1. Approved NAF Year 2018 MWR budgets are due to the cognizant authority for MWR
purposes no later than 30 Nov 2017 IAW Ref A.  Cognizant authorities other than the
Community Services Command (CSC) will establish appropriate due dates to ensure the
timely submissions of budgets required to CSC.
2. A Per Capita distribution of 50 dollars per active duty billet is planned for 2018.  The
final Per Capita distribution will be determined by the Non-Pay Compensation Board of
Directors in March 2018.
3. Although the budget submission timelines may differ, the planning factors below also
apply for other Nonappropriated Fund Instrumentalities (NAFIs) and include:
    a. An 8.5 percent employer share of base pay for NAF employees enrolled in the NAF
retirement system for NAF Year 2018. This rate is subject to change in 2018 as updated
actuarial information is received on the retirement account.
    b. Based upon locality, a 1.9 percent cost of living increase is projected.
    c. The employer’s share of health care premiums for eligible NAF employees is
estimated to increase by 16 percent over the employer’s share from last year.
    d. Units with MWR NAF employees receiving workers compensation payments will be
expected to pay the first 5,500 dollars for the employee’s paid claim.
    e. Commands with NAF employees that desire to participate in the NAF Tuition
Assistance program must budget for the amount they want to support this program in
    f. Commands having CSC approval and using credit/debit cards as a method of
accepting payment must budget for their prorated expenses associated with Payment
Card Industry (PCI) compliance.  This prorated amount will be based upon the 2018
expense for the cyber insurance premium.  Units having this expense may use estimates
from the previous 2017 billing cycle.  In addition and IAW Ref B, units with CSC
authorization to accept payment cards within the MWR/NAFI programs must complete
the appropriate Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) based on the method the command
is accepting payment cards and have the SAQ attested to by a Qualified Security
Assessor.  An estimate for this service may be obtained from the CSC point of contact
Mr. Jim Palmer at or (757) 842-4907.  
     g. For NAF Year 2018, commands with Category B and C MWR Activities will be
assessed a prorated share of the MWR NAF liability insurance premium required to
manage the risk associated with providing these activities.  Units having these expenses
may use actual expenses incurred in 2017 as 2018 estimates.  These expenses, and those
identified in subparagraph 3.f., above, need to be attributed to the activities that require
the expenses.
