GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  Units will receive a diary feedback report (DFR) with a select grade date of 1 March 2018 for each Marine to be promoted.  The select grade rank, seniority number, and board year will be listed on the "GRAD" screen in the MCTFS.
2.  Upon receipt of this MARADMIN and posting of a select grade on the DFR, but not prior to the 1st of March 2018, commanders will effect the promotion of selected Marines per paragraph 5100 of reference (a).  Cite this MARADMIN as authority for promotion.
3.  Commanders are reminded that reference (b) requires that Marines in the grade of gunnery sergeant and above who have served at least 18 years must have 2 qualifying years (50 points per year) before being eligible to transfer to the reserve retired list at the next higher grade.  Before delivering appointment certificates to Marines in this category, commanders must ensure each Marine has sufficient obligated service remaining on their reserve end of current contract to enable them to serve at least 2 years or until service limits in the grade to which promoted.  If the Marine refuses to extend or reenlist to have sufficient obligated service, inform CMC (MMPR-2) of the Marines refusal.
4.  Commanders are reminded of their inherent responsibilities in the Enlisted Promotion System.  Thoroughly review the record of each selected Marine prior to delivery of the certificate of appointment to ensure the Marine has continued to maintain the high standards of professional and personal performance which led to selection.  You are instructed to review paragraphs 1200.4, 1204 and 3107 of reference (a).  Upon completion of the review of applicable records, if the commanders intent is to delay or revoke the promotion of a selected Marine, reference (a) provides specific guidance and reporting instructions.
5.  Reference (b) enclosure (3) states that commanders are responsible for the accuracy of their Marines records, regardless of the format of the information (paper records, MCTFS records, etc.) and the locations of the records (mainframe databases, IPAC, etc.).  Per reference (c) when a Marine is promoted above the grade ceiling for the PMOS held, commanders will change the Marines PMOS to the career progression MOS.
6.  Commanders who have Marines attached to their command/unit/det in temporary additional duty status must seek concurrence from the Marines parent command prior to effecting the promotion.
7.  The numbers listed in paragraph (8) indicate the seniority number promoted the previous month and the total number to be promoted for the current month.  However, the numbers may not always add up.  This is due to Marines selected noncompetitively (WO selects) who are assigned a seniority number with an alpha letter, Marines who are discharged, and Marines in a promotion restriction status.  To avoid erroneous promotions of SNCOs, it is imperative that commanders follow the guidance in paragraph (1) and only promote Marines with a select grade date in the MCTFS.
