MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Command Career Counselors with access to Career Waypoints (C-WAY) may now submit applications for their Sailors’ re-enlistments, component transfer, change of rate and separation intentions via C-WAY, which is now hosted on Bupers Online (BOL), the Navy announced Feb. 20.
This system update is a step toward providing access to all Sailors, said Capt. Dave Whitehead, the director of Military Community Management, Bureau of Navy Personnel.
“The transition of C-WAY to BOL is a preparatory step toward the release of Sailor Self-Service Access (SSSA) in the coming months,” Whitehead said. “SSSA will provide Sailors with read-only access to review their C-WAY applications and the ability to verify accuracy of their corporate information within the C-WAY system.”
The C-WAY system is a corporate Information Technology system which provides a mechanism for matching personnel inventory to requirements with the best performing Sailors.
SSSA will provide Sailors the opportunity to access the career exploration module - for instance, to explore rating opportunities for Professional Apprenticeship Career Track (PACT) Sailors to verify qualifications for designation.
For rated Sailors, the career exploration module can identify alternative rating opportunities for which they qualify via rate conversion. SSSA is a critical bridge in the development of a Detailing Marketplace that enables a more transparent distribution system with Sailors having more insight and choices regarding their career options. The near-term design plan is for the seamless integration of C-WAY and CMS-ID functions into a single coherent career management tool.
“This streamlined access directly supports Sailor 2025 and transformation initiatives,” Whitehead said, “This shift provides for a more robust and flexible technology and enables transition to the cloud computing environment.”
