ASSIGNMENTS.  PER REFS A AND B, COMMANDING OFFICERS ARE REQUIRED TO ANNUALLY 
REVIEW AND CERTIFY EACH SAILOR'S ENTITLEMENT TO SDAP.  THIS CERTIFICATION IS

FILL THE BILLET AND IS RECEIVING THE CORRECT SDAP.  CERTIFICATION SHALL 
COMMENCE AT THE RELEASE OF THIS NAVADMIN THROUGH 31 AUG 2011.  COMMANDS THAT

4.  LESSONS LEARNED.
    A.  EACH YEAR COMMANDS SUBMIT THEIR SDAP RECERTIFICATIONS ON 31 AUG AND DO 
NOT ALLOW TIME FOR ERRORS TO BE CORRECTED PRIOR TO THE DEADLINE.  IN ORDER TO 
AVOID OVERPAYMENTS AND INADVERTENT STOPPAGE OF SDAP, COMMANDS ARE ENCOURAGED 
TO COMPLETE SDAP RECERTIFICATION EARLY IN THE RECERTIFICATION WINDOW (PRIOR TO

CLASSIFICATION (NEC) CODES AND SAILORS WERE BEING PAID INCORRECT SDAP PAY 
LEVELS.  PAYMENT OF SDAP IS NOT AUTHORIZED BASED SOLELY ON PERMANENT CHANGE OF 
STATION ORDERS OR DISTRIBUTION NEC'S.  SAILORS MUST HOLD THE REQUIRED NECS.
    C.  COMMANDS DID NOT MAKE THE REQUIRED CORRECTIONS TO MEMBERS SDAP THROUGH 
THEIR LOCAL PSD UNDER THE MISTAKEN BELIEF THAT CORRECTIONS WOULD BE MADE BY 
NPC DURING THE ANNUAL RECERTIFICATION PROCESS.
