MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- The chief of naval personnel announced June 3 the cancellation of the Full Time Support commander Selective Early Release from Active Duty board for fiscal year 2012 (FY-12) and the convening of the FY-12 selective retention board for Full Time Support captains in NAVADMIN 176/11.
Updates to the Full Time Support (FTS) commander inventory projections resulted in the board's cancellation.
The FTS captain Selective Retirement (SELRET) board is scheduled to convene Sept. 13. The Secretary of the Navy's policy requires all FTS captains to be continued for service by a board when they go beyond three years time-in-grade.
The board is designed to align the FTS captain inventory with Navy end strength requirements, ensuring optimal promotion opportunities and allowing junior officer accessions to meet operational requirements.
FTS captains who were promoted during FY-10 will be considered for continuation beyond three years time-in-grade (first gate). Also considered for continuation are captains who were promoted in FY-07 (second gate).
First-gate captains not continued must retire at three years time-in-grade while those not continued at the second gate must retire no later than Sept. 1, 2012.
Captains selected for continuation beyond their second-gate can continue to serve until they reach 30 years of commissioned service or the statutory age limit, whichever is earlier.
Communication or correspondence with the captain SELRET board shall follow the same guidelines as with a standard promotion board. Captains requiring additional reference information can visit the general information page on the Navy Personnel Command (NPC) website at http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/boards/generalboardinfo/.
The board will formally notify captains not selected for retention once the board proceedings are approved.
Information concerning the board will be posted on the reserve personnel management and FTS community manager websites, when available, at http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/career/reservepersonnelmgmt or http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/officer/communitymanagers/reserve/fts.
