RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces revised Special Duty Assignment Pay (SDAP) levels for the regular component, reserve component, full-time support (FTS) and qualified selected reserve enlisted personnel on active duty and supersedes reference (a). The SDAP program enhances our Navy’s ability to size, shape, and stabilize our force by providing a monetary incentive to encourage enlisted personnel with specific designated skills to apply their knowledge and experience to uniquely challenging assignments.
2. Increases to existing levels are effective immediately. Reductions are effective 60 days from the release of this NAVADMIN. All changes to levels are summarized in paragraph 6 for ease of reference. SDAP levels, new special duty assignments (SDA), SDAP reductions, and unit identification code (UIC) revisions are provided at the following website: BUPERS SRB. Commands are responsible to ensure increases and decreases are submitted via their local servicing Personnel Support Detachments (PSD) or into the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System.
3. Commanding officers are required to certify that service members meet all qualifying criteria established by references (b), (c) and this NAVADMIN prior to receiving SDAP. Qualification criteria includes: All qualifications completed, including personal qualification standards and under instruction watches, and assigned to and working in a billet on the command’s enlisted distribution verification process identified as an SDA.
4. Each Sailor is eligible for only one SDAP entitlement at a time and, unless otherwise noted, commands must ensure the number of personnel receiving SDAP does not exceed the number of authorized SDAP billets.
5. Commands holding SDAP billets are reminded that annual re-certification required by reference (b) begins in June. Guidance for the re-certification process will be announced via separate correspondence. Commands, via PSD if applicable, are responsible for making any rate adjustments as directed by this NAVADMIN.
