SUBJ/ORDER TO UPDATE NAVY FAMILY ACCOUNTABILITY AND ASSESSMENT SYSTEM
PERSONNEL CONTACT INFORMATION//
AMPN/REF A is OPNAVINST 3006.1, Personnel Accountability In Conjunction With
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the semi-annual update/verification of
personal information in the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System
(NFAAS) by all Navy military and civilian personnel that must be completed no
later than 31 March 2017. NFAAS is the system utilized by the Navy to
account for personnel and their families during widespread natural or man-
made disasters. Accurate contact information of personnel and family members
is required to facilitate a quick and accurate muster of personnel in
affected areas. As directed in reference (a), updates of personal
information will be verified as current by 1 April and 1 October annually.
2. This message applies to all Navy personnel, uniformed (active and
reserve), Navy civilians, and OCONUS contractors in line with the following:
a. It is required for all military personnel to update and verify
contact information and all categories of dependents.
b. It is mandatory for non-bargaining unit civilian employees to update
their contact information. Providing dependents information is voluntary but
highly encouraged. Failure to provide dependent information may exclude them
from receiving potential benefits, if applicable.
c. Bargaining unit civilian employees are highly encouraged to provide
their contact and dependent information on a voluntary basis, until union
notification and subsequent impact and implementation bargaining takes place
3. Echelon II commanders, region commanders, and region personnel
accountability representatives will ensure widest dissemination to all
subordinate, tenant commands, and detachments for action as required. All
commanding officers (CO) and officers-in-charge (OIC) will ensure timely and
accurate updates of Navy member and family member contact information as
stated above. COs and OICs will also contact the human resources office to
request applicable union notifications. This requirement also includes
OCONUS contractors (must enter associated unit identification code). A
report of those commands not in compliance with this NAVADMIN will be
provided to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations for review. All
personnel may logon to NFAAS at https://navyfamily.navy.mil and update/verify
contact information as required.
4. Additionally, each command will institute policies requiring personnel to
update their NFAAS data during check-in and check-out as standard practice.
Military members/dependents must also update NFAAS in any instance in which
they make a permanent change of address. Civilian non-bargaining unit
employees must update their contact information and are highly encouraged to
update their dependents information on a voluntary basis whenever there is a
change. Civilian bargaining unit employees are highly encouraged to update
their information whenever there is a change.
5. For military and civilian members to update contact data, utilize the
NFAAS site at https://navyfamily.navy.mil. Login and update member
information under the "My Info" tab, "Contact Information" section, and
update work location information of the sponsor. Update family member
information under the "My Info" tab, "Family Member Info" section. Edit
member and family member information as necessary and verify as current. All
family members enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program must be
identified as such.
6. The NFAAS site can also be accessed from any Android, IPhone, or
blackberry mobile devices web browser. Although the application uses the
same uniform resource locator address as the NFAAS website, when accessed via
mobile device, the site will be optimized to allow easy viewing and
navigation. The following limited capabilities are available via the mobile
a. Update sponsor contact information.
b. Enter evacuation location information.
c. Allow users to muster.
d. Allow users to complete a needs assessment.
7. Command representatives can validate contact information by using the
personnel tab in NFAAS and use the "Export To Excel" option. Column N
contains the date the contact information was last updated.
8. A tool is available in NFAAS to allow commands to "pull" personnel into
their UIC. This prevents information from incorrectly remaining in a
previous UIC and not being accounted for in the current command within NFAAS.
9. Points of contact:
a. NFAAS help desk/SPAWAR at (866) 946-9183 or via e-mail at
b. Navy Personnel Command emergency coordination center at
(877) 414-5358 or via e-mail at npc.cat.captain(at)navy.mil.
c. CDR Vince Webster, NFAAS Program Manager who can be reached at (202)

10. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or canceled,
whichever occurs first.
