Master Chief (SW/AW/EXW) Leland E. Moore. "Now more than ever, these board-eligible Sailors need to ensure their Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) is correct and up to date with the latest evaluations, awards and other appropriate information because that is the information viewed by the selection board."

Sailors can review their OMPF online by selecting the "OMPF - My Record" link under the BUPERS Online (BOL) Application Menu Log available at www.bol.navy.mil.

The selection board will also review each candidates' personnel summary record (PSR) parts I, II and III. Sailors can view their PSR by logging into BOL using the link above.

Candidates may submit any missing, new or additional information like recently obtained qualifications, degrees and awards to be considered via a letter to the board. Letters to the board, commonly called selection board packages, must be received by the NPC Customer Service Center by April 22 for the Full Time Support/Canvasser Recruiter Board (FTS/CANREC) and May 28 for the active-component board.

All correspondence should be on plain white paper, paper clipped (no staples, binders, folders or tabs), and submitted under a cover letter to the president of the board. The candidate's full name and social security number must be affixed and legible on all documents submitted.

Reserve letters to the board must be addressed to:

Navy Personnel Command Customer Service Center President
FY14 Reserve E7 Selection Board #336 (FTS/AGR/CANREC)
5720 Integrity Drive
Millington, TN 38055

Active-component letters to the board must be addressed to:

Navy Personnel Command Customer Service Center President
FY14 Active E7 Selection Board #360
5720 Integrity Drive
Millington, TN 38055

Letters and supporting documents may also be submitted via encrypted e-mail to cscselboard@navy.mil.

Use of special handling mail (certified or registered) is not advised due to significant delays in handling. Third party correspondence not submitted by the candidate will not be presented to the board.

"This is a very exciting time for Sailors aspiring to become chief petty officers," said Moore. "We can't select everybody, so Sailors who are serious about making Chief will ensure that all their hard work and effort are seen by the board."

The FTS/CANREC E7 Selection Board is scheduled to convene May 13, and the active-component selection board is scheduled to convene June 17.

The active-component chief petty officer board is the largest selection board conducted in the Navy and typically lasts four weeks.

After the selection board reviews the records of all eligible candidates and selects the best and fully qualified Sailors based on the precept, their results are forwarded to the Chief of Naval Personnel for final approval.

More information can be found in NAVADMIN 294/12 and under the selection board tab available at www.npc.navy.mil.
