MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Sailors who submitted a board package to the Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14) Active Chief Petty Officer (CPO) Selection Board can confirm its receipt at Navy Personnel Command (NPC) by clicking on the "Selection Board Status" link on www.npc.navy.mil, officials said April 30.
"I encourage all candidates to review their record for completeness," said Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Force Master Chief (SW/AW/EXW) Leland E. Moore. "There is no requirement to submit a package unless something is missing from your record that you want the board to consider."
Per NAVADMIN 294/12, the selection board will review the Official Military Personal File (OMPF) of all candidates. If documents are missing from a candidate's OMPF, they may submit those documents, along with a cover letter to the selection board president, to be reviewed by the board.
Because of volume, certain documents for enlisted Sailors including training, education, qualifications, and awards are only submitted to the OMPF when a Sailor reenlists or separates. So, Sailors, who have recently achieved a warfare designator, college degree, significant qualifications or other pertinent achievements, may want to submit a letter to the board with supporting documents.
Packages submitted to the active-duty CPO board must be received by the NPC Customer Service Center (CSC) by May 28.
Packages must include a cover letter and each document in their package must include the member's full social security number. Candidates may not send classified documents.
Refer to the NAVADMIN 294/12 for guidance and mailing information for candidates who wish to submit a package through traditional mail or encrypted e-mail.
Documents reviewed by the CPO board can include:
* Procurement, enlistment/reenlistment data;
* Navy Enlisted Classifications and Warfare Designations;
* Evaluations and Fitness Reports;
* Administrative remarks;
* Training and education;
* Decorations, medals, and awards.
Letters sent to a selection board for consideration will not be added to a service member's OMPF permanently. BUPERSINST 1070.27 outlines all items that should or should not be submitted by service members and how to submit those documents.
The FY-14 Active CPO Selection Board is scheduled to convene June 17. The active duty CPO selection board is the largest selection board conducted in the Navy. The board typically lasts five weeks, with results forwarded to the Chief of Naval Personnel for final approval.
