GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  As announced by Ref a, the FY19 U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) promotion selection board will convene on 7 February 2018, at Harry Lee Hall, Marine Corps Base, Quantico, VA.  The board will consider CWOs serving in an active status for promotion in Other Than Active Reserve (OTAR) and Active Reserve (AR) competitive categories, by military occupational specialty (MOS).  CWOs identified as Reserve Active-Status List (RASL) in Ref b are in OTAR competitive categories.  The OTAR selection boards will consider officers for promotion to the grades of CWO5, CWO4, and CWO3 if vacancies become available in the OTAR MOS competitive categories in these grades.  CWOs identified as AR in Ref b are in AR competitive categories.  The AR selection boards will consider officers for promotion to the grades of CWO5, CWO4, and CWO3 if vacancies become available in the AR MOS competitive categories in the AR program in these grades.  The AR MOS competitive categories are:
1.a.  Personnel (MOS 0170)
1.b.  Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (MOS 6004)
1.c.  Aviation Ordnance (MOS 6502)
2.  Promotion Board.  The board will consider three categories of officers as specified by the yearly promotion plan:  Above-Zone, In-Zone, and Below-Zone.  Officers identified as RASL or AR in ref (b) are eligible for their respective board if, on the convening date of the board, the officers have continuously performed service on either the RASL or the Active-Duty List (or a combination of both lists) for a period of one year.  However, officers with established separation/retirement dates within 90 days after the convening date of their respective board will not be considered by the board if the separation/retirement date is established by midnight on the day the board convenes.  Officers whose lineal control number (LCN) precedes the senior officer In-Zone are defined as Above-Zone.  Those Above-Zone officers who have not been previously considered are defined as "Above-Zone, not previously considered."  Officers in this status are considered by the board to be In-Zone.  Officers may review Ref b and their eligibility for the board on the internet at the officer promotion homepage.  The senior and junior officers In-Zone (SR IZ and JR IZ) and the junior officer eligible Below-Zone (JR BZ) are as follows (Enclosures (1) and (2) of Ref b apply):

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, and photographs prior to the convening date of the board.  Officers are also reminded to review guidance in ref a regarding the Career Retirement Credit Report (CRCR) and Reserve Qualification Summary (RQS).  OTAR officers are required to submit a complete RQS as update material to the board by 2359 (Eastern Time) on the day before the date the board convenes.  Officers may review ref a at the officer promotion homepage.  The following guidance is provided:
3.a.  Personal Responsibilities:  Each officer is personally responsible for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of their OMPF and MBS before the board convening date.
3.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.
3.c.  OMPF Document Submission Guidelines.  Officers are personally responsible for correcting deficiencies, omissions, or illegible documents present in either the OMPF or MBS with CMC (MMRP-20).  Per refs d 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).  Absence of the EDIPI may cause a delay in processing, resulting in material not being resident in the OMPF prior to the convening selection board.  For corrections or updates to the Administrative Information Section of the MBS contact your unit S-1 or Installation Personnel Administration Center (IPAC).  For corrections, deficiencies, missing fitness reports and date gaps to the Performance Evaluation Summary section of the MBS contact (MMRP-30).  Officers are reminded to verify any additions or deletions from their OMPF or MBS within the 12-month window to ensure the accuracy and completeness of their record.  OMPF documents can be e-mailed 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.
3.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 FY19 (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.
3.e.  Photographs.  Per ref e, officers eligible for promotion consideration are required to submit an official photo within 12 months of the convening date of the board.  Ref e outlines digital photograph submission specification requirements.
3.e.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 to 48 hours of 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.
3.e.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.
3.f.  Career Advisors.  The RAM-3 Career Advisory Cell provides Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) review and career counseling for all members of the Reserve Component (AR, SMCR, IMA, IRR).  To request counseling services, send an email to "smb.manpower.cac@usmc.mil" with your name, EDIPI, contact information and service you are requesting.  More information can be found by accessing www.manpower.usmc.mil.  Click on "Reserve Marine", "Reserve Affairs(RA)", "Personnel Management (RAM)", "RAM-3", and "Career Advisory Cell.
3.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 Standard 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.  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.
3.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 to 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@usmc.mil. Ensure the e-mail subject line reads "Update Material For The FY18 USMCR CWO Promotion Selection Board."
3.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 officers 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 officers 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.:
3.i.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).
3.i.2.  The cover letter must be addressed to president, FY19 USMCR CWO Promotion Selection Board (see paragraph 4a for complete address).
3.i.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.
3.j.  Update Material Receipt Verification.  Update material sent via e-mail will receive an e-mail confirmation.  The e-mail confirmation receipt is the official notification that CMC (MMPR-1) has received your update material, and will be provided to the president of your board.  No further action is required on the officers part.
3.k.  Request for non-selection.  Officers eligible for promotion who plan to retire may write to the president of the board requesting they not be selected for promotion.
3.l.  Post-board information and guidance.  Officers may view the approval progress of their board from the officer promotion homepage.  CWO board results will be announced via ALNAV when the promotion scroll is approved by SECDEF.
