SUBJ/PERFORM TO SERVE (PTS) UPDATE AND ZONE B IMPLEMENTATION
PROCEDURES//
RMKS/1. THIS NAVADMIN DESCRIBES PROCEDURES FOR IMPLEMENTING ZONE B PTS,
THE REQUIREMENT TO DOCUMENT THE SAILOR'S PTS INTENTIONS USING THE NAVY
STANDARD INTEGRATED PERSONNEL SYSTEM (NSIPS), AND ENHANCEMENTS TO THE
PTS PROCESS. THE PERFORM TO SERVE PROGRAM IS A VITAL PART OF OUR
NAVY'S TOTAL FORCE STRATEGY, PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP OUR BEST
AND BRIGHTEST SAILORS IN ORDER TO MEET FUTURE FLEET AND RATING NEEDS.
CURRENTLY, THERE ARE MORE SAILORS THAN REQUIRED IN CERTAIN RATINGS.
THESE CONDITIONS SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT CAREER PROGRESSION AND
ADVANCEMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR SAILORS IN OVERMANNED RATINGS AND HAVE A
NEGATIVE IMPACT ON MISSION READINESS AND FLEET CAPABILITIES WHEN A
RATING LACKS THE APPROPRIATE INVENTORY. BEGINNING
1 FEBRUARY 2009, PERFORM TO SERVE WILL BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE SAILORS
IN BOTH ZONE A AND ZONE B. SAILORS GIVEN AN IN RATE REENLISTMENT OR
CONVERT QUOTA WILL BE REQUIRED TO SIGN A PAGE 13, WHICH OUTLINES
REENLISTMENT INTENTIONS TO ACCEPT AN IN
RATE QUOTA OR ACCEPT A RATE CONVERSION.
2. QUOTA RESERVATION
A. BEGINNING 1 FEBRUARY 2009, RESERVATION QUOTAS GRANTED FOR AN
IN-RATE REENLISTMENT OR CONVERSION TO ANOTHER RATING REQUIRE A SIGNED
PAGE 13 IN NSIPS, WITHIN 30 DAYS OF MESSAGE RECEIPT, STATING A
COMMITMENT OF INTENT TO REMAIN ON ACTIVE DUTY. RESERVATIONS WILL BE
REMOVED 60 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF MESSAGE IF A PAGE 13 IS NOT RECORDED.
THOSE SAILORS WHO CURRENTLY HAVE A PTS APPROVED QUOTA IN ZONE A WILL BE
REQUIRED TO SIGN A PAGE 13 NO LATER THAN 30 DAYS FROM THE RELEASE OF
THIS MESSAGE IN ORDER TO RETAIN THEIR QUOTA. QUOTAS WILL BE REMOVED
FROM THE SYSTEM FOR THOSE SAILORS WHO DO NOT HAVE A PAGE 13 RECORDED BY
1 APRIL 2009. THE PROCEDURES FOR ENTERING AND VERIFYING A PAGE 13 CAN
BE FOUND ON THE NPC WEBSITE
(http://WWW.NPC.NAVY.MIL/CAREERINFO/STAYNAVYTOOLS/CIMS/). PSD/CSD/PAPA DET,
ALONG WITH COMMAND CAREER COUNSELORS, WILL ENSURE THE PAGE 13 IS
DOCUMENTED IN NSIPS, INCLUDING FINAL VERIFICATION. THE PAGE 13 IS PRE-
LOADED IN NSIPS UNDER THE TITLE PTS INTENTION. COMMANDS SERVICED BY
PAPA DET WILL COMPLETE PAGE 13 REQUIREMENTS VIA TRANSACTION ONLINE
PROCESSING SYSTEM (TOPS). FINAL VERIFICATION OF THE PAGE 13 LIES WITH
THE PERSONNEL SUPERVISOR AT THE PSD/CSD/PAPA DET OR AFLOAT PERSONNEL
DEPARTMENT. IN SPECIAL CASES WHERE NSIPS IS NOT AVAILABLE, COMMANDS
ARE DIRECTED TO SUBMIT A COPY OF THE PAGE 13 TO NAVY PERSONNEL COMMAND
CUSTOMER SERVICE CENTER VIA FAX AT (901) 874-2116 OR EMAIL AT
CSCMAILBOX(AT)NAVY.MIL. THE PTS PAGE 13 TEMPLATE IS AVAILABLE ON THE
NPC WEBSITE AT http://WWW.NPC.NAVY.MIL/CAREERINFO/PERFORMTOSERVE/.

B. ONE OF THE FOLLOWING NOTES MUST BE ADDED TO THE PAGE 13 AS
APPLICABLE:
(1) I ACCEPT THE RESERVATION QUOTA FOR IN-RATE REENLISTMENT AND
WILL ACQUIRE THE REQUIRED OBLISERVE PRIOR TO MY EAOS.
(2) I ACCEPT THE RESERVATION QUOTA FOR CONVERSION TO APPROVED
RATING AND WILL ACQUIRE THE REQUIRED OBLISERVE PRIOR
TO MY EAOS.
3. ZONE B PTS:
A. ZONE B PTS WILL BE IMPLEMENTED BEGINNING 1 FEBRUARY 2009.
B. A ZONE B SAILOR IS A SAILOR WHO HAS MORE THAN SIX, BUT LESS
THAN OR EQUAL TO TEN YEARS OF SERVICE.
C. ALL E-4 TO E-6 SAILORS WITH AN EAOS OR PRD ON OR AFTER
1 OCTOBER 2009 AND WHO WILL BE IN ZONE B LIMITS ON THE DATE OF THEIR
EAOS OR PRD, ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT A PTS APPLICATION,
REGARDLESS OF THEIR REENLISTMENT INTENTIONS.
D. SAILORS MUST HAVE AN APPROVED ZONE B PTS RESERVATION PRIOR TO
REENLISTING, EXTENDING THEIR EAOS, OR NEGOTIATING ORDERS IF THEIR EAOS
OR PRD MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS IN PARAGRAPH C.
E. ZONE B PTS WILL FOLLOW THE SAME BASIC PROCESSING GUIDELINES AND
PROCEDURES AS ZONE A PTS.
F. SAILORS IN PAYGRADE E-6 THAT HAVE BEEN SELECTED OR FROCKED TO
E-7 ARE EXEMPT FROM ZONE B PTS.
G. PERSONNEL ALREADY UNDER PCS ORDERS, PERSONNEL WITH AN APPROVED
CONVERSION PACKAGE, OR PERSONNEL WITH AN APPROVED SRB PRECERT AT THE
TIME OF THE RELEASE OF THIS NAVADMIN ARE NOT AFFECTED.
H. SUBMISSION AND PROCESSING
(1) DEADLINE FOR INITIAL APPLICATIONS FOR ZONE B SAILORS IS
27 FEBRUARY 2009. THEREAFTER, THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE WILL BE THE LAST
FRIDAY OF EACH MONTH. REQUESTS RECEIVED AFTER THE DEADLINE WILL BE
PROCESSED THE FOLLOWING MONTH.
(2) THE PRIMARY METHOD OF SUBMISSION WILL BE WEB BASED USING
THE PTS HOMEPAGE LINK ON THE NAVY PERSONNEL COMMAND (NPC) WEBSITE,
HTTP://WWW.NPC.NAVY.MIL/CAREERINFO/PERFORMTOSERVE/, THEN CLICKING ON
PTS HOMEPAGE. AN ALTERNATIVE METHOD FOR COMMAND SUBMISSION IF WEB
ACCESS IS NOT AVAILABLE WILL BE TO SUBMIT THE PTS SPREADSHEET
(DOWNLOADABLE FROM THE NPC WEBSITE) USING ENCRYPTED PASSWORD PROTECTED
EMAIL TO CSCMAILBOX(AT)NAVY.MIL. INCLUDE IN THE SUBJ
LINE: PTS APPLICATIONS FOR UIC XXXXX. ZONE B PTS CONVERSION
APPLICATIONS WILL ONLY BE PROCESSED BY THE PTS WEB SERVICE OR PTS
SPREADSHEET SUBMISSION METHODS. FLEET RATING IDENTIFICATION ENGINE
(FLEET RIDE) WILL NOT HAVE THE CAPABILITY OF PROCESSING ZONE B PTS
CONVERSION REQUEST APPLICATIONS UNTIL THIRD QUARTER FY-09.
(3) COMMANDS ARE ENCOURAGED TO UPDATE AN INDIVIDUAL'S PTS
REQUEST IF ANY OF THE FOLLOWING CHANGES OCCUR: PAY GRADE, EVALUATION
PERFORMANCE, THE SAILOR'S CONVERSION DESIRES, OR THE SAILOR'S
CONVERSION CHOICES. COMMANDS MAY CANCEL OR UPDATE PTS REQUESTS USING
ONLINE WEB APPLICATIONS OR E-MAIL.
(4) MONTHLY CONVERSION QUOTAS WILL BE PROVIDED ON THE NPC
WEBSITE.
4. PTS ENHANCEMENTS AND UPDATES
A. ENHANCEMENTS
(1) MAY-SEPTEMBER 2008 - PTS APPLICATIONS (ZONE A ONLY) WERE
INTERFACED WITH FLEET RIDE, GIVING COMMAND CAREER COUNSELORS THE
ABILITY TO SUBMIT BOTH USN ACTIVE COMPONENT (AC) AND FULL TIME SUPPORT
(FTS) APPLICATIONS USING THE FLEET RIDE WEB SERVICE.
THE ABILITY TO USE FLEET RIDE'S CLASSIFICATION ENGINE REDUCED THE
AMOUNT OF CONVERSION ERRORS AND GAVE COMMAND CAREER COUNSELORS THE
ABILITY TO TRACK EACH SAILOR'S APPLICATION STATUS.
(2) DECEMBER 2008 - THE STACKING ALGORITHM WAS MODIFIED TO
PLACE MORE EMPHASIS ON RETAINING CRITICAL SKILL SETS AND PERFORMANCE.
B. EFFECTIVE 1 FEBRUARY 2009, IF A SAILOR ANSWERS "NO" ON THE PTS
APPLICATION TO THE QUESTION "DOES MEMBER DESIRE TO REENLIST?", THAT
SAILOR WILL AUTOMATICALLY RECEIVE A ROLLOVER STATUS AND CONTINUE TO
RECEIVE THE ROLLOVER STATUS UNTIL THEY ARE SIX MONTHS FROM THEIR EAOS.
AT THAT POINT, THE SAILOR WILL RECEIVE A MESSAGE TO START THE
TRANSITION PROCESS. IF A SAILOR'S INTENTION CHANGES WHILE IN THE PTS
WINDOW, THE APPLICATION CAN BE MODIFIED TO REFLECT
THE DESIRE TO REENLIST AND WILL BE PROCESSED NORMALLY.
C. EXTENSIONS AND GENDET REAPPLY
(1) CO'S AUTHORITY TO GRANT A TWO-MONTH EXTENSION WHILE
AWAITING PTS RESULTS OR FOR THE TRANSITION PROCESS IS NO LONGER
AUTHORIZED.
(2) EXTENSIONS THAT WOULD TAKE A SAILOR PAST ZONE A CAN ONLY BE
GRANTED WITH ZONE A PTS APPROVAL AND MUST BE IAW MILPERMAN 1160-040.
(3) GENDET REAPPLY OPTION HAS BEEN ELIMINATED.
D. FUTURE CHANGES
(1) THIRD QUARTER FY-09 - PTS WILL BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE A
SELECTED RESERVE OPTION. THIS FUNCTION WILL ALLOW AN ACTIVE COMPONENT
(AC) SAILOR TO SIMULTANEOUSLY APPLY FOR BOTH AC AND RC OPPORTUNITIES.
AN AC SAILOR WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE THE OPTION OF CHOOSING THE ACTIVE OR
RESERVE COMPONENT EVEN AFTER AN IN-RATE DETERMINATION IS MADE.
5. NAVY PERSONNEL CAN CALL 1-866-U-ASK-NPC OR (866) 827-5672, OR EMAIL
THE NAVY PERSONNEL COMMAND'S CALL CENTER IN MILLINGTON AT
CSCMAILBOX(AT)NAVY.MIL WITH QUESTIONS CONCERNING THIS POLICY UPDATE AND
NEW PTS IMPLEMENTATION PROCEDURES. THIS CALL CENTER WILL BE MANNED
MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, 7 A.M. TO 7 P.M., CENTRAL
STANDARD TIME.

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated.

I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man."
