SUBJ/EFFECT OF FY-11 CONTINUING RESOLUTION (CR) ON PERMANENT CHANGE OF STATION ORDERS (PCS)//
RMKS/

1.  THIS NAVADMIN PROVIDES AN UPDATE ON PERMANENT CHANGE OF STATION (PCS) EXECUTION
UNDER THE FY-11 CONTINUING RESOLUTION (CR).  DUE TO THE ALLOCATION OF RESOURCES UNDER A CR,
NPC HAS RECEIVED LESS FUNDING THAN REQUIRED BY OUR OPERATIONS PLAN AND IS CURRENTLY RELEASING
PRIORITY ORDERS FOR MEMBERS WITH DETACHMENT DATES BETWEEN FEBRUARY AND MAY 2011.  SAILORS
DETACHING IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS WHO HAVE NOT YET RECEIVED ORDERS WILL LIKELY HAVE LESS
THAN TWO MONTHS LEAD TIME WHEN THEIR ORDERS ARE RELEASED.

2.  WORKING IN CLOSE COORDINATION WITH ENTERPRISE MANPOWER AUTHORITIES, PERS-4 WILL USE A
PRIORITIZATION STRATEGY TO MINIMIZE IMPACTS TO FLEET READINESS, CAREER TIMING, AND FAMILIES.
EMPHASIS REMAINS ON GLOBAL SUPPORT ASSIGNMENT ROTATIONS, CAREER MILESTONE BILLETS, CRITICAL
READINESS FILLS, MINIMIZING GAPS AT SEA FOR DEPLOYED UNITS AND THOSE WORKING UP TO DEPLOY,
AND MOVING NEW ACCESSIONS THROUGH TRAINING PIPELINES.

3.  WE FULLY REALIZE THE IMPACT OF THIS UNCERTAINTY ON OUR FAMILIES.  WE REMAIN COMMITTED
TO PROVIDING SAILORS WITH AS MUCH INFORMATION AND LEAD TIME AS POSSIBLE.  OUR CURRENT
FISCAL CHALLENGES WILL RESULT IN COMPRESSED PCS TIMELINES FOR MOST SAILORS WITH PROJECTED
ROTATION DATES DURING SUMMER AND FALL 2011.

4.  WHILE WE ENCOURAGE ALL SAILORS WITH PROJECTED ROTATION DATES DURING THIS FISCAL YEAR
TO CONTACT THEIR DETAILERS, THERE MAY BE A DELAY IN DETAILER RESPONSES AS WE WORK THROUGH
INDIVIDUAL ISSUES.  PLEASE FIRST REFER TO THE PCS ‘FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS’ ON THE NPC
WEBSITE HTTP://WWW.NPC.NAVY.MIL OR CONTACT THE NPC CALL CENTER AT 1-866-U-ASK-NPC (1-866-827-5672).

5.  RELEASED BY VADM MARK FERGUSON, N1.//
