3. BOARD PREPARATION GUIDANCE. OFFICERS ARE ADVISED TO REVIEW REF A FOR GUIDANCE REGARDING SUBMISSION OF INFORMATION, AUDITING THE OFFICIAL MILITARY PERSONNEL FILE (OMPF) AND MASTER BRIEF SHEET (MBS), FITNESS REPORTS, PHOTOGRAPHS, DEFERMENT OF ELIGIBILITY, AND REQUESTS FOR NONSELECTION PRIOR TO THE CONVENING DATE OF THE BOARD. OFFICERS MAY REVIEW REF A AT THE OFFICER PROMOTION HOMEPAGE. ALTHOUGH MENTIONED IN REF A, THE FOLLOWING GUIDANCE IS PROVIDED:
   A. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITIES: EACH OFFICER IS PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THE ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS OF THEIR OMPF AND MBS BEFORE THE BOARD CONVENING DATE.
   B. OBTAINING AND REVIEWING THE OMPF. THE PRIMARY MOST EXPEDITIOUS MEANS OF OBTAINING AND VIEWING THE OMPF AND MBS IS THROUGH OMPF ONLINE VIA MOL. THE MBS CAN ALSO BE OBTAINED THROUGH THE MMRP WEB SITE. REFER TO REF C TO DETERMINE WHAT DOCUMENTS ARE APPROPRIATE FOR INCLUSION IN THE OMPF.
   C. OMPF DOCUMENT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES. OFFICERS ARE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR CORRECTING DEFICIENCIES, MISSING INFORMATION, OR ILLEGIBLE DOCUMENTS PRESENT IN EITHER THE OMPF OR MBS WITH CMC (MMRP-20).  PER REFS C AND E, ENSURE ANY MATERIAL SENT TO CMC (MMRP-20) FOR FILING IN THE OMPF CONTAINS FULL NAME, GRADE, AND THE ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE PERSONAL IDENTIFIER (EDIPI). IF THE EDIPI IS NOT ON THE MATERIAL, THEN THE MATERIAL MAY OR MAY NOT BE FILED IN THE OMPF IN TIME TO GO BEFORE THE SELECTION BOARD. OFFICERS ARE REMINDED THAT ANY ADDITIONS OR DELETIONS FROM THEIR OMPF OR MBS WITHIN THE 12-MONTH WINDOW SHOULD ALSO BE VERIFIED TO ENSURE THE ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS OF THEIR RECORD. OMPF DOCUMENTS CAN BE EMAILED AS A PDF ATTACHMENT OR OMPF DOCUMENTS CAN BE MAILED TO CMC (MMRP-20); HOWEVER, INCLUSION INTO THE OMPF IS SUBSTANTIALLY FASTER IF THE DOCUMENTS ARE E-MAILED. SEE PARAGRAPH 4 (MMRP) FOR OMPF INQUIRIES AND DOCUMENT SUBMISSION POINTS OF CONTACT.
   D. OMPF DOCUMENT SUBMISSION TIMELINES. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED TO CMC (MMRP-20) FOR INCLUSION IN THE OMPF WITHIN 60 DAYS OF A SELECTION BOARD BE CONSPICUOUSLY MARKED "CONTAINS DOCUMENTS FOR FY17 (APPROPRIATE BOARD) SELECTION BOARD." WITH THE EXCEPTION OF FITNESS REPORTS, ALL OMPF DOCUMENTS, PARTICULARLY DIGITAL PHOTOS, MUST BE FORWARDED TO AND RECEIVED BY CMC (MMRP-20) AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE CONVENING DATE OF THE SELECTION BOARD IN ORDER TO ALLOW PROCESSING TIME TO THE OMPF. OFFICERS ARE ADVISED THAT THE OMPF AND MBS ARE DISTRIBUTED TO THE BOARDROOM AT LEAST ONE WEEK BEFORE THE BOARD CONVENING DATE. BOARD ELIGIBLE RECORDS CONTINUE TO BE UPDATED UNTIL THE CONVENING DATE OF THE BOARD; HOWEVER, OFFICERS ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT ALL MATERIAL NO LATER THAN TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE BOARD FOR WHICH THEY ARE ELIGIBLE.
   E. CAREER ADVISORS. OFFICERS CONCERNED WITH SPECIFIC ASPECTS OF THEIR RECORD MAY CONTACT (SEE PARAGRAPH 4.C.(6)) THEIR RESPECTIVE CAREER ADVISORS. ACTIVE COMPONENT OFFICERS SHOULD CONTACT CMC (MMSL (GENERAL OFFICERS)/MMRP-50).
   F. PHOTOGRAPHS. PER REFS D AND E, OFFICERS ELIGIBLE FOR PROMOTION CONSIDERATION ARE REQUIRED TO SUBMIT AN OFFICIAL PHOTO WITHIN 12 MONTHS OF THE CONVENING DATE OF THE BOARD. REFS D AND E OUTLINE DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPH SUBMISSION SPECIFICATION REQUIREMENTS.
       (1) REVIEWING PHOTO SUBMISSION. OFFICERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR VERIFYING RECEIPT OF PHOTO BY CMC (MMRP-60). THE PRIMARY MOST EXPEDITIOUS MEANS OF CONFIRMING PHOTO RECEIPT IS THROUGH OMPF ONLINE VIA MOL.  PHOTOS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING ON OMPF ONLINE WITHIN 24 HOURS OF PHOTO RECEIPT BY CMC (MMRP-60). THE DATE OF THE PHOTOGRAPH, AS NOTED ON THE PHOTOGRAPH TITLE BOARD, IS CONSIDERED THE PRIMARY DATE FOR DETERMINING THE 12 MONTH PHOTOGRAPH ELIGIBILITY WINDOW FOR SELECTION BOARDS. OFFICERS ARE ADVISED THAT ALTHOUGH A PHOTO MAY BE OVER 12 MONTHS OLD, THE PHOTO WILL REMAIN IN THE OMPF UNTIL AN UPDATED PHOTO IS SUBMITTED.
       (2) HARD COPY PHOTOS. OFFICERS WHO CHOOSE TO SUBMIT A HARD COPY PHOTO DIRECTLY TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD ARE ADVISED THAT THE PHOTO WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE OMPF. VERIFICATION OF HARD COPY PHOTOS SUBMITTED DIRECTLY TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH THE OFFICER PROMOTION HOMEPAGE.
   G. COMMUNICATION WITH THE BOARD. EACH OFFICER MAY COMMUNICATE WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD. BY LAW SUCH PERSONAL COMMUNICATIONS MUST BE IN WRITING AND RECEIVED OR HAND-DELIVERED TO HARRY LEE HALL NO LATER THAN 2359 (EASTERN TIME) ON THE DAY BEFORE THE DATE THE BOARD CONVENES. HOWEVER, REQUEST OFFICERS SUBMIT SUCH PERSONAL COMMUNICATIONS TO CMC (MMPR-1) AT LEAST FIVE WORKING DAYS BEFORE THE DATE THE BOARD CONVENES. THIS FIVE-DAY PERIOD PROVIDES CMC (MMPR-1) SUFFICIENT TIME TO REVIEW THE MATERIAL, RECONCILE DISCREPANCIES, AND ENTER THE MATERIAL IN THE UPDATE MATERIAL DATABASE. THE INFORMATION IN THIS DATABASE IS THEN UPLOADED TO THE INTERNET SO OFFICERS CAN PERSONALLY CONFIRM RECEIPT OF THE MATERIAL VIA THE OFFICER PROMOTION HOMEPAGE. IN ADDITION, DO NOT SEND DUPLICATE COPIES OF UPDATE MATERIAL. DOING SO CAUSES CMC (MMPR-1) TO AGAIN PROCESS THE MATERIAL AND FOR THE BOARD TO REVIEW DUPLICATE COPIES OF THE MATERIAL SUBMITTED.
   H. FORWARDING COMMUNICATIONS TO THE BOARD. OFFICERS MAY SUBMIT COMMUNICATIONS VIA U.S. MAIL, NEXT DAY PACKAGES, OR FAX. U.S. MAIL IS NOT DELIVERED DIRECTLY TO HARRY LEE HALL, THEREFORE, ANTICIPATE A 2-3 DAY LAG TIME FOR FURTHER DELIVERY TO HARRY LEE HALL. COMMERCIAL NEXT DAY CARRIERS DELIVER DIRECTLY TO HARRY LEE HALL, EXCLUDING WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS. OFFICERS WITH THE CAPABILITY TO SCAN THEIR DOCUMENTS MAY SEND THE SCANNED DOCUMENTS VIA E-MAIL DIRECTLY TO THE ORGANIZATIONAL MAILBOX OFFICERPROMOTIONS(AT)USMC.MIL. ENSURE THE E-MAIL SUBJECT LINE READS "UPDATE MATERIAL FOR THE FY17 USMC (APPROPRIATE GRADE) PROMOTION SELECTION BOARD."
   I. UPDATE MATERIAL. OFFICERS MAY SUBMIT TO THE BOARD ANY WRITTEN INFORMATION, TO INCLUDE WRITTEN MATERIAL THEY DEEM IMPORTANT FOR CONSIDERATION. OMPF MATERIALS SENT DIRECTLY TO THE BOARD PRESIDENT WILL NOT BECOME PART OF AN OFFICER'S OMPF. ALTHOUGH OFFICERS MAY SUBMIT ANY MATERIAL AS UPDATE MATERIAL, OFFICERS SHOULD CONTACT CMC (MMRP-30) BEFORE SUBMITTING FITNESS REPORTS AS UPDATE MATERIAL AND CMC (MMRP-20) FOR ANY OTHER OMPF MATERIALS. THIS PROCESS WILL ENSURE AN OFFICER'S OMPF IS APPROPRIATELY UPDATED. THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE MEANS BY WHICH AN OFFICER SUBMITS MATERIAL, E.G., MAIL, FAX, E-MAIL, ETC.:
       (1) UPDATE MATERIAL MUST BE IN WRITING AND SUBMITTED UNDER COVER LETTER WITH THE UPDATE MATERIAL AS ENCLOSURES (A SAMPLE COVER LETTER IS AVAILABLE AT THE OFFICER PROMOTION HOMEPAGE);
       (2) THE COVER LETTER MUST BE ADDRESSED TO PRESIDENT, FY17 USMC (APPROPRIATE GRADE) PROMOTION SELECTION BOARD (SEE PARAGRAPH 4A FOR COMPLETE ADDRESS);
       (3) UPDATE MATERIAL MUST BE FROM THE ELIGIBLE OFFICER; AND THE OFFICER MUST SIGN THE COVER LETTER. DIGITAL SIGNATURES ARE AUTHORIZED ON E-MAIL SUBMISSIONS. MATERIAL SUBMITTED THAT IS NOT IN WRITING, SUBMITTED WITHOUT A SIGNED COVER LETTER, OR RECEIVED AFTER MIDNIGHT ON THE DAY BEFORE THE DATE THE BOARD CONVENES WILL NOT BE SUBMITTED TO THE BOARD.
   J. UPDATE MATERIAL RECEIPT VERIFICATION. OFFICERS DESIRING TO VERIFY THAT CMC (MMPR-1) HAS PHYSICALLY RECEIVED UPDATE MATERIAL MAY DO SO VIA THE OFFICER PROMOTION HOMEPAGE.  OFFICERS ARE REMINDED THAT UPDATE MATERIAL RECEIVED BY CMC (MMPR-1) TAKES APPROXIMATELY FIVE WORKING DAYS TO BE REVIEWED AND ENTERED IN THE UPDATE MATERIAL DATABASE, THEREFORE, OFFICERS SHOULD NOT EXPECT TO SEE THE INFORMATION AT THE OFFICER PROMOTION HOMEPAGE IMMEDIATELY UPON RECEIPT BY CMC (MMPR-1).
