GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  The FY19 RCSB and RSLB will convene 13 August 2018 for Reserve Component (RC) lieutenant colonels (LtCol) and 20 August 2018 for RC colonels (Col).  The board will select RC officers for designated commands/Reserve Senior Leader (RSL) billets projected to be available between 1 October 2018 and 30 September 2019.  RSL billets are not designated command billets, but they entail significant responsibility.  Therefore, applicants applying for RSL billets are governed by the same competitive criteria and requirements for command.
2.  Purpose.  Per reference (a), the Reserve Command Screening Program (RCSP) evaluates, screens and slates RC officers providing Marines with the best possible leadership in order to maintain a competent and well-balanced fighting force.
3.  Board Process.  Each board will select primaries for each available billet from the pool of eligible RC officer applicants.  Additionally, the board will select a sufficient number of qualified alternates to meet manpower requirements that may arise if selected officers do not accept or subsequently vacate command during their tour.  Upon completion of the board, the proposed slates and alternate lists will be forwarded to CMC for approval.  Once approved, primary selectees will be announced via MARADMIN and the alternate list will be posted on the RAM-3 website.
4.  Active Reserve (AR) Program Officer Eligibility for Command Slated Billets.  All AR Col/Col selects and AR LtCol/LtCol selects are eligible, except as outlined in paragraph (par) 6.  AR officers applying for RCSB billets will do so in accordance with (IAW) par 13.
5.  Application Procedures.  Officers who desire to be screened must complete the following:
    a.  Submit the web-based, online application as outlined in par
13.  No other application methods will be accepted.  IAW reference (g), applicants must possess the Primary MOS (PMOS) required by the billet(s) as listed in par 8 and 9.  PMOS modification requests must be finalized prior to the convening of the boards.  An example request to modify a PMOS can be found on the Manpower and Reserve Affairs webpage at www.manpower.usmc.mil.  From the homepage, click on “Reserve Marine,” “Personnel Management (RAM),” “Individual and Reserve Programs (RAM-3)” and look under the references tab.
    b.  Aviators must submit an Aviation Qualification Summary (AQS) (located on the online application) with current Up-Chit when applying for a command requiring Duty Involving Flying - Operational (DIFOP).
    c.  Submit a current promotion photograph IAW reference (b).
6.  Ineligibility.  Officers who meet any of the following criteria are ineligible for the FY19 RCSB and RSLB:
    a.  Officers with an established separation or retirement date.
    b.  Officers, to include those who are retired recalled, with a mandatory removal/retirement date falling within the two years of the projected slate tour.
    c.  Officers currently holding an RCSP billet, have previously held an RCSP billet for at least 12 months in their current grade, or were slated on a previous RCSP board and currently awaiting assignment to their slated billet.  This does not preclude a Col select currently in an LtCol command billet from applying for a Col command or RSL billet, or an unrestricted (UR) Col who has previously held an RCSP billet in the rank of Col from applying for a post-command Selected Marine Corps Reserve (SMCR) Senior Leader billet.
    d.  LtCols who are in-zone or above-zone on the next scheduled promotion selection board.
    e.  AR officers serving in a joint duty assignment who have not completed 22 months of the assignment by the projected change of command date for the command to which applying.
    f.  Officers approved for sanctuary (attained approval by Deputy Commandant for Manpower and Reserve Affairs (DC MRA), to exceed 18 total years of active duty (AD) service), serving on current orders ending beyond 18 total years of AD service, or if the assignment to an RCSP billet will take them beyond 18 total years of AD service.  This restriction does not apply to AR officers.
    g.  Officers who are unwilling or unable to attend The Commandant's Combined Commandership Course (Cornerstone).
    h.  Officers who failed to achieve a satisfactory year the previous anniversary year if already retirement eligible.  These officers are automatically screened for transfer to the Inactive Status List (ISL).
7.  Active Duty Orders.
    a.  Inactive Status.  Officers slated for an RCSP billet, who are subsequently issued active duty orders ending after the projected Command/RSL billet start date, must return to an inactive duty status prior to assuming an RCSB or RSLB billet.
    b.  Mobilization.  In the event an officer serving in an RCSP billet is mobilized and the duration of mobilization orders carries the officer beyond 18 total years of AD service, the following applies:
        (1) Officers approved for sanctuary may remain with the SMCR unit until unit demobilization.
        (2) Upon demobilization, the officer will be reassigned to a validated requirement commensurate with the needs of the Marine Corps per reference (h) unless foregoing sanctuary protection and voluntarily accepting release from AD to retain command of the SMCR unit or remain in a slated RSL billet.

12.  Training.  Officers slated for a command billet as outlined in par 8, officers selected for a post-command billet in par 9a, officers not previously holding a Col RCSP billet and officers selected for an SMCR Senior Leader billet in par 9b, will attend Cornerstone prior to, or shortly after, assuming command.  Officers slated for an IMA RSL billet, par 9c, will not attend Cornerstone.  Slated commanders for flying squadrons must complete training as prescribed in reference (c).
13.  Application Process.
    a.  The deadline for submitting an application is 4 June 2018, 2359 EST.  Late submissions will not be accepted.  The web-based, online application is the only method to apply.  Applicants must go to the Reserve Command Screening website at:  www.manpower.usmc.mil/application.  Click "FY19-RCSB" and complete the application.  Common Access Card (CAC) certification is not required to access the site.  Officers with an MRA portal account will proceed to the login process.  Upon login, the system will validate basic individual eligibility for application.  Officers are advised to read the instructions in their entirety before completing the application.  The web-based application allows for the attachment of documents and offers billet preference options via drop-down boxes.  Ensure upload of documents into the appropriate document type.  You are encouraged to submit a signed Reserve Qualification Summary (RQS) NAVMC 10476.  You are also encouraged to submit a letter to the President of the Board.  The primary purpose of the letter is for an officer to explain to the Board why they are applying for a specific command/Billet and what the officer has accomplished to be the best fit for that Command/Billet.  Letters should also address any discrepancies in an officer's record.  If an aviator is applying for a flying squadron, attachment of an AQS (located on the on-line application) with current Up-Chit is required.  Once submitted, officers will receive a confirmation email regarding application status.  Hard copy applications will not be accepted.  Officers who do not have an MRA portal account will receive a 404 access error.  Within the error message are instructions on how to register for an MRA portal account, which is available to all officers.  Any Officer who cannot access the application should contact the RCSB POC listed in this MARADMIN.
    b.  Update Material.  Officers may upload update material for consideration by the board.  Update material must be submitted via the on-line application.  Material must be submitted by the eligible officer and addressed to the President, FY19 RCSB and RSLB.  Only officers who submit an application prior to 4 June 2018 will be able to submit update material.  The final deadline for update material is 24 July 2018, 2359 EST.  Late submissions will not be accepted.  All material submitted to the board will be destroyed upon completion of the board.
    c.  Photographs.  Per reference (a), a current photograph is required, IAW reference (b).
        (1) Officers are responsible for verifying receipt of their photograph by CMC (MMRP-20).  The primary method of confirming receipt of a photograph is through the OMPF online via MOL.  Photographs will be available for viewing online within 48 hours of photograph receipt by CMC (MMRP-20).  Photographs are considered current if submitted within the 12 months preceding the convening date of the board.  The date listed on the individual officer's photograph title board is the date used to determine whether or not it is current for the purpose of board consideration.  Officers are advised that outdated photographs will remain in the OMPF until an updated photograph is submitted.  Marines may confirm receipt of their digital photograph via the MMRP website by accessing www.manpower.usmc.mil.  Under “Top Requests,” click on “Fitreps and Official Military Personnel File (OMPF)”.  Under “Related Links,” click on “How to Request your OMPF” and follow the instructions.
    d.  Fitness Reports.  Information regarding Fitness Reports can also be accessed via the MMRP website by following the instructions above for photographs.
    e.  OMPF Material.  Reference (f) includes examples of documents considered appropriate for inclusion in an OMPF.  Any document(s) that an officer believes should be part of his/her OMPF, other than Fitness Reports, must be forwarded to CMC (MMRP-20) NLT 24 July 2018, 2359 EST.  Email is the preferred method to update an OMPF.  Email OMPF material to smb.manpower.mmrp-20@usmc.mil.  In the text of the Email, indicate application to the (FY19 RCSB or RSLB).  A single black and white multi-page attachment in Adobe PDF format will expedite filing.  Ensure all material contain full name and Electronic Data Interchange Personal Identifier (EDIPI).
