From NPC:

Some Sailors May Experience Compressed PCS Timelines this Fall

Release Date: 08/18/2009

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class (AW) LaTunya Howard, Naval Personnel Command Public AffairsMILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) — The Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP) released an update in NAVADMIN 236/09 on permanent change of station (PCS) orders indicating that some Sailors set to move in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 (FY10) will receive their orders after Oct. 1.

The recent supplemental funding from Congress allowed Navy Personnel Command (NPC) to resume normal order writing for the fourth quarter this fiscal year. This followed a temporary hold initiated in April.

“Using the prioritization strategy developed in Millington, we mitigated the impact of the initial PCS shortfall and were largely successful in minimizing the impacts on Sailors and their families,” said Rear Adm. Don Quinn, commander NPC and deputy CNP. “One of the mitigation actions was to shift a number of projected rotation dates (PRDs) to FY10.”

Although funds were restored for those receiving orders through September, the majority of PRDs that were shifted to FY10 will remain adjusted.

Current funding levels support all identified fourth quarter FY09 moves. However, a PCS obligation policy change that went into effect earlier this year means that PCS funds must be obligated when orders are released, instead of when the Sailor detaches. The result is that some of the FY10 orders cannot be released until the new fiscal year.

“Because of the additional FY09 funding, approximately 4,000 Sailors scheduled to detach in the first quarter of FY10 will receive orders soon,” said Quinn.

“However, up to 14,000 Sailors slated to detach during the first quarter of FY10 will not receive orders until after 1 Oct.”

RMKS/1.  THE RECENT RESTORATION OF PERMANENT CHANGE OF STATION (PCS) 
FUNDS ALLOWS NAVY PERSONNEL COMMAND (NPC) TO PROVIDE PCS ORDERS TO ALL 
SAILORS WITH IDENTIFIED FY09 ROTATION DATES.  UNFORTUNATELY, REMAINING 
FY09 PCS FUNDS COMBINED WITH THE POLICY THAT REQUIRES FUNDS BE 
OBLIGATED WHEN ORDERS ARE ISSUED WILL ONLY ALLOW US TO ISSUE 
APPROXIMATELY 20 PERCENT OF ORDERS FOR THOSE WITH A PROJECTED ROTATION 
DATE (PRD) IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF FY10.  ONCE WE RECEIVE FISCAL YEAR 
2010 FUNDS, WE WILL RELEASE THE REMAINING FIRST QUARTER ORDERS IN EARLY 
OCTOBER 2009.
2.  WE REMAIN COMMITTED TO PROVIDING SAILORS WITH AS MUCH INFORMATION 
AND LEAD TIME AS POSSIBLE.  THIS TIMING WILL RESULT IN COMPRESSED PCS 
TIMELINES FOR SOME SAILORS AND THEIR FAMILIES WITH PRD IN OCT-DEC 2009. 
3.  WORKING IN CLOSE COORDINATION WITH ENTERPRISE MANPOWER AUTHORITIES, 
PERS-4 WILL CONTINUE TO UTILIZE THE SAME PRIORITIZATION STRATEGIES USED 
DURING THE PREVIOUS TEMPORARY PCS HOLD TO MINIMIZE IMPACTS TO FLEET 
READINESS, CAREER TIMING, AND FAMILIES.  EMPHASIS REMAINS ON GLOBAL 
SUPPORT ASSIGNMENT ROTATIONS, CAREER MILESTONE BILLETS AND CRITICAL 
READINESS FILLS, MINIMIZING GAPS AT SEA FOR DEPLOYED UNITS AND THOSE 
WORKING UP TO DEPLOY, AND KEEPING THE TRAINING PIPELINES MOVING.  
SAILORS IN THE PROCESS OF ORDERS NEGOTIATION, THOSE WITH A PRD IN FIRST 
QUARTER FY10, OR THOSE WHO OTHERWISE WILL BE AFFECTED BY THIS SHORTFALL 
SHOULD CONTACT THEIR DETAILER DIRECTLY TO DISCUSS THEIR SPECIFIC 
SITUATION.
4.  THANK YOU FOR PATIENCE AS WE MOVE FORWARD ON THIS IMPORTANT AND 
CHALLENGING EFFORT TO MANAGE OUR PCS ACCOUNTS. 
5.  GENERAL QUESTIONS SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO 1-866-U-ASK-NPC (1-866-827-
5672).  DETAILERS ARE STANDING BY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS SPECIFIC TO EACH 
SAILOR'S SITUATION.
