7.  NOTES
    A.  THE SRB FOR THIS RATING OR NAVY ENLISTED 
CLASSIFICATION (NEC) IS TIED TO AN INCUMBENT BILLET OR TO 
ORDERS NEGOTIATED FOR THE NEXT BILLET.  COMMANDS MUST VERIFY 
THE MEMBER IS CURRENTLY IN, OR HAS ORDERS TO A BILLET 
REQUIRING THIS NEC AND ANNOTATE THIS VERIFICATION IN THE 
COMMENTS SECTION OF THE PRECERT REQUEST.
    B.  AN SRB APPROVAL FOR ALL CT, IT, AND ITS RATINGS WILL
BE CONTINGENT UPON MEMBER HAVING A CURRENT SINGLE SCOPE 
BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION (SSBI), AN ACTIVE SSBI OR RECENT 
SUBMISSION OF AN SSBI PACKAGE.  COMMANDS MUST VERIFY THE 
MEMBER HAS A CURRENT SSBI, ACTIVE SSBI, OR HAS SUBMITTED A 
SSBI PACKAGE AND MAKE NOTE OF THIS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION 
OF THE PRECERT REQUEST.
    C.  MEMBERS HOLDING INACTIVE NUCLEAR NECS 3359 AND 
3389 MAY REENLIST AT THE AWARD LEVEL SPECIFIED FOR THE 
LAST ACTIVE NEC HELD WITH PRIOR ECM APPROVAL VIA E-MAIL 
NXAG_N133D2(AT)NAVY.MIL OR (703) 604-5491/DSN 664.  
REENLISTMENT COMPENSATION FOR ZONE C NUCLEAR TRAINED 
PERSONNEL HOLDING A NUCLEAR SUPERVISOR NEC SHALL BE PROVIDED 
UNDER THE ENLISTED SUPERVISOR RETENTION PAY (ESRP) PROGRAM 
IAW POLICIES AND PROCEDURES DETAILED IN REF F.
    D.  LETTERS APPEARING WITH AN NEC ARE FOR 
ADMINISTRATIVE USE ONLY.
    E.  SUBSURFACE OR SURFACE DESIGNATION DOES NOT MEAN 
AN INDIVIDUAL MUST BE SUBSURFACE OR ENLISTED SURFACE WARFARE 
SPECIALIST QUALIFIED, BUT INDICATES THE COMPONENT OF THE 
RATING IN WHICH THEY CAN REASONABLY BE EXPECTED TO SERVE.  
TRAINING, QUALIFICATIONS, AND PREVIOUS OR PROJECTED DUTY 
ASSIGNMENTS AT SEA WILL INDICATE THE APPROPRIATE RATING 
COMPONENT.  WHEN USING THE FORCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (FORMAN) 
AND THE OFFICER PERSONNEL INFORMATION SYSTEM (OPINS) TO 
INPUT A SRB PRECERT REQUEST, USE THE RATING (WITH APPROPRIATE 
SUFFIX DESIGNATION)/NEC AS SPECIFIED IN THIS NAVADMIN.  FOR 
EXAMPLE, SUBSURFACE ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN WITH NO NEC 
WOULD SUBMIT 'ETSS' ON PRECERT FOR RATING.
    F.  SUBSURFACE NECS.  SUBSURFACE ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN
14XXA QQQQ IDENTIFIES ALL SUBSURFACE ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN 
COMMUNICATIONS SAILORS WHO HOLD NECS BEGINNING WITH 14.  
SUBSURFACE ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN NAVIGATION 14XXB IDENTIFIES 
SUBSURFACE ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN NAVIGATION SAILORS AND 
INCLUDES ALL SUBSURFACE ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN NAVIGATION 
NECS BEGINNING WITH 14.
    G.  RATINGS ELIGIBLE FOR NEC 0304 ARE:  AWO, ET, QM, 
AND OS.
    H.  NEC 0000 (COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS "QUAD ZERO") IS 
LISTED HERE TO ESTABLISH THAT SAILORS IN THESE RATINGS/
CAREER FIELDS CAN HOLD ANY OR NO NEC AND STILL BE QUALIFIED 
FOR SRB PROVIDED THEY MEET ALL OTHER APPLICABLE NON-NEC 
RELATED CRITERIA.
    I. THE FOLLOWING NECS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE NEC 7815S: 
7805, 7817, 7873, 7875, AND 7876.

8.  LITTORAL COMBAT SHIP (LCS) GUIDANCE.  SAILORS ASSIGNED 
TO LCS PLATFORMS OR WITH ORDERS TO AN LCS PLATFORM WHO 
POSSESS MULTIPLE NEC'S SPECIFICALLY REQUIRED FOR LCS 
ASSIGNMENT ARE AUTHORIZED TO REENLIST FOR THE MOST 
LUCRATIVE SRB-ELIGIBLE NEC, REGARDLESS OF ASSIGNED RATING.

9.  EARLY REENLISTMENT OPPORTUNITY:  SAILORS SERVING IN TIER
ONE SKILLS, AS WELL AS THE EXCEPTIONS OUTLINED IN PARA 12.A 
OF REF B AND PARA 4 OF REF C, ARE ELIGIBLE TO REENLIST EARLY 
ANY TIME WITHIN THE FISCAL YEAR OF THEIR END OF ACTIVE 
OBLIGATED SERVICE (EAOS).  NUCLEAR SAILORS MAY STILL CROSS 
FISCAL YEAR BOUNDARIES.  ADDITIONALLY, SAILORS SERVING IN 
TIER TWO OR TIER THREE SRB SKILLS WHO RECEIVED AN EP IN 
BLOCK 45 OF THEIR MOST RECENT REGULAR PERIODIC EVALUATION OR 
FITNESS REPORT WILL BE ALLOWED  TO REENLIST EARLY ANY TIME 
WITHIN THE FISCAL YEAR OF THEIR EAOS.  NO TRANSFER, 
CONCURRENT, OR SPECIAL EVALUATIONS WILL APPLY. SAILORS 
ADVANCED WITHIN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THEIR EAOS WILL BE
ALLOWED TO SUBSTITUTE THE LAST REGULAR PERIODIC EVALUATION 
OR FITNESS REPORT IN THEIR PREVIOUS PAYGRADE.  PERSONNEL MUST 
EMAIL A SIGNED COPY OF THE EVALUATION TO NAVPERSCOM 
(PERS-811) ONCE THEIR PRECERT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED.  THIS 
REQUIREMENT IS ONLY FOR THOSE THAT FALL UNDER THE PROVISIONS 
OF THIS PARAGRAPH.

10.  SRB PRECERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS:
    A.  PERFORM-TO-SERVE (PTS):  COMMANDS ARE AUTHORIZED TO 
SUBMIT SRB REENLISTMENT REQUESTS PRIOR TO A MEMBER RECEIVING 
A PTS QUOTA; HOWEVER, THE PTS QUOTA REQUEST MUST HAVE BEEN 
SUBMITTED AND THE SRB REQUEST WILL NOT BE PROCESSED UNTIL 
THE MEMBER HAS RECEIVED PTS CONFIRMATION.  SRB REQUESTS 
WITHOUT PTS APPROVAL WILL STILL BE REJECTED IN THE OFFICER 
PERSONNEL INFORMATION SYSTEM (OPINS) TO KEEP THE COMMAND 
INFORMED OF POTENTIAL SRB APPROVAL ISSUES.  ONCE A MEMBER 
HAS AN APPROVED PTS QUOTA, THE COMMAND SHOULD CONTACT 
PERS-811 TO CLEAR ANY REJECTIONS.
    B.  COMMANDS ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT SRB REENLISTMENT 
REQUESTS TO PERS-811 VIA OPINS OR NSIPS 35-120 DAYS IN 
ADVANCE OF THE SAILOR'S REQUESTED REENLISTMENT DATE.  
REQUESTS SUBMITTED LESS THAN 35 DAYS PRIOR TO THE REQUESTED 
REENLISTMENT DATE WILL BE REJECTED; HOWEVER, COMMANDS MAY 
CONTACT PERS-811 FOR WAIVER ELIGIBILITY AND PROCEDURES. 
SAILORS MUST HAVE APPROVED PRECERTS BEFORE REENLISTING.  
THE SERVICING PERSONNEL OFFICE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR VERIFYING 
THE REENLISTMENT, POSTING THE CONTRACT, RELEASING THE FIRST 
PAYMENT, AND VERIFYING THE MASTER MILITARY PAY ACCOUNT.
    C.  SAILORS WITH APPROVED PRECERTS WHO DO NOT REENLIST 
ON THE DATE OR FOR THE TERM SPECIFIED IN THE PRECERT 
MESSAGE MUST HAVE THEIR COMMAND CONTACT NAVPERSCOM (PERS-
811) TO INITIATE A REENLISTMENT CANCELLATION TO AVOID 
PLACING SAILORS IN AN OVERPAID STATUS.
    D.  TO VALIDATE AN INOPERATIVE EXTENSION OF ENLISTMENT 
AND EXPEDITE PROCESSING OF AN SRB REQUEST, INCLUDE THE 
FOLLOWING IN THE REMARKS PARAGRAPH OF THE REQUEST:  TERM, 
NARRATIVE REASON, AUTHORITY, AND EXECUTION DATE OF ALL 
INOPERATIVE EXTENSIONS.  FAILURE TO VERIFY EXTENSIONS WILL 
CAUSE PROCESSING DELAYS AND MAY RESULT IN REJECTION OF 
THE REQUEST OR AN APPROVAL AT A LOWER AMOUNT.
    E.  SAILORS MUST OBTAIN AN APPROVAL FOR EXTENSION FROM 
NAVPERSCOM (PERS-811) IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE THE POTENTIAL 
FOR LOSS OF SRB ELIGIBILITY.

11.  THE FOLLOWING GUIDANCE IS PROVIDED ON NEC-SPECIFIC SRB 
AND LATERAL CONVERSIONS.  ACCEPTANCE OF A NEC-SPECIFIC SRB 
CONTRACT INDICATES AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE SAILOR AND THE 
NAVY TO USE SKILLS ATTRIBUTED TO THE NEC DURING THE SAILOR'S 
ENLISTMENT TO MEET FLEET READINESS REQUIREMENTS.  IN 
SUBSEQUENT TOURS, A SAILOR MUST BE WILLING TO BE DETAILED 
DURING THE NORMAL PROJECTED ROTATION DATE WINDOW TO AN 
AVAILABLE BILLET WITHIN THE SRB CONTRACTED NEC, CONSISTENT 
WITH SEA-SHORE FLOW REQUIREMENTS.  LATERAL CONVERSIONS MUST 
FOLLOW REF B, PARA 12.D.  LATERAL CONVERSION REQUESTS WILL 
NOT BE PROCESSED MORE THAN NINE MONTHS BEFORE THE EAOS.  
CONVERSIONS TO A RATE WITH A LOWER AWARD LEVEL WILL NOT BE 
APPROVED.  PERSONNEL IN A 'CLOSED-LOOP' NEC CAN REENLIST 
BY THE NEC ONLY.

12.  OBLIGATED SERVICE TO TRAIN (OTT) AND THEN REENLIST.

    Is the lap band still under review? Is it still a PDQ?

  2. NCCM(Ret) says:

    Amy,

    It is still a PDQ.

  3. Adam says:

    Does FCA stand for Fire Controlman Aegis? If so, can someone please explain how you can be a quadball Aegis tech? I believe it is just a general FC SRB. Anyone know?

  4. CANDACE says:

    Who is eligible for SRB? Is it only for first term sailors?

  5. NCCM(Ret) says:

    Candace,

    Those who are eligible are those who are up for reenlistment and in a rating/zone that gets an SRB as listed in the NAVADMIN. The zones are; Zone A is 2 to 6 years of active duty service, Zone B is 6 to 10 years, and Zone C is 10 to 14 years.

  6. Autumn says:

    I applied for my bonus within my EAOS, but the command waited too late to turn it in. They then took actions to do a board that was sent in at least 30 to 45 days ago. How does it usually take for the paperwork to be reviewed?

  7. NCCM(Ret) says:

    Autumn,

    I recommend contacting the folks at the phone number in the NAVADMIN; they may be able to tell you where it is and give a good prognosis of the request’s outcome. (Keep in mind that a lot of the civilians were furloughed for a couple of weeks; I am sure that will add to any delays)

  8. Jason says:

    When is the next SRB message / follow-up slated to be release? I’ve noticed that there hasn’t been any talk its release since typically there are rumors just before it does come out.

  9. NCCM(Ret) says:

    Jason,

    I have wondered the same thing. As with the talk about enlistment bonuses and other monetary incentives, SRB seems to have fallen into a hole. That said, with the Navy’s high retention rates, when the next one does come out, it would not surprise me if it had less ratings and lower multiples/amounts.

  10. NCCM(Ret) says:

    Jason,

    Amazingly, although it didn’t change anything, a NAVADMIN discussing SRB came out today.

  11. Jason says:

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully they come out with the next message about award levels.

  12. alexis says:

    I have two sailors wanting to apply for an SRB, they are re-enlisting with less than 35 days before they transfer to their new duty stations. Would an extension to their obliserve date serve them better than a re-enlistment?

  13. NCCM(Ret) says:

    Alexis,

    Without knowing if SRB multiples will change before the date they plan to actually reenlist, I recommend reenlisting for SRB while you know you can get it. But, that said, the CCC should be able to shed light on each individual circumstance.
