GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. MARADMIN 373/23 announced that the Officer Retention Board(s) would be suspended and replaced with the Career Designation Panel(s) (CDP). The Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) CDP2 convened on 11 September 2023 aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico. Based on the panel's recommendations, Manpower Management (MM) will offer career designation to selected officers, allowing them to remain on active duty beyond their initial service obligation.
2. Career Designation Process
2.a. The offer of CD is a milestone in a Marine officer’s career. Commanders are required to counsel those officers who have been offered CD on the implications of either accepting or declining CD before that officer responds to the offer. In addition to speaking with their commander, officers considering declining CD should also reach out to their MMOA Monitor before declining the offer of CD.
2.b.1. Reserve, Retention & Release Officer (RRO), Manpower Management Officer Assignments 3 (MMOA-3) will notify all officers being offered CD via Marine Online (MOL). RRO will also notify Commanders of those officers being offered CD via Commander’s Messages in MOL.
2.b.2. RRO will notify all officers not being offered CD via MOL. RRO will also notify commanders of officers not being offered CD via Commander’s Messages in MOL. Those officers who were not offered CD are eligible to screen on subsequent panels if their current Expiration of Active Service (EAS) date is scheduled to occur after 1 March 2024.
2.b.3. A list of all officers who will be offered CD is located on the following site: https:(slash)(slash)www.manpower.usmc.mil/webcenter/portal/OA3RR/pages_retentionreleasecopy1.
2.c. Accepting or Declining
2.c.1. Officers offered CD must accept or decline the offer by responding to the MOL message no later than 2359 27 October 2023. Officers who do not respond to this offer by the deadline will be considered as having declined CD and will execute their existing EAS.
2.c.2. Officers who accept CD will incur a 24-month active duty service obligation beginning 30 September 2023 and ending 1 October 2025. This obligation runs concurrently with, not in place of, any existing or future obligation incurred by PCS orders. Officers who accept the offer of CD will have their EAS changed to indefinite (00000000) upon acceptance.
2.c.3. Officers who decline CD will execute their current EAS.
2.c.4. Captains selected to the rank of Major are automatically offered CD. Officers in this category must contact the RRO at the POC number listed above.
2.d. Reporting and Administration
2.d.1. The RRO will report the offer of CD via Unit Diary Marine Integrated Personnel System (UDMIPS). Commands will be notified via the Diary Feedback Report (DFR) to the respective Installation Personnel Administration Centers (IPACs) per reference (c), paragraph 41001. This information will reflect on the Officer Data (OFFD) screen in the Marine Corps Total Force System (MCTFS).
2.d.2. The following codes can be used to determine an officer’s CD status in MCTFS:
1 - Active Screening on a CDP
2 - Offered CD
5 - Not Offered CD
6 - Accepted CD
7 - Declined CD / Did Not Respond
2.d.3. Admin Chiefs, Personnel Chiefs, Personnel Officers, Manpower Officers, IPACs and G1’s can utilize the OFFD screen via MCTFS to verify officers who were offered, not offered, accepted, or declined CD. This information is resident in the MCTFS record and can be found as ACDU CAREER DESIG CODE and ACDU CAREER DESIG CONSIDER DT.
3. Remedial Career Designation
3.a. Under the Command General Remedial CD Program, Commanding Generals are authorized per reference (a) to nominate for remedial CD consideration those eligible Marines who were not offered CD on CDP2 to the RRO/MMOA-3.
3.b. Officers who were not offered CD may request remedial nomination via the NAVMC 10274 Administrative Action (AA) Form. AA Forms must be addressed to the MARFOR Commanding General and endorsed by the officer’s chain of command.
3.c. Officers who are nominated for CD under the remedial program must meet the qualifications specified in reference (a). The nominees for remedial CD are due to MMOA-3 within 30 days of publication of this MARADMIN for review and administrative action.
3.d. Consolidated nominations must be submitted via naval letter format from the G1 level to MMOA-3 at email@example.com and must include the officers EDIPI, full name, MARFOR, and PMOS.
4. Future Panels. MM will release a separate MARADMIN announcing information on future panels at a later date.
5. This MARADMIN is not applicable to the Marine Corps Reserves.
