Commanding Officers/Officers exercising administrative control may promote the personnel listed below, effective on the dates indicated. 2. Members are categorized by the promotion list on which they were selected. Prior to promotion, Commanding Officers must ensure compliance with Para 3.A.12 of Ref A for ADPL promotions to O-2 through O-6, Para 3.B.6 of Ref A for ADPL promotions to Chief Warrant Officer, and section 7.A.10 of Ref B for IDPL promotions. Commanding Officers must also ensure compliance with the provisions of Ref C, unless an exemption has been granted. If promotion is delayed, Commanding Officers must notify PSC (OPM-1) or (RPM), PPC, and SPO prior to the authorized promotion date. 3. If a promotion is delayed under these provisions, further proceedings under Chapter 1 of Ref D or Section 8.A. of Ref B will depend upon the circumstances leading to the delay. When an officer whose promotion has been delayed subsequently meets the standards for promotion, Commanding Officers should contact PSC (OPM-1) or (RPM) and request authority to promote the officer. PSC (OPM-1) or (RPM) will authorize promotion with a date of rank at the time the officer would have been promoted had the promotion not been delayed. For IDPL officers, pay and allowances of the grade to which promoted are authorized from the effective date of the appointment, not the date of rank. 4. As per Article 1.C.9 of Ref D, acceptance of promotion obligates officers to serve two years time in grade (TIG) prior to voluntary retirement. The TIG requirement does not apply to an officer resigning his or her commission. 5. The following promotions are authorized: NAME LIST DOR UNIT SPO To Commander: Jenks, James A.

LT promotions normally occur 30 months from the LTJG date of rank. LTJG promotions normally occur 18 months from the ENS date of rank. IAW 14 USC 736, all IDPL officers will be promoted on the same date as their running mate. Law limits the number of LCDR and above promotions, and the number is authorized each year by Commandant. Each controlled grade can only comprise a certain percentage of the total officer corps. Even if the Coast Guard has vacant billets in a controlled grade, we can only promote officers until we reach our authorization cap. The authorized number of officers in each controlled grade is determined every year in May after the Academy class graduates and the Coast Guard officer corps is at its largest. Promotion numbers for controlled grades are significantly larger during the summer months due to the higher number of officer separations during these months. 12. POC for Reserve Officers is CDR John D. Hughes PSC (RPM-1) (202) 795-6517. POC for Regular Officers is LT Luke Strittmatter PSC (OPM-1E) (202) 795-6443. 13. Released by: CAPT G. T.
