MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- The Navy announced the cancellation of Standard Transfer Orders (STO) and the establishment of the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) order writing module in a message Oct. 17.

According to NAVADMIN 244/14, the NSIPS module must be used for all orders for transferring Sailors for unit moves, unit decommissionings, Base Realignment and Closure moves, Overseas Tour Extension Incentive Program, and enlisted separations and retirements. All other Permanent Change of Station orders will be written by Navy Personnel Command through the appropriate detailer.

Commanding officers and officers-in-charge cannot write orders allocating NPC funds unless they use the NSIPS module, the message states.

Units that are not supported by a Personnel Support Detachment (PSD) or a Customer Service Detachment (CSD) have until Oct. 31 to start using the NSIPS order writing module. PSD/CSDs will not process STOs after Sept. 30.

Some ships are exempt from the transition while NSIPS upgrades are taking place. They are:

* All CVNs
* USS FRANK CABLE (AS 40)
* USS EMORY S. LAND (AS 39)
* USS MOUNT WHITNEY (LCC 20)
