MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Navy Personnel Command (NPC) announced Aug. 16 that it has launched a new enlisted retention board (ERB) Web page on their command website, www.npc.navy.mil.
"Our objective is to provide Sailors and their families with a one-stop shop for all enlisted retention board-related information to answer their questions in a centralized location," said Lt. Cmdr. Delmy Robinson, strategic communications officer, NPC.
The new Web page will contain links to guidance and policy, quota information, timelines, frequently asked questions, and ERB news stories and videos.
It can be found on NPC's homepage under "Boards" or at www.npc.navy.mil/boards/ERB .
As a result of record high retention and low attrition among active duty Sailors and to meet current and future planned end strength controls, the Navy will conduct a focused ERB for 31 specific ratings that are more than 103 percent manned.
According to Navy administrative message (NAVADMIN) 129/11, the board will examine the performance of approximately 16,000 Sailors. An estimated 3,000 Sailors will not be retained on active duty but will be encouraged to apply for the Selected Reserve, if not accepted for rate conversion.
Estimated ERB quotas were posted Aug. 1, which can also be found on the new Web page.
The final update of estimated ERB quotas will be released with the precept after the board convenes.
For more information on the ERB, you can read the NAVADMINs, visit the NPC ERB Web page www.npc.navy.mil or contact the NPC customer service center at CSCmailbox@navy.mil or 1-866-U-ASK-NPC.
