NPC FORCM WEEKLY 2 – 6 December 2013 Career progression, community management, personnel matters, and general information from the desk of the Navy Personnel Command Force Master Chief, FORCM(SW/AW/EXW) Leland E. Moore MANDATORY EFM PROGRAM ENROLLMENT VERIFICATION NAVADMIN 304/13 directs all commands to review their EFMP enrolled sponsors. Currently, over 25 percent of family members enrolled in EFMP have an expired enrollment status. Sailors should ensure their enrollment is updated 12 months prior to negotiating for orders or PCS. Sailors are required to update their enrollment status every three years or whenever a family member's condition changes. If the status of a Sailor’s EFMP changes, the command should provide the Medical Treatment Facility EFMP coordinator with an official letter requesting disenrollment. All commands are directed to ensure an EFMP command POC is identified in writing and that enrollment statuses of EFMP sponsors are reviewed at least quarterly to ensure enrollment statuses are current. POC for enrollment verification is Ms. Ricka Socha, PERS-456, at (901) 874-4149/DSN 882 or via e-mail at SOLICITING VOLUNTEERS FOR ADVANCEMENT EXAM READINESS REVIEW NAVADMIN 299/13 announced dates for the Advancement Exam Readiness Review.

FREE ADMISSIONS TESTING AVAILABLE FOR SERVICE MEMBERS Your local Navy College Office offers paper-based ACT and SAT college admissions testing at base education centers to active duty service members free of charge. Additional information on the ACT and SAT is available at and DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ESR AND OMPF Don’t confuse Electronic Service Record (ESR) and the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). ESR is found on NSIPS (, while the OMPF is on BOL ( The ESR is the field level data entry point for service record maintenance. Data entered in the ESR may feed into the OMPF, but not all ESR data is required to be entered in the OMPF; examples include e-leave and PCS travel. PSDs use the ESR, but it isn't a permanent record once a member separates or retires. The OMPF is the permanent record of Naval service. Check your OMPF early and often.
