RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces changes to Navys policy for first- term 
assignment and expanded incentive programs for enlisted Forward Deployed 
Naval Force (FDNF) Sailors assigned to sea duty in Japan, Guam, and Spain.

2.  Effective immediately, E3 and below first-term Sailors will now be 
authorized accompanied orders to overseas locations where dependents are 
authorized.  References (a) through (c) will be updated to reflect this 
change in the near future.

3.  To encourage and reward Sailors that volunteer to extend their sea duty 
(Type 4) tours to 48 months in Japan, Guam and Spain, the following 
incentives are offered:
    a.  Waiver of remaining Prescribed Sea Tour (PST).  Members currently 
serving on sea tours in Japan, Guam and Spain who extend their tour to a 
minimum of 48 months will have any remaining sea time for that PST waived and 
be allowed to rotate to shore duty for their next tour.  Reference (d) will 
be updated to reflect this change.
    b.  Preferential Consideration for Detailing.  Reference (e) is modified 
as follows.  Effective immediately, members currently on sea tours (Type 4) 
in Japan, Guam, and Spain on sea duty who extend their current assigned tour 
by 12 months or more will be given preferential Career Management 
System/Interactive Detailing (CMS/ID) consideration for advertised billets 
based on community priorities. If multiple preferential applications are made 
for the same advertised billet, the best qualified member will be selected.
    c.  Overseas Tour Extension Incentives Program (OTEIP).  OTEIP detailed 
in reference (f), remains an option for Sailors on sea duty (Type 4) in 
Japan, Guam and Spain when they extend their tours by at least 12 months.
    d.  Sea Duty Incentive Pay (SDIP).  SDIP remains an option for eligible 
Sailors.  For eligibility and program details visit the SDIP website at 
http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/career/payandbenefits/pages/sdip.aspx.

4.  Sailors are encouraged to take advantage of the tour extension incentives 
described in paragraph 3 by submitting a Projected Rotation Date (PRD) 
extension request via NAVPERS 1306/7 (Rev. 1/03), Enlisted Personnel Action 
Request, 14-18 months prior to their PRD.  Sailors should include the OTEIP 
option they desire in their 1306/7 (if applicable).
