8.  Communication with the selection board.  Candidates' LTB, which may be

the opportunity to submit any missing documents from the sections of their 
records that are viewed by the selection boards.  Candidates are encouraged 
to review reference (a), chapter
12 and reference (d), concerning selection board record review and guidance 
for LTB submission.  Further LTB submission guidance is as
follows:
    a.  Information received that is not under the candidate*s LTB (third 
party correspondence) or not received by the NPC CSC by the established 
deadline will not be presented to the board.  The time and date LTBs are 
received in the NPC CSC inbox (Central Standard Time (CST)) is the time and 
date used for deadline verification.
    b.  Candidates must verify that the correct board number (see below) is 
on their LTB to ensure it appears before the proper board.
    c.  Full name and full SSN must be affixed and legible on all documents 
submitted.
