3.a. E-JDA. E-JDA Review Boards occur to determine whether the submissions should be deemed joint credit of the served time due to significant experience in joint matters. Some experiences outside the billets on the Joint Duty Assignment List (JDAL) develop a cadre of officers with the skills to provide strategic-level advice for the achievement of national strategic and military objectives. An E-JDA is a non-JDAL assignment or experience that demonstrates an officer’s mastery of knowledge, skills, and abilities in joint matters. E-JDAs may be shorter in duration; therefore, they may be aggregated to achieve the equivalent of a full joint tour of duty in a Standard JDA. The E-JDA process will enable a point system to recognize officers for their joint experiences in a systematic, progressive manner. Joint experiences will accrue points toward three successive levels of joint qualifications and provide commanders a greater degree of consistency in assessing the capabilities of each officer. This will enhance the DoD’s ability to ensure the appropriate mix of joint-experienced officers in each organization. The E-JDA board will identify joint matters experience by assessing the documented experiences as defined by Reference D and further explained in References A and B. Eligible Officers may submit their request for experience points through the self-nomination process listed below.
4.a. Eligibility Criteria
4.a.1. Officers must be promoted to the paygrade of O3 or higher in order to apply for E-JDA.
4.a.2. Officers shall not self-nominate experiences for consideration until “tour complete” or “experience complete.”
4.a.3. Officers must submit their self-nomination experience through the joint qualification system to the Marine Corps JOMO no later than 12 months from the completion of their joint experience. Late submissions will not be accepted without an a waiver request from the officer's first General Officer/Flag Officer in their chain of command.
4.a.4. The officer's self-nomination experience must cover a time period of 30 days or more to be considered valid.
4.a.5. The inclusive dates of experience include only arrival and departure dates to the location of the actual experience. Departure date from home base and subsequent return date, travel, or training dates must be excluded.
4.a.6. The assignment and the preponderance of duties must have direct relevance to the statutory definition of joint matters.
4.b. Ineligibility Criteria.
4.b.1. Officers cannot nominate for student, fellowship, or intern experiences that are affiliated with an educational, degree granting, or research program.
4.b.2. Officers cannot nominate for experience while serving in a JDAL position (these positions are already approved for joint credit).
4.b.3. Officers in the paygrade of O1 or O2.
5. Submission Requirements. The Services and Joint Staff will return any submission that does not comply with stated policy.
5.a. Joint Experience Summary (JES). Complete the JES to the fullest extent possible in accordance with References A-D. Officers will ensure each self-nomination submission is complete and accurate. The E-JDA board will review the JES to determine whether the experience demonstrates significant experience in joint matters.
5.b. Validating and Supporting Documents. The officer must include the below list of validating documents when completing their self-nomination within the Joint Qualification System.
5.b.1. Fitness reports for the requested period.
5.b.2. Any award citation, summary of action, and/or narrative
for the period being nominated.
5.b.3. Official orders reporting and detaching endorsements to the area(s) of experience requested.
5.b.4. Officer duty history report or position description.
5.b.5. Statement of Wartime Service for the period being nominated.
5.b.6. DD214, if applicable.
5.b.7. Statement of Duties signed letter.
5.b.8. Imminent Danger Pay (IDP). IDP is eligible for an increase in the intensity factor multiplier. Officers must submit a Defense Financial Accounting System adjudicated travel voucher and a Leave and Earnings Statements showing the receipt of IDP for each month of the nominated experience. This documentation will validate actual "boots-on-ground" (BOG) dates at the location where the duty was performed. BOG dates for approved submissions that cannot be verified against supporting documentation post-board will reflect as approved, but with no intensity factor multiplier.
5.b.9. Acquisition Matters. Per Reference A, if the submission is for an experience within the "acquisition matters" portion of the Joint Matters definition, provide documentation that the position filled during the experience was a designated Defense Acquisition Workforce position covered under chapter 87 of Title 10. Example documentation includes proof of tour or training. The experience is not board eligible without this documentation.
5.b.10. Reserve Component. Marine Reserve Orders Writing System documents will be included when capturing periods of annual training and active duty operational support.
5.b.11. Part-time Reserve Component. Include Joint Summary Worksheet.
