AMPN/REF A IS BUPERSINST 1610.10D, NAVY PERFORMANCE EVALUATION
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces an upcoming change to reference (a)
directing reporting seniors to use specific officer summary groups
(OSGs) for active component (AC) limited duty officers (LDO) and
chief warrant officers (CWO). The modification aligns the 6XXX and
7XXX designators into specific categories and enables a more focused
community capability for the Navy while preserving the unique
knowledge, skills, and technical abilities of the individual
competitive categories. Changes to OSGs apply to AC LDO and CWO
only. Reserve Component LDOs and CWOs will continue to use current
summary groups LDO Line (61XX/62XX/63XX/64XX), LDO Staff (65XX), and
CWO (7XXX). These changes support the LDO/CWO Officer
Sustainability Initiative (OSI) with a goal to holistically review
the LDO/CWO communities ensuring the force structure of both remains
balanced. As the OSI effort matures, promotion boards will begin
considering LDO and CWOs for promotion in new competitive categories
which mirror the revised OSGs for the FY-21 promotion plan. This
NAVADMIN will remain in effect until the update of reference (a).
2. Fitness reports ending on 1 October 2017 or later (block 15),
reporting seniors must:
a. Rank LDO ensign through captain by OSG as follows: surface
(61XX), submarine/nuclear (62XX), aviation (63XX), general
line/staff (641X, 643X, 647X, 648X, 649X, 653X and 655X), supply
(651X) and information warfare (68XX).
b. Rank CWO2 through CWO5 by OSG as follows: surface (71XX),
submarine/nuclear (72XX/740X), aviation (73XX), information warfare
(78XX), and general line/staff (741X, 748X, 749X, 751X, 752X and
3. This change applies for fitness report purposes only. LDOs and
CWOs will retain their current designators and continue to compete
for statutory promotion within current competitive categories.
4. Amplifying guidance for reporting seniors is provided as
a. Continue adherence to upper limits on early promote and must
promote recommendations in line with reference (a).
b. Existing special billet subcategories will remain in effect.
c. Table 1-3 of reference (a) defines other characteristics
used in determining OSGs.
d. The use of amplifying fitness report verbiage and soft
breakouts by individual community are strongly encouraged. All
efforts should be made to continue to document officers displaying
sustained superior performance.
