2.b. Be a member in good standing of a bar of a Federal court or the highest court of a state or territory (an inactive selectee must become active before the board report will be approved).
2.c. Do not have an established separation/retirement date that is within 90 days after the convening date of the board.
3. Selection Board. The board will consider officers that fall within the identified zone below. Officers may review reference (b) and their eligibility for the board on the internet at the officer promotion homepage.
3.a. Zone of consideration:
Senior Officer - Brigadier General Baker, John G.
DOR 14Jul15 LCN 03247000
Junior Officer - Colonel Merritt Jr., Thomas B.
DOR 01Oct18 LCN 19211000
4. Request for Non-Consideration. Officers in the eligible population who desire not to be considered by the board must notify Manpower Managment Promotion Branch, Officer Section (MMPR-1) no later than (NLT) 29 November 2020.
5. Board Preparation Guidance. Officers are advised to review MarAdmin 316/20 for guidance regarding submission of information, auditing the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF), Master Brief Sheet (MBS) and fitness reports prior to the convening date of the board.
5.a. Personal responsibilities. Each officer is personally responsible for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of their OMPF and MBS NLT 15 November 2020.
5.b. Obtaining and Reviewing the OMPF. The primary and 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 Manpower Managmentment Records and Performance (MMRP) web site. Refer to reference (c) to determine what documents are appropriate for inclusion in the OMPF.
5.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 Manpower Managmentment Records and Performance, Records Management Section (MMRP-20). Per reference (d), 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 might not be filed in the OMPF in time to go before the 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 Manpower Managmentment Records and, Performance Evaluation Section (MMRP-30). 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 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 5 (MMRP) for OMPF inquiries and document submission points of contact.
5.d. OMPF Document Submission Timelines. It is imperative that documents submitted to CMC (MMRP-20) for inclusion in the OMPF be conspicuously marked "contains documents for FY21 Legal Counsel to the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff Joint Board." Officers are advised that the OMPF and MBS will be forwarded to the board at least two weeks before the board convening date. Officers are highly encouraged to submit all material no later than 15 November 2020. This will allow CMC (MMRP) sufficient time to review the material, reconcile discrepancies, and package the records for submission to the board.
5.e. Communication with the Board. Each officer may communicate with the President of the Board. As per reference (e), such personal communications must be in writing and received or hand-delivered to Harry Lee Hall NLT 29 November 2020, 10 calendar days before the date the board convenes.
5.f. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Ensure the e-mail subject line reads "update material for the FY21 Legal Counsel to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joint Selection Board."
5.g. 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 Presidentwill 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.:
5.g.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).
5.g.2. The cover letter must be addressed to "President, FY21 Legal Counsel to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joint Selection Board" (See paragraph 6a for complete address).
5.g.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 29 November 2020 will not be submitted to the board.
5.g.4. Update Material Receipt Verification. Update material sent via e-mail will receive an e-mail confirmation if sent from an @usmc.mil email account. 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 the board. No further action is required on the officers part.
