1 IDPL Selection Boards PSC-rpm-1

2 Agenda Terminology Break down of Zones Timeline How It Really Works! Examples of Board Decisions How to prepare for the Board 5/29/

3 General Terminology A Selection Board is a group of senior officers that selects officers of a junior rank to the next senior rank (i.e., LTJG to LT); is the only way for an officer to be promoted. It creates a Selection List that is used by the Promotion Process. Promotion – When a officer actually puts on the next rank. IDPL Officer promotions are dictated by the Running Mate System.(Please watch the Running Mates Presentation on our website) Opportunity of Selection (OOS) – Percentage of In Zone- candidates to select for promotion (72% means of 100 candidates 72 shall be selected) 5/29/

4 Selection Terminology Selected – Youre on the Selection List, but you havent promoted to the next rank yet. Passed Over – Not being selected for promotion to the next rank (only if you were In Zone) Deep Selection – When a Below Zone member is selected for promotion. It is used to reward exceptional officers not yet in zone. In Zone Reordering – This is used only on the ADPL, so it wont be covered here

5 List Terminology Inactive Duty Promotion List (IDPL) – All Reserve Officers in an Active Status (SELRES, IRR, and ASL). Officers in the ISL and retired officers do not compete for promotion. ADSW, Title 10, and Title 14 are Short Term Active Duty Orders, so you stay on the IDPL, even when on Active Duty. The only way to compete on the ADPL is to be on EAD The only way to integrate is be selected off a best qualified ADPL board. The Register of Reserve Officers is a lineal list of Reserve Officers in precedence order; it is the source document for all IDPL Selection Boards. Also lists ISL and retired officers. For most discussions, the Reserve Register and the IDPL are synonymous. 5/29/

6 Zone Terminology Below Zone – You are legally senior enough to be looked at for Selection to the next rank, but needs of the service dont require looking at you yet (applies to LCDR and above Selection Boards). In Zone – You are in the group looked at for Selection to the next rank. Above Zone – You are more senior than the In Zone group, probably because you were passed over for Selection previously (more of an ADPL issue) 5/29/

7 Register of Reserve Officers Seniority, Precedence Serves as the source document for Selection Boards Published snapshot on 1JAN each year Constantly updated at PSC to account for Accessions, Promotions, and Separations ADPL Officers (including Reserve on EAD) are in a different book Below Zone (1) Selected, Not Yet Promoted (2) Above Zone Too Junior for Consideration In Zone 5/29/

8 Movements to/from the IDPL Below Zone Too Junior for Consideration In Zone Entering IDPLLeaving IDPL ROCI Graduates Regular to Reserve EAD RELAD Returns from ISL Starting EAD Resignation Retirement Transfer to ISL SELRES, IRR, and ASL 5/29/ (1) Selected, Not Yet Promoted (2) Above Zone

9 The Selection Timeline Annual OER Message - February Annual Kick Off Message for all Boards – May Candidate Message – T-30 days Board Convenes Selection Message (4 to 6 weeks later) You should review your record from PSC-psd-mr three months before your board 5/29/

10 OER Submissions Message Released in January or February ALCGOFF 008/09 (29JAN09) First indication to the field who will be in zone; it is generally conservative (more people rather than less) This is done first because OERs are critical to the Selection Process 5/29/

11 Boards Announcement Message Usually released in May or June ALCGRSV 024/09 – (3JUN09) Second indication to the field who will be in zone Tells you when the Boards are convening Tells you the Zone Size and OOS for each board 5/29/

12 Candidate Announcement Released at least 30 days before the Board ALCGRSV (LCDR Message came out yesterday) Lists all In-Zone candidates by Name in alphabetical order Contact us immediately if you think there is a problem (your name isnt on the list)! 5/29/

13 Selection Results Message Generally released 6 weeks after convening ALCGPSC Selectees listed in precedence order All non-selected officers are contacted prior to the release of the message 5/29/

14 Basic Rules of the Selection Boards Only look at members: –Of a particular Rank –Not already selected Closed process that Board Members and PSC staff swear an oath of secrecy about Board deliberations. Makes only one decision: Select or Not Select –IDPL Board do not In Zone Reorder. 5/29/

15 What is OOS? Percentage of In Zone- candidates to select for promotion There is no Above Zone for IDPL boards OOS calculations; this is the biggest difference between IDPL and ADPL boards! This means that the OOS for IDPL boards is the true percentage of officers able to be selected, while the ADPLs true percentage is more complicated and lower than the stated OOS. –Stated OOS for PY09 IDPL LCDR 71% which matches 64 of 90 people –Stated OOS for PY09 ADPL LCDR 89%, but 342 of 448 people were selected for an Actual OOS of 76%! The OOS is dependent on Needs of the Service; the ADPL and IDPL OOS do not have to be the same! 5/29/

16 How it Really Works Board Members see Above and In Zone candidates, but the candidates are not identified as Above or In Zone! (Candidates Precedence is not shown) Board Members see Below Zone candidates only if they desire. All candidates selected for promotion will be on the Selection Message; we do not publish who was not selected. In general, officers who have been selected never have to re-compete for selection a second time. Removal from the Promotion List is a significant event and you will know it when it happens. 5/29/

17 WHAT BOARDS CONSIDER (PERSMAN 14.A.3 and M1410.2) Performance Professionalism Leadership Education Official Transcripts and CG-4082 Communications to the Board Reserve Officer Resumes Commandants Guidance COMDTs Guidance for PY 10 Board Precept Memo to Board President describing ground rules OER Permanently in your record Kept only for the Board 5/29/

18 What the Board Sees 5/29/ OERs Awards Record of Prov. Dev. Page 7s

19 How do you get Selected? Performance, performance, performance…Make every day count! Review your record at least 90 days before the Selection Board to catch any errors and omissions. Go to for your Ensure your Point Statement is correct and up to date, work with your SPO! RPM strongly encourages every member to submit a Communications to the Board, Reserve Officer Resume, and CG-4082 –Samples are kept on our website at 5/29/

20 If Selected Youll be notified by the Selection Message –DO NOT CALL US BEFORE THE MESSAGE COMES OUT, WE CAN NOT GIVE RESULTS OUT BEORE THE MESSAGE IS RELEASED. Watch the Running Mate presentation on our website to better understand the promotion process Watch the monthly Officer Promotion Authorization List (OPAL) message to see when you will be promoted 5/29/

21 Impact of Non-Selection Non-Selected/Passed Over officers will be contacted by their Chains of Command prior to the release of the message. You will receive a letter from PSC-rpm explaining your specific situation (one of the below). Any member with one pass over will be given a second chance to compete for selection the next year. Anyone with 18 to 20 years of good years by 30JUN of the next year will automatically be retained so they can earn their retirement and will compete again for selection. Members with two passovers may be looked at for retention based on predetermined needs of the service. Members with two passovers, not retained, will be removed from an active status by 30JUN of the next year. 5/29/

22 Take Aways Your career is your own! Nobody cares about you as much as you do. The Board process is based exclusively on matters of record: If its not in your record, it didnt happen. Go to for your In almost all respects, this process is the same as the process for Active Duty officers. This process is the fairest one imaginable to promote the best officers in the USCGR. This presentation will be stored with narration at 5/29/
