Officer promotion delays: CNP says pay, rank will be retroactive

Navy personnel officials said Friday that delays in reviewing officer promotions mean not all officers expected to be eligible for promotion Oct. 1 will get the word — or get bigger paychecks.

“Our goal is to accurately and efficiently review each record in order to allow for timely release of promotion and selection messages,” said Lt. Cmdr. Chris Servello, spokesman for the chief of naval personnel. “We regret any inconvenience caused by these delays.”

As soon as the review and approval process is complete, he said, supplemental promotions messages will be released. The impacted officers are expected to have their promotions backdated to Oct. 1; they’ll get any back pay due them.

CNP’s office, which releases lists of officers authorized to be promoted each month, said in a statement Friday that the following groups of officers won’t be included in the Oct. 1 promotion message.

■ Active line and staff O-4s.

■ Active and Reserve all-fully-qualified (AFQ) O-3s.

■ Active and Reserve warrant officers 3, 4 and 5.

The final O-3 and O-4 reviews were not completed in time for those officers to be included in the message, Navy officials said.

In addition, the results of the active-duty warrant officer promotion board, which met in June, haven’t been approved through their final scrub by the the Navy's Office of the Judge Advocate Genera. Navy officials say the list must then get final approval by Secretary of the Navy. As a result, they don't have a timeline for when that list will be released.

Officials called the delays routine.
