GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  Ref A tasked CMC Safety Division and Manpower and Reserve Affairs to develop a Force Preservation Council Tool to facilitate the hand-off of Marines from one command to another.  Ref B requires commanders of transferring Marines to provide the gaining commander or officer-in-charge relevant FPC information.  This MARADMIN announces the FPC Hand-Off Tool functionality within Marine On-line (MOL) and outlines business rules for using the FPC Hand-Off Tool.  This tool records the FPC point of contact (POC) information of Marines transferring between USMC commands.  Commanding Officers shall ensure all transferring Marines (as defined in paragraph 2) have an FPC POC assigned in MOL. 
2.  Use of the FPC Hand-Off Tool is limited to cases where transferring Marines execute Permanent Change of Station (PCS), Permanent Change of Assignment (PCA), Temporary Duty under Instruction (TEMINS), Duty under instruction (DUINS), and Temporary Addition Duty (TAD) exceeding 30 days.  When a transfer results in a Marine being assigned to a non-Marine unit, i.e. Joint Assignment where there is no FPC, use of the FPC Hand-off tool is not required. The FPC Hand-Off Tool shall not be used for Marines who are discharged or retired.
3.  Effective 15 January 2017, COs and OICs shall use the FPC Hand-Off Tool in MOL to facilitate and document passing force preservation POC information for transferring Marines.

4.  Within 30 days of a Marine joining a unit, gaining Marine COs shall acknowledge receipt of relevant force preservation contact information and enter the following into MOL:
4.a.  ACTION DATE (YYYYMMDD) (date data entered)
