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. 4. FY-21 Active-Duty Officer Promotion Selection Boards (PSBs): The postponed FY-21 PSBs to recommend officers in the Line and Staff Corps and chief warrant officers on the Active-Duty List (ADL) for permanent promotion to the grades of commander, lieutenant commander and chief warrant officer will convene as follows: a. 6 July 2020 - Staff Corps Commander and Lieutenant Commander b. 13 July 2020 - Unrestricted/Restricted Line Lieutenant Commander c. 1 September 2020 - Chief Warrant Officer 5/4/3 5.

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. 11. Released by Vice Admiral John B.
