Refer to rate specific SITREPS for additional guidance and deadlines. No “first come-first serve” benefits of submitting e-resumes early.

6 How Assignments Are Made
UNIT MEMBER Optimal balance b/w Service, Unit and Member needs. Service Need: Prioritize mission critical positions Ensure return on transfer & training investment Maintain effective assignment & advancement process Attract/develop/retain/deploy diverse, qualified workforce Mission execution Unit Needs: Member Needs: SERVICE

7 How Assignments Are Made
Unit . . . Command Concerns PAL Discrepancies RELADs Retirements CRSP/IR Selections Medical/Discipline Issues Fleet-Ups Specific qual/skill needs Command Endorsements BOTTOM LINE: MISSION IS TOP PRIORTIY IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER Needs of the service takes precedence Factors vary by rating 7

8 How Assignments Are Made
Member . . . Desires/e-Resume: collocation, Special Needs, geographic area, short/long-term goals, extensions Assignment History & Qualifications Advancement Requirements Performance/Evaluations Assignment Priority You do NOT need to submit an e-resume when reporting to a new unit. Your input to the process is primarily the e-resume. Keys to a successful e-resume: Do not recite your selections. Just because you don’t list it doesn’t mean you won’t be considered Align the e-resume with your long term goals

9 How Assignments Are Made
Service Need . . . Prioritize Mission Critical Positions Return on Investment (Transfer & Training) Maintain Effective Assignment & Advancement Process Develop & Retain a Diverse & Qualified Workforce Mission Execution BOTTOM LINE: MISSION IS TOP PRIORTIY Needs of the service takes precedence Factors vary by rating 9

10 Assignment Factors Service Need Member desires Assignment policies
Assignment priority Command concerns Time in geographic area Time at current unit CO’s recommendation Sea to shore ratio Advancement status Performance Willingness to obligate Competencies Physical condition Security clearance Service Need IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER Needs of the service takes precedence Factors vary by rating We promote to vacancies ALCGPSC 164/12, released on 11DEC2012, includes travel cost as a component of Service Need. This means that Assignment Officers “may consider limiting an assignment within the same geographic region, where it makes good business sense, in an effort to keep PCS travel costs below the established ceiling.” This is not a guarantee that you will stay in the same area.

12 Assignment Policy on Advancement Article 1. C
Assignment Policy on Advancement Article 1.C.3 – Military Assignments & Authorized Absences, M1000.8 The Coast Guard advances to vacancies Service Need may require transfer prior to tour completion Members shall submit an e-Resume within 30 days of his or her name appearing above the cutoff on the advancement eligibility list Assignment Policy on Advancement “Every effort will be made to minimize the number of transfers upon advancement, but personnel should not compete for advancement unless they are prepared to be transferred to fill any authorized vacant position in the next higher pay grade.” Assignment Officer Priorities for Assignments AOs will fill vacant positions with a member in the identified pay grade, when available within other Service needs. If there are no tour complete members in the pay grade available for transfer to fill a vacant position, the AO will use the following ordered priority: 1. Members on current advancement eligibility list above the cutoff. 2. Members in the identified pay grade who are tour complete within the next assignment season or year. 3. Using SEAP or POAP: a. Members qualified for the next higher pay grade SWE. b. Members with a favorable commanding officer's written endorsement.

13 Creating a Realistic e-Resume
CONSIDER Professional growth opportunities Sea duty Career diversity (e.g. geographic region, unit/platform/job type) Qualifications needed for professional development Your assignment priority Your Evaluations Your Past Assignments The sea/shore ratio for your rating If your AO notifies you that you are a sea duty candidate, pick your sea duty before it picks you. COMMENTS BLOCK Personal/professional objectives and desires. Number of Choices: The more choices you request, the less likely you will received the “Needs of the Service”, but make sure to list jobs you really want to get orders to. Quality Of Life: Special Needs, Affordable Housing, Educational Opportunities, Spouse Employment Opportunities No need to list career summary, awards, and competencies in the comments of your e-resume From 01 May thru 30 Aug is a great time to call your AO for career counseling and to discuss your E-Resume

14 Creating a Realistic e-Resume
Comments Section I have reviewed the Command Checklist for Overseas Screening, the Financial Assessment Checklist and the Dependent Overseas Screening in Article 1.H. of COMDTINST M1000.8, and have verified that I meet the criteria for overseas assignment. My number one desire is to be stationed in Alaska, so the first five billets are based on geographical preference. My second desire is to get an ATON assignment. So my next grouping of billets is by job type. I have ATON cutters listed first for career building and advancement requirements and would prefer going back afloat. I listed ATON ashore and other shore units last. Billet Picks 1 - 5 Alaska Billets Buoy Tenders ANTS 24 – 30 Stations 31 – 60 Sectors, Stations, Large Cutters Members may desire geographic area, platform type, collocation, position type, etc, in whatever order. This example highlights geographic preference and platform type preference. Also note members might list collocation and special needs. They should verify that their special needs can be met in the areas of their choice.

15 Additional Information
Collocation DECOMs & Homeport Shifts Geographic Stability Home Ownership Non-Rate Assignments Overseas Assignments Obligated Service PATFORSWA Retirement SILO/RILO Special Assignments Special Needs Women Afloat The following topics should be discussed at every roadshow presentation: PATFORSWA Women Afloat Special Assignments Overseas Assignments Co-location Obligated Service

16 Collocation Contact AOs early in assignment season
Article 1.A.7., COMDTINST M1000.8 Contact AOs early in assignment season Tour lengths may be adjusted to effect transfers – Review the Manual! Married Couples: Won’t be assigned to same ship, restricted unit, or unit with < 60 members With Dependents will not normally be assigned to shipboard duty simultaneously Needs of Service may preclude ability to collocate members. Clarify your collocation desires in Member’s Comments Geographically align e-Resume selections with spouse ** If you desire collocation with a member that is in another service, provide the contact information of your spouse’s Assignment Officer. You must consider the Assignment Priority of both members when crafting your e-resume. Both members do not transfer at the higher assignment priority. Communication is key. First between the spouses, ensuring that your e-resumes match. Then contact both of your Assignment Officers to inform them you are a COLO. Choosing units w/in larger metro areas will increase chances of successful COLO Couples who marry midtour, colo next assignment cycle DA isn’t always accurate about your marital status, so assume the AO doesn’t know. There isn’t anything in DA that tells the AO that you are a COLO. Ensure DA reflects that the spouse is in the service.

17 DECOMs & Homeport Shifts
FY13 Homeport Shifts/Decoms CGC SAILFISH– Highlands, NJ to Bayonne, NJ as a result of Hurricane Sandy CGC BAINBRIDGE ISLAND – Highlands, NJ to Bayonne, NJ as a result of of Hurricane Sandy CGC JARVIS – Honolulu, HI; Decommissioned CGC MORGENTHAU -- Alameda, CA to Honolulu, HI CGC DIAMONDBACK – Miami, FL to Atlantic Beach (Mayport), FL CGC MORRO BAY – New London, CT to Cleveland, OH CGC DRUMMOND – Miami, FL to San Juan, PR (pending) CGC CHINCOTEAGUE – San Juan, PR; Decommissioned (pending) FY14 Homeport Shifts (Pending) Nothing official at this point. Potential for 1 or 2 WPB110 relocations in AY14. CGC DEPENDABLE and CGC VIGOROUS possible homeport shift from Cape May, NJ to Little Creek, VA

18 DECOMs & Homeport Shifts
AY14 Proposed DECOMs (Pending approval) Nothing official at this point. Possibility for 1 or more HECs and multiple 110’ WPBs Potential for 300+ additional Priority 2 and/or 3 members to be tour complete in AY14 due to multiple DECOMs. Shopping list will display any AY14 vacancies in their current homeport until the shift is officially approved and the positions are reprogrammed. Members will not be given Priority upgrades due to decom/homeport shift. Contact AO for guidance.

19 Geographic Stability Article 1.B.3. – COMDTINST M1000.8
Members need mentorship on realistic expectations EPM considers you to have achieved geographic stability after 2 tours in one area Roots grow deeper with each successive tour & more traumatic to move family No member should try or expect to remain in one geographic area for their entire career Achieving Geographic Stability Geographic stability can be achieved by the following: 1. Completing full tours of duty. 2. Granting extensions liberally. 3. Providing local stability. Completing two tours of duty (not necessarily at same unit) in a local area without effecting a household goods move. 4. Providing regional stability. Completing two tours of duty within a geographical region minimizing family and Coast Guard PCS transfer costs and family and personal disruption.

20 Home Ownership Home Ownership is not an assignment factor
Large percentage of CG members own homes and may face financial hardship if relocated Purchasing a home is an investment risk All CG members must be available for unrestricted worldwide assignment

21 Non-Rate Assignments Assignments Factors: Needs of the Service
Non-Rate Assignment Supervisor YNCS Allen Monreau Districts 1/5 OS1 Jason Stanley Districts 7/8/9 YN1 Jennifer Bell Districts 11/13/14/17 FS1 Christopher Walker Airman Program ASTC Sam Ariola “A” School Assignments DC/ET/GM/IS/IT/MK/MST/OS/SK ET1 Jose Sandoval BM/EM/FS/HS/ME/PA/YN/YN-DL YN3 Joseph Riollano Assignments Factors: Needs of the Service Desires of the Member Qualifications Special Needs Critical A-School Collocation Dependents Special Assignments PATFORSWA Tour Complete: Non-Rates are not normally transferred out of their current District until assigned to A School (for example, if a SN is tour complete on board a Miami PB, he/she may receive orders to STA Miami or STA Fort Lauderdale). Non-Rates that are tour complete will be directed by someone in their command to submit an E-Resume when necessary. Critical A Schools: currently FS, OS, GM and ET are listed as critical. The four months requirement to resubmit a request for the A School Waiting List is waiver for these rates. Special Assignments: Honor Guard, CGC EAGLE Qualifications for a Non-Rate: citizenship for PB’s, weapons quals, linguist skills, etc. PATFORSWA: solicitation message released twice a year; if you successfully serve a full year tour, you can put your name on any A School list and go to the top (others may have done the same so you will be behind them at the top) or get your first pick of available assignments

22 Overseas Assignments Article 1.H. – COMDTINST M1000.8 Members must ensure they will screen successfully before listing overseas positions on e-Resumes State in e-Resume comments that you have reviewed the Manual and meet Overseas screening requirements Command endorsements shall address member’s suitability for overseas assignment Commands must complete overseas screening within 10 Days of issuance of orders Per 1.H., COMDTINST M1000.8, members may request 1-year tour increase. Requests must be submitted to EPM-2 along with an notification to the appropriate AO: Prior to reporting to overseas unit, or Within 12 months of reporting to overseas assignment Tour length increases are not “extensions” If you are going from one overseas assignment to another, you must screen again. If considering OCONUS, advise members to conduct pre-screening and review screening requirements for dependents.

23 Article 1.B.6., COMDTINST M1000.8 & ALCGENL 051/10
Obligated Service Article 1.B.6., COMDTINST M & ALCGENL 051/10 Must obligate service (OBLISERV) within 5 business days after receipt of orders. Amount of required OBLISERV noted on PCS orders. < 6 years active duty INCONUS; OBLISERV full tour > 6 years active duty INCONUS; OBLISERV 1 year OUTCONUS/Special Assignments; OBLISERV full tour Commands must advise CG PSC-epm-1 via message if members refuse to OBLISERV. Failure to OBLISERV may result in discharge within 30 days Special Duty Assignments including any “Special Assignments” require obligated service for a full tour. This includes all Instructor duty positions, all training team, recruit company commander, honor guard, CMC, STAN team, National Strike Force Why does the COAST GUARD require members to OBLISERV? For return on training and transfer investment. No unit wants to expend, time, money and effort to fully train you only to have you leave 1 year later. Assignment Officers may waive obliserv requirement for Service Needs 4 OBLISERV Options If and when a member refuses to obligate service EPM 1 & 2 coordinates one of the 3 outcomes based on service need upon receipt of command CGMS notifying us of refusal to obligate service for PCS transfer: -1 No service need, member is processed for Convenience of the Government discharge 12.B.12.a.7 (important note here is if a member received any bonus it will be recouped as this is classified as a "voluntary" separation because the member voluntarily choose not to obligate service). -2 Service need, member's separation is established for 1 July 2014 to coincide with slated replacement and prevent gap at unit. -3 Service need, member is allowed to remain on active duty to End-of-Enlistment (EOE), separation orders issued for EOE, preventing extension or reenlistment without EPM-1 approval. -4 Service need, member must execute orders Once the CGMS is received it usually takes EPM 7 working days to complete the panel process for Refuse to Obligate (RTO). A units request to advocate for retention may be added but service need is the center point in the decision process.

- portal 116 Afloat – includes Cutter Support Team Five BM/ME Middle East Training Team (METT): Deployed to certify Level II non-compliant Boarding Teams in CG & foreign military throughout region. Requires LE experience at TACLET, MSST DSF, or MSRT; plus Instructor endorsement. 12 E-5 thru E-9 Redeployment Assistance & Inspection Detachment (RAID): Team MST/MK/DC/EM/ET/Special Assignment POCM deployed throughout Mid East. Priority 2 Positions: 73 enlisted ashore positions BENEFITS: Priority 1 (afloat) or 2 (ashore) 15 days of R&R Additional pay Tax exemptions ASSIGNMENT CRITERIA: Overseas Screening Secret Clearance BTM Physical Fitness test w/in past 6 months Meets COMDT’s Weight Standards Command Endorsement for PATFORSWA NEW ASSIGNMENT PRIORITIES THIS YEAR: METT, RAID, and 7th Crew personnel all Priority 1. ASSIGNMENT CRITERIA THIS YEAR: Now have specific Command Endorsement, Weight Standard and BTM/Boat Crew Physical Fitness Stds. Too many people were not meeting fitness and LE standards at 8 week Pre-deployment. Many offseason backfills requirements due to discipline/alcohol. Minimized weapons qual requirements to Basic Pistol and Rifle, with understanding that mbrs can obtain Practical at PDT. Middle East Training Team Positions Instructor positions for providing specialized LE training to all the cutters in theater and certifying their Level II Non-Compliant Boarding Teams. Regularly augment other teams and assets in theater and perform boardings in the Gulf, train foreign military units throughout the region and conduct special demonstrations for visiting VIP's. Positions: MEC , BM1, BM2, BM2, ME3 PDT includes highly demanding train the trainer program in addition to regular pre-deployment training.  They learn how to teach Close Quarters Battle, Container Climbing and Breaching along with other specialized skills.  Personnel assigned must be highly motivated, able to work on their own and extremely professional. We are looking for applicants who will be confident when training other Coasties and other international law enforcement and military units.  Also, applicants with extensive LE experience, especially at an MSRT, TACLET or MSST DSF, are most desired.  Great opportunity for those who are interested in the law enforcement community, or who are looking to boost their LE experience prior to applying for the ME rating.  Designated as Instructor; require Instructor assignment criteria as per Chapter 4.E of the PERSMAN.  RAID Mission Summary (unofficial): RAID members are Army unit movement officers that ensure proper shipping regulations are followed by Army, Marines, and coalition forces. They advise/assist on proper labeling, construction and seaworthiness of containers to ensure they meet Customs laws. These CG members also inspect bags and attire of personnel departing AOR to ensure they meet Customs requirements. They also enforce Department of Agriculture Laws to ensure no insects, dirt, vegetation etc. are on containers before they are transferred to sterile yard. RAID members are not ATFP or Boarding Officers. They base out of Kuwait and deploy to in the Middle East with the Army. Timeline for next RAID solicitation (approximate): Solicit in September, select in January, PDT commence in March. Assignment Criteria: Similar to PATFORSWA, but Container Inspection/HAZMAT experience preferred. Big question – How do members request PATFORSWA? Answer – There are NO MORE “general” solicitation messages being released. They weren’t generating enough candidates and AO phones were ringing off the hook w/ too many sporadic questions. With so many different variables for each rating, AOs prefer to fill the positions utilizing methods best suitable to their account (general interest s, web page advertisements, e-resumes, sitreps, “rate-specific” msg solicitation, etc). This creates some internal inconsistency by dissimilar assignment approaches among AOs, but we argue that assignment to PATFOR SWA is not consistent with any other CG assignment, and as such creates unique challenges that differ depending on the account. Members will have to contact their respective AO to find out what method the AO prefers/utilizes. Note: All AOs should have one section on their website or in their rating specific solicitation that addresses this. If this is indeed the case, you can refer everyone to the website to find out. COMPENSATIONS (also on website) Imminent Danger Pay, currently $225 per month Family Separation Allowance, currently $250 per month Combat Zone Tax Relief - currently all Federal Pay is Tax-Exempt (Most states also Tax Exempt). Selective Rating Bonuses earned during tour will be tax free. Rest and Recuperation (R & R) Leave Period with travel at government expense per 12 month tour. Increased Thrift Savings Plan Opportunities. Savings Deposit Program eligibility - Special Savings Program allowing deposits up to $10K earning 10% interest.

US Army Pre Deployment Training is required prior to deployment – to be arranged by CG-DCO-I Big question – How do members request Maritime Facilities Security Force Saudi Arabia? Answer – A general solicitation message will be released providing information on application requirements. With so many different variables for e-resumes, sitreps, “rate-specific” msg solicitation, etc). We shifted to this approach in , and it’s here to stay unless directed otherwise. This creates some internal inconsistency by dissimilar assignment approaches among AOs, but we argue that assignment to PATFOR SWA is not consistent with any other CG assignment, and as such creates unique challenges that differ depending on the account.

See SA website or program specific ALCGENLs for requirements and deadlines CWO Mike Dignan

29 Annual Special Assignments Timeline
Programs are CGIS, CMCs/CSC’s, Recruiting, CCs, CPOA/LAMs Instructors, Divers, EOAs, & numerous others. On the PAL, positions listed as MCPO, SCPO, CPO & POs.

30 Special Needs Program COMDTINST (Series) Member support for dependents w/diagnosed & professionally documented long-term medical, physical, psychological, mental, and/or educational disabilities. Enrollment is mandatory. Needs must be validated every 3 years or when an enrolled family member’s condition changes, and also 9 months prior to projected rotation date. Failure to pre-screen e-Resume with HSWL staff in advance could result in cancelled orders if assignment can’t be cleared by AO Enroll prior to submitting e-Resume. Include in Member Comments that you are enrolled in special needs. Enrollment does not guarantee a specific unit, nor does it preclude members being assigned to afloat units. If you wait until your orders are issued to enroll in special needs, you run the risk of limiting your assignment options. Can use the comments block of e-resume to communicate to the AO that they are in special needs; but should not provide any details of a personal nature Large metro areas tend to be the best options. Orders will not be issued for a member to be a geo-bachelor in a location where family special needs cannot be met Though difficult, being a single parent is not a special needs.

31 Women Afloat Cutters with currently mixed gender crews 104
Gender Neutral not currently mixed gender (87 WPB) 39 Cutters with currently all-male crews 110 (Requires coordination during Assignment Year pending candidate pool and capabilities of berthing configurations.)

This will help aid the assignment of new mixed gender opportunities throughout the assignment year. If interested in positions afloat, following these guidelines: 1. Determine your short-term & long-term goals for next assignment 2. Review all open positions for your rank/rating on the shopping list 3. Call the Women Afloat Coordinator at anytime and your detailer to discuss your advancement & career goals during summer before your transfer (counseling window). 4. Submit an E-Resume including vacant positions for paygrade. List as many positions as possible! 5.
