RMKS/1.  REF A PROVIDED CRITERIA FOR ELIGIBILITY.  THIS NAVADMIN UPDATE 
PROVIDES GENERAL PERFORMANCE CRITERIA THE BOARD WILL CONSIDER AND 
INFORMATION REGARDING BOARD COMPOSITION.  ADDITIONALLY, THIS UPDATE 
CLARIFIES THE DEFINITION OF OVERSEAS TOURS, PARA 3.E. OF REF A, IN THE 
CONTEXT OF THE CONTINUATION BOARD.  BOTH NAVADMINS SHOULD BE READ IN 
CONJUNCTION WITH ONE ANOTHER.  AS STATED IN REF A, THE CONTINUATION 
BOARD IS PART OF OUR CONTINUED EFFORT TO OPTIMIZE THE QUALITY OF THE

PARALLEL THOSE FOR BOARDS CONVENED FOR OFFICERS PURSUANT TO REFS B AND 
C.  THOSE NOT SELECTED FOR CONTINUATION WILL BE OFFERED THE OPPORTUNITY 
TO TRANSFER TO THE FLEET RESERVE IN LIEU OF DISCHARGE.
3.  PERFORMANCE CRITERIA.  THE POSITIVE ATTRIBUTES SUMMARIZED IN 
PARAGRAPHS A THRU C BELOW ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE CHIEF'S MISSION, 
VISION AND GUIDING PRINCIPLES, AND ARE DESCRIPTIVE OF THE SENIOR 
ENLISTED LEADERS THAT ARE THE BEST AND MOST FULLY QUALIFIED TO BE 
SELECTED FOR CONTINUATION.
    A.  THE NAVY REQUIRES MASTER CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS, SENIOR CHIEF 
PETTY OFFICERS AND CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS TO DEVELOP SAILORS AND ENFORCE 
STANDARDS WHILE CONDUCTING THEMSELVES IN A CONSISTENTLY PROFESSIONAL 
AND ETHICAL MANNER.
    B.  THE NAVY BENEFITS WHEN SENIOR ENLISTED LEADERSHIP POSSESSES A 
BROAD SPECTRUM OF EXPERIENCE ON DIVERSE PLATFORMS OR WARFARE 
COMMUNITIES WHILE MEETING THE OPERATIONAL/NON-OPERATIONAL (SEA-
SHORE/CONUS-OCONUS) ROTATIONAL REQUIREMENTS EXPECTED OF THEIR RATE AND 
PAYGRADE.
    C.  THOSE MASTER CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS, SENIOR CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS 
AND CHIEF PETTY OFFICERS THAT DEMONSTRATE THE ABILITY TO GENERATE 
POSITIVE RESULTS AND COMMAND SUCCESS THROUGH TEAM AND PERSONAL 
PERFORMANCE SET THE EXAMPLE FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW. ADDITIONAL 
CONSIDERATION WILL BE GIVEN TO THEIR ABILITY TO PRODUCE AND FOSTER WELL 
TRAINED ENLISTED AND OFFICER TEAMS WHILE PROVIDING SOUND PROACTIVE 
SOLUTIONS LINKED TO COMMAND AND NAVY MISSION ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
    D.  FOR THE PURPOSE OF THE PERFORMANCE CONTINUATION BOARD, 
DOCUMENTED MISCONDUCT AND SUBSTANDARD PERFORMANCE WILL BE THE PRIMARY 
REASON A CHIEF PETTY OFFICER IS NOT CONTINUED.  THE FOLLOWING 
ATTRIBUTES INDICATE TO THE BOARD THAT AN INDIVIDUAL MAY NOT MEET THE 
PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR CONTINUATION.  THE ATTRIBUTES ARE NOT 
INTENDED TO BE ALL INCLUSIVE AS THE BOARD WILL USE ITS JUDGMENT TO 
DETERMINE THE BEST AND MOST FULLY QUALIFIED SAILORS FOR CONTINUATION.
      (1) DOCUMENTED SUBSTANDARD PERFORMANCE OF DUTY TO INCLUDE RECEIPT 
OF A "SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS" OR "PROGRESSING" PROMOTION RECOMMENDATION,
      (2) DECLINING PERFORMANCE WITH THE SAME REPORTING SENIOR

      (3) FAILURE TO MAINTAIN PHYSICAL FITNESS ASSESSMENT (PFA)
STANDARDS,
      (4) DETACHMENT FOR CAUSE PER MILPERSMAN 1616-010,
      (5) REMOVAL OF SECURITY CLEARANCE WHEN REQUIRED BY RATING,

4.  BOARD COMPOSITION.  THE CONTINUATION BOARD WILL BE COMPOSED OF A 
FLAG OFFICER PRESIDENT PLUS AT LEAST ONE CAPTAIN FROM THE SURFACE, 
SUBMARINE AND AVIATION COMMUNITIES.  CAPTAINS WILL SERVE AS PANEL HEADS 
WHILE ADDITIONAL PANEL OFFICERS, TYPICALLY O-3 AND ABOVE, WILL ASSIST 
PANEL HEADS IN A MANNER SIMILAR TO THE ENLISTED ADVANCEMENT BOARDS.  
FOR EXAMPLE, A CORPSMEN PANEL WOULD HAVE A CAPTAIN AS THE PANEL HEAD 
WITH A NURSE CORPS OFFICER AS A PANEL OFFICER.  SELECTED ACTIVE DUTY 
AND FULL TIME SUPPORT (FTS) FORCE, FLEET AND COMMAND MASTER CHIEFS WILL 
SERVE AS BOARD MEMBERS, AND SELECTED ACTIVE DUTY AND FTS MASTER CHIEFS 
WILL SERVE AS RECORDERS.  NUMBERS OF OFFICER AND ENLISTED BOARD MEMBERS 
WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE POOL OF ELIGIBLE CANDIDATES. CONSISTENT WITH 
THE METHODOLOGY USED FOR ADVANCEMENT BOARDS, ALL OTHER DUTIES OF 
ASSIGNED BOARD MEMBERS ARE SECONDARY TO THE BOARD, AND CHANGES TO 
MEMBERSHIP ARE ONLY ALLOWED IN EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES.

THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF, AN OVERSEAS OR DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) AREA 
TOUR AT THE BOARD CONVENING DATE ARE EXEMPT FROM THE CONTINUATION BOARD 
AS THESE ARE COMPETITIVE BILLETS WITH A RIGOROUS SCREENING PROCESS.  
PERSONNEL WHO HAVE SERVED OVER TWO YEARS IN AN OVERSEAS TOUR WILL BE 
CONSIDERED BY THE BOARD."
6.  AMPLIFICATION FOR PARA 3.E. OF REF A IS AS FOLLOWS:
    A.  OVERSEAS, FOR PURPOSES OF THE CONTINUATION BOARD, IS DEFINED AS 
TYPE 3, 4 OR 6 DUTY LOCATIONS OUTSIDE THE FIFTY UNITED STATES AND THE 
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

CONTINUATION BOARD.  CONSECUTIVE OVERSEAS TOUR (COT)/OVERSEAS TOUR

SAILORS NOT SELECTED FOR CONTINUATION WILL BE PROCESSED EXTERNAL TO THE
