MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- The fiscal year 2015 (FY-15) performance-based Senior Enlisted Continuation board (SECB) will convene Oct. 27 according to a Navy message released Aug. 14.

"The SECB is a performance based board intended to ensure our mess meets and maintains our high standards of ethics and professional conduct," said Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education Fleet Master Chief (AW/SW) April D. Beldo. "Using the criteria laid out in the precepts, the board will review an individual's record and decide to either 'select' or 'not-select' for continuation. Quite simply this is about quality. There are no preset numbers, but for every person not selected for continuation, there is a vacancy created in which we can promote a new chief into next year."

The performance indicators are detailed in the board precept and on the NPC continuation page at

As outlined in NAVADMIN 180/14, active component (AC) and Full Time Support (FTS) E-7 to E-9 Sailors with at least 19 years of active service computed from their active duty service date as of Feb. 28, 2014 and three-years' time-in-rate (TIR) as of June 30, 2014; and selected Reserve (SELRES) and Voluntary Training Unit (VTU) E-7 to E-9 Sailors with at least 20 years qualifying service as of Feb. 28, 2014, and three-years TIR by June 30, 2014, will be considered by the board.

The Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center will publish the names of board-eligible Sailors Aug. 29. The names will be posted to the Navy Enlisted Advancement System website at, and individuals can view their board eligibility profile sheet on Navy Knowledge Online(

Commands will be able to review their FY-15 SECB listing for accuracy. If an eligible candidate is not listed, commands must contact NPC to make the required adjustment. Sept. 22 is the last day for commands to resolve eligibility issues.

Letters to the board must be received by Oct. 6. See NAVADMIN 180/14 for submission procedures and mailing addresses.

Board results will be posted on BUPERS On-Line for command access only, and commanding officers will be notified via a Personal For NAVADMIN when this occurs.

AC/FTS Sailors who are not selected for continuation must transfer to the Fleet Reserve or retire by Aug. 31, 2015, unless operationally waived by the Deputy Chief of Naval Personnel. SELRES/VTU Sailors must transfer by Sept. 1, 2015. Sailors with an approved operational waiver must transfer by Nov. 30.
