2.  Promotion Boards.  The Colonel through Major Promotion Boards will consider three categories of officers:  Above-Zone, In-Zone and Below-Zone.  The Captain Promotion Boards will consider two categories of officers:  Above-Zone and In-Zone.  There are no eligible officers in the Below-Zone.  Officers defined as Reserve Active Status-List (RASL) in reference (b) are eligible for the boards if, on the convening date of their respective 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 whose established date for removal from the RASL is within 90 days after the date the board is convened will not be considered by the board.  Officers whose established release date from Active Duty in the AR Program, but not the RASL, is within 90 days after the date the board convenes will not be considered by the board.  These officers will be considered by their respective Unrestricted Reserve Promotion Selection Boards.  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.  The senior and junior officer eligible in-zone and junior officer below-zone are as follows (Encl (1) of reference (b) applies):

3.  Merit-Based Promotion List Reorder.  Section 14308 of title 10, U.S. Code, as amended by section 504 of the FY19 National Defense Authorization Act, allows the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) to authorize promotion boards to reorder their recommended promotion list based on particular merit.  Officers on the Unrestricted Colonel, Unrestricted Lieutenant Colonel, Active Reserve Colonel and Active Reserve Lieutenant Colonel promotion lists may be placed higher on the promotion list only if the officer receives the recommendation of at least a majority of the members of the board, unless the SECNAV establishes an alternative requirement.  For officers recommended to be placed higher on a promotion list, the board shall recommend the order in which those officers should be placed on the list.  
4.  Continuation.  Continuation Boards are no longer convened in conjunction with promotion boards for Reserve officers.  For additional guidance contact the Reserve Affairs Management (RAM) Branch.
5.  Departure from the Running Mate System.  The Secretary of the Navy has approved a temporary departure from the running mate system for all ranks and competitive categories of reserve officer promotions.  This departure will assist the Marine Corps in managing statutory grade strength for officers of all grades.  Officers should carefully check their in-zone status, as the zones and opportunity may not mirror that of the active component.  Additionally, reserve officers selected for promotion in FY23 will not be assigned a running mate.  They will be promoted as announced in monthly promotion MARADMINS as vacancies allow.
6.  Board Preparation Guidance.  Officers are advised to review reference (a) for guidance regarding submission of information, auditing the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) and Master Brief Sheet (MBS), and fitness reports prior to the convening date of the board.  Officers are also reminded to review guidance in reference (a) regarding the Career Retirement Credit Report (CRCR) and Reserve Qualification Summary (RQS).  Unrestricted officers are encouraged to submit a complete RQS as update material to the board to arrive not later than 10 calendar days (see paragraph 6.k.3.) before the date the board convenes.  Officers may review reference (a) at the officer promotion homepage.  The following guidance is provided:
6.a.  Personal Responsibilities.  Each officer is personally responsible for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of their OMPF and MBS before the board convening date.
6.b.  Obtaining and Reviewing the OMPF.  The primary, most expeditious means of obtaining and viewing the OMPF and MBS is through OMPF online via Marine Online (MOL).  The MBS can also be obtained through the Manpower Management Records and Performance (MMRP) web site.  Refer to reference (c) to determine what documents are appropriate for inclusion in the OMPF.
6.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 CMC (MMRP-20).  Per reference (c), 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 (general officers contact MMSL) or Installation Personnel Administration Center (IPAC).  For correcting 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 mailed  to CMC (MMRP-20), however, inclusion in the OMPF is substantially faster if the documents are e-mailed.  See paragraph 7.d (MMRP) for OMPF inquiries and document submission points of contact.
6.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 FY23 (appropriate board) selection board".  With the exception of fitness reports, officers are highly encouraged to ensure all OMPF documents are 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.
6.e.  Career Advisors.  The Reserve Affairs, Career Management Team (CMT) provides OMPF review and career counseling for all members of the Reserve Component (AR, SMCR, IMA, IRR).  To request counseling services, send an email to with your name, EDIPI, contact information, and service you are requesting.  More information can be found by accessing their website at "" 
6.f.  Fitness reports.  Fitness reports are due to CMC (MMRP-30) by the timelines noted in reference (d).  Reports mailed directly to the president of the board will not be added to an officer's OMPF.  For fitness reports to become part of the OMPF, the reports must be submitted to CMC (MMRP-30).  The Automated Performance Evaluation System (A-PES) is the primary means of submitting fitness reports, however, reporting officials may email pdf copies to the MMRP-32 organizational mailbox at  So long as the mailer's email account can be confirmed as either the reporting senior's or reviewing officer's .mil email address.  If mailing a paper version of a report to HQMC, it is imperative that the forwarding envelope be conspicuously marked "contains FITREPs for FY23 (appropriate board) selection board".  Timely submission of fitness reports is critical for board eligible members as CMC (MMRP-30) will need time to review reports for accuracy and compliance.  Commanders are ultimately responsible for the timely submission of fitness reports to (CMC) MMRP-30 and ensuring that all fitness report timelines noted in reference (d) are adhered to.
6.f.1.  Date gaps must be corrected IAW chapter 8 and appendix F of reference (d).  If missing reports are less than one year old, a reconstructed original is required.  Copies of the completed fitness reports over one year old must have all pages certified as true copies by either one of the reporting officials (RS/RO).  For completion and submission of reports that are over one year old it is preferable that the original reviewing officer complete the report, however, CMC (MMRP-30) may act as the reviewing officer on reports that are not adverse on a case-by-case basis.
6.f.2.  Officers are reminded that requests for administrative changes to their fitness report records may take up to 30 days to complete.  Due diligence for records correction timeliness rests solely on the officer making the request.
6.g.  Communication with the Board.  Each officer may communicate with the president of the board.  Per reference (e), an officer eligible for consideration by a selection board convened, under section 14101 of title 10, U.S. Code, as amended by FY19 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), may send a written communication to the board, to arrive not later than 10 calendar days before the date the board convenes.  The information in this database is then up-loaded to the internet so that officers can personally confirm receipt of the material via the officer promotion homepage.  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.
6.h.  Forwarding Communications to the Board.  All eligible officers may submit correspondence to their respective promotion selection board via U.S. Mail, next-day delivery services (FedEx, UPS, etc.), email, or fax.  U.S. Mail is not delivered directly to Harry Lee Hall.  Therefore, anticipate a 2-3 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 may send their correspondence via email directly to the organizational mailbox:  Ensure the email subject line reads "correspondence to the FY23 USMC (appropriate grade) promotion selection board."  Contact information is located in paragraph 7.a of this MARADMIN.
6.i.  Officer Correspondence.  All eligible officers may, if desired, submit correspondence to the President of the Board. The correspondence should include only those matters deemed important in the consideration of an officers record.  OMPF materials sent directly to the board president will not become part of an officer's OMPF.  Although officers may submit any material they deem important, officers should contact CMC (MMRP-30) before submitting fitness reports and CMC (MMRP-20) for any other OMPF materials.  This will ensure that an officer's OMPF is appropriately updated.  The following guidelines apply:
6.i.1.  Correspondence must be submitted under signed cover letter by the eligible officer with the material for the board’s consideration listed as enclosures (a sample cover letter is available at the officer promotion homepage).  Material submitted without a signed cover letter by the eligible officer will not be submitted to the board.
6.i.2.  The cover letter must be addressed to the President, FY23 USMC (appropriate grade and competitive category) promotion selection board (see paragraph 7a for complete address), and signed with a pen by the eligible officer.
6.i.3.  Pursuant to Title 10, U.S.C. Section 614(b), officer correspondence must arrive NLT 10 days prior to the board convene date in order to be considered.  Correspondence arriving after this date will not be seen by the board.   The 10 calendar days before the date the board convenes is noted below:
Selection To         Component     Convening Date   Due Date 
Col, LtCol, and Maj  AR            5 Oct 21         24 Sep 21
Col                  Reserve       5 Oct 21         24 Sep 21
LtCol                Reserve      11 Jan 22         31 Dec 21
Maj                  Reserve       4 Jan 22         24 Dec 21
Capt                 Reserve/AR    2 Feb 22         22 Jan 22
6.i.4.  Communications or memorandums of recommendation from other parties on behalf of officers eligible for consideration will not be provided to the board unless forwarded as an enclosure to a signed memorandum to the board from the officer being considered IAW paragraphs 6.i.1-3 of this MARADMIN.
6.j.  Verification of Receipt of Correspondence.  Correspondence sent via email will receive an email confirmation.  The email confirmation receipt is the official notification that CMC (MMPR-1) has received your update material.
6.k.  Classified  Reports.  Eligible officers whose records contain classified reports should notify CMC, Officer Promotion Section, (MMPR-1) as soon as possible.  Notification should include the Marines' full name, EDIPI, grade, occasion, and dates of the report(s).  CMC (MMPR-1) will confirm the existence of the report(s) and ensure its consideration by the board.
6.l.  Request for Non-Selection.  Officers eligible for promotion who plan to separate or retire may correspond with the president of the board requesting they not be selected for promotion.  Any officer who writes such a letter to the board will still be considered for promotion and will incur a failure of selection if not recommended for promotion by the board.  Requests for non-selection constitute officer correspondence and thus are subject to the guidance provided in paragraphs 6.g thru 6.i.4 of this MARADMIN.
6.m.  Post-board information and guidance.  Officers may view the approval progress of their board from the officer promotion homepage.  When the results of a field grade board are authorized to be released, a personal for (P-4) email will be forwarded to all Marine Corps general officers and certain colonels.  The P-4 affords the recipients an opportunity to ensure each select and in-zone non-select are advised of their promotion status.  The P-4 includes work phone numbers that are obtained from MCTFS.  All officers are required to ensure their contact data is correct in MOL and MCTFS and to verify the accuracy of their MCC, unit, billet, phone, and email information.  Accurate, current contact information will facilitate more efficient notification.  Approximately five (5) working days after a P-4 is released, SECNAV will release the ALNAV announcing the names of the officers selected by the board.  Captain and CWO board results will be announced via ALNAV when those board reports are approved by SECDEF.
