1. 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 
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.

9. Officers promoted to the grade of Commander or below during a

Captain only if more than 182 days have elapsed since their previous 
OER submission.

11. 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.

795-6517. POC for Regular Officers is LT Luke Strittmatter PSC (OPM-1E)
