RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the recommencement of promotion, 
advancement, continuation, milestone and other administrative selection 
boards that were postponed in line with reference (a) and will be convened at 
Navy Personnel Command (NPC).  After pausing administrative and statutory 
promotion boards to assess conditions and properly incorporate risk 
mitigation measures, we plan to recommence convening of selection boards at 
NPC in Millington, TN on 1 July with out-of-area participants.  In the 
interim, we have completed some smaller administrative boards via virtual 
means and in some cases using local area membership, and will continue to do 
so where appropriate. The revised schedule for officer promotion and 
associated continuation selection boards and enlisted advancement selection 
boards is provided below.  The schedule for community milestone and other 
administrative selection boards to be convened at NPC is available at 
https://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/boards/selectionboardsupport/Pages/FY21-Board-Schedule.aspx.
Some communities will execute their milestone and other administrative 
selection boards by virtual means or at locations other than NPC.  Refer to 
community announcements on your applicable community section of the NPC 
website at https://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/Pages/default.aspx or 
contact your detailer for specific information concerning these boards.

2.  In line with reference (a), eligibility will be as of the original board 
convening date.  Official Military Personnel Files for use during the boards 
are captured as of the original board convening date.  Deadlines for 
correspondence to a board remain the same as originally set with the 
exception of the Reserve E-7 Board, which now has a deadline of 18 May 2020 
per reference (b).  The Reserve E-7 Board correspondence deadline was 
extended to compensate for delays in the Reserve E-7 eligibility.  In order 
to maintain a fair and impartial balance across the fleet, the remaining 
correspondence deadlines remain the same.  Should Service Member eligibility 
remain unclear, submit correspondence regardless.

3.  The health, safety and well-being of those supporting the selection board 
mission is paramount in a COVID-19 informed environment and precautions to 
protect all participants will be taken.  While all the planned COVID-19 risk 
mitigation measures are too numerous to detail in this NAVADMIN, collectively 
these prudent precautions are critical to the accomplishment of the selection 
board mission and apply in lieu of restriction of movement (ROM) protocols 
that would otherwise apply for essential travel prior to and following 
membership on a selection board.  Precautions include, but are not limited 
to, the following risk mitigation measures:
    a.  Minimizing risk to force by combining boards and recycling board 
membership across multiple boards to reduce travel requirements.
    b.  Phased convening of our largest boards to minimize number of board 
members within board spaces at any one time.
    c.  Modifying the boardroom and tank layout to maximize social 
distancing.
    d.  Self-assessment of individual health prior to travel, precautions 
during travel such as Service Members sourcing from locations that maximize 
the use of direct flights or individual ground transportation (POV or rental) 
where practicable, use of face coverings during travel and additional shuttle 
service runs with occupancy limits to/from the Memphis International Airport.
    e.  Revised protocols for entrance into board spaces that include COVID-
19 questionnaires, daily touchless body temperature readings and wristbands 
for rapid identification of cleared membership within board spaces.
    f.  Alternative meal plans, to include furnished breakfast, lunch and 
dinner to maximize social distancing and eliminate the need to depart Naval 
Support Activity Millington.
    g.  Additional cleaning services to maintain the highest standards of 
cleanliness within the dining facility, conference room (additional dining 
area) and all board spaces.
    h.  Additional personal protective equipment available to board 
membership as necessary.
    i.  Prominently displayed and adequately supplied hand-sanitizer 
throughout each board.

8.  Reference (c) announced the solicitation of enlisted selection board 
participants (Service Members and recorders) and provided eligibility 
criteria for serving.  The criteria of reference (c) continue to apply, but 
as the board dates have changed, the previously promulgated due dates for 
receipt of Service Member and recorder applications are no longer applicable.  
Sailors meeting the eligibility criteria and availability to serve as members 
or recorders for a board are strongly encouraged to submit applications as 
soon as practicable.  Board Presidents, Senior Enlisted Advisors, recorders 
and other specified board members will comprise a core group whose services 
will span the entire duration of a board.  The service of other board members 
will be required only for particular phase(s) of a board based on rating 
expertise and availability.
Refer to paragraph 7 above for the dates of the phases in which the various 
ratings will be considered.  Applicants must clearly state their availability 
in the application.  Details for application submission are provided in 
reference (c).

9.  Point of contact information for submitting enlisted advancement 
selection board nominations is as follows:
    a.  Mr. Bryan Gillentine at (901) 874-3223 / DSN 882.
    b.  Dr. Ruby Snowden at (901) 874-2209 / DSN 882.
    c.  Email:  PERS-805.fct(at)navy.mil.
    d.  General Board inquiries:  MyNavy Career Center (MNCC) at
(833) 330-6622 / askmncc(at)navy.mil.

10.  Navy leadership is committed to ensuring no Sailor is disadvantaged by 
the delay in any selection board convening or during the consideration of the 
record of any eligible Sailor by a board.  Although review, approval and 
Senate confirmation (where applicable) of board results cannot occur this 
year with traditional timing, selectees for promotion or advancement can 
expect to be assigned the original date of rank and receive any associated 
back pay and allowances warranted.  Enlisted advancement board results are 
expected to be approved and announced within 30 days after a board adjourns.  
Due to the additional reviews required following officer promotion boards, 
results are expected to be approved and announced by ALNAV approximately 100 
days after a board adjourns.  Efforts will be made to accelerate these 
processes.  Subsequent to officer promotion board approval and ALNAV release, 
Senate confirmation is required prior to promotion of active-duty commanders 
and lieutenant commanders.  Promotion authorizations and associated dates of 
rank will be announced via the existing monthly promotion NAVADMIN process.
