Why ERB?• High retention/ low attrition• Changes in force and realignment resulted in unexpected over and under manned ratings• Other force management tools (PTS, ECTP, ETP, etc) were not meeting required end strength – PTS was not designed to absorb the pressure that was placed on it due to snapshot of force it represents.
ERB Standards• The Navy requires first class petty officers to be fully engaged deckplate leaders who drive mission accomplishment daily. They adhere to the Navy standard through personal example and commitment to teaching Sailors. They challenge, mentor and measure their division’s and command’s success through team performance and deckplate results. They learn from their Chief and train their Division. They demand consistent procedural compliance and accuracy from themselves and those they lead. Their commitment is seen through dedicated self improvement and a passion for excellence in themselves and all Sailors. They clearly communicate standards to the Sailors they lead, while consistently keeping the chain of command informed. They are visibly loyal to the command, Sailors, peers and themselves. They create circumstances which provide their Sailors the opportunity to succeed. They ensure heritage is weaved into daily events, so Sailors understand a commitment to excellence is a time-honored tradition that connects our past while forging the foundation of our future.
ERB substandard and marginal indicators• Documented misconduct involving NJP or civilian offenses• Moral or professional dereliction (DFC)• Eval marks, during the reporting period, suggesting substandard or marginal performance to include: – Significant problems or Progressing - A decline in performance is defined as a decline in two or more trait grades by the same reporting senior on subsequent reports.
ERB substandard and marginal indicators (cont’d)– A decline in promotion recommendation caused by forced distribution is not considered a decline or adverse. If, however, caused by misconduct, it is then considered a decline and may be considered adverse.- Receipt of an eval with any grade below 2.0- Multiple documented Physical Readiness Program failures- Any circumstance related to performance which results in the Sailor’s inability to perform in their rating/duties such as:
ERB substandard and marginal indicators (cont’d)– Loss of security clearance when required by rating– Disqual from performing primary duties in accordance with the Lautenberg Amendment of 1996– Other documented substandard or marginal performance indicators that the Sailor’s retention may be inconsistent with national security interests or may otherwise not be in the best interest of the Navy.
Why PTS?• Force shaping tool – 328,700 FY11 - 320,000 FY14 (estimated) • Streamlined opportunity to convert from overmanned rating to undermanned rating
Who is required to be in PTS?• E3-E6 Sailors• < 14 years of service• Only eligible if last TWO evals were recommended for advancement/retention• Required to be in Fleetride not later than 12 months prior to SEAOS or PRD – PRD required if less than 24 months between PRD and SEAOS
PTS Timeline• Reporting CDB• 24-15 months prior to SEAOS - Determine career intentions (know your YG)• 15-12 months prior to SEAOS – Ensure you are in Fleetride• 12-6 months prior to SEAOS – PTS negotiation window• 6 months prior to SEAOS – Final PTS determination
PTS Timeline• 5-3 months prior to SEAOS – Apply for SELRES quota if desired – Affiliation guaranteed with quota but can still enlist in SELRES without PTS quota – Quota not needed for IRR
Who gets PTS quotas?• Paygrade• Evals• Critical NECs• PFA results• Proximity to SEAOS• Results released mid month following application• Quota expiration
How to succeed in PTS• Know your YG• Study• evals• PFA• Get involved in your career
• Year Group (YG) is based on the Fiscal Year (FY) that a Sailor attended Recruit Training (i.e., entered boot camp December 2009 = YG 2010). Sailors will only be compared against their peers within the same Year Group (YG) vice being compared to Sailors in a whole zone (i.e., E5 with 6.5 years in the Navy to an E6 with 9.5 years).
