SUBJ/ANNOUNCING THE TRANSITION OF THE ACTIVE DUTY LIST NAVY OFFICER
/CORPS TO AN ALL REGULAR FORCE//


GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  THE RONALD W. REAGAN NATIONAL DEFENSE
AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FY-05 PROVIDES SEVERAL CHANGES TO LAWS THAT
GOVERN THE INITIAL APPOINTMENT AND STATUS OF ACTIVE DUTY LIST NAVAL
OFFICERS.  ONE OF THESE CHANGES DIRECTS THAT ALL INITIAL ACCESSIONS
TO THE ACTIVE DUTY LIST BE COMMISSIONED AS REGULAR OFFICERS (UNITED
STATES NAVY) REGARDLESS OF THE COMMISSIONING SOURCE (UNITED STATES
NAVAL ACADEMY, RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING CORPS, AND OFFICER CANDIDATE
SCHOOL) BEGINNING 1 MAY 2005.  THIS CHANGE IN LAW ELIMINATES THE
REQUIREMENT FOR FUTURE AUGMENTATION SELECTION BOARDS.
RE-DESIGNATION BOARDS TO CONSIDER OFFICERS SEEKING TO CHANGE
COMPETITIVE CATEGORIES WILL CONTINUE TO BE HELD.
2.  THE AUTHORIZATION ACT ALSO DIRECTS ALL RESERVE OFFICERS
CURRENTLY ON THE ACTIVE DUTY LIST WHO MEET STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS TO
BE TRANSITIONED TO REGULAR STATUS BY 1 MAY 2006.  GUIDANCE FOR
TRANSITION OF CURRENT ACTIVE DUTY LIST RESERVE OFFICERS WILL BE
PROVIDED IN A FUTURE NAVADMIN.
3.  AS WE CONTINUE TO MAKE CHANGES TO OFFICER PERSONNEL POLICY TO
COMPLY WITH THIS STATUTE, INFORMATION WILL BE PROVIDED TO INFORM,
ADDRESS SPECIFIC QUESTIONS, AND EASE TRANSITION FOR AFFECTED
OFFICERS.
4.  POC:  LCDR ROULSTON AT (703) 693-2313/DSN 223 OR E-MAIL AT
THOMAS.ROULSTON@NAVY.MIL.
