1. This ALCOAST lists the anticipated AY20 Training Allowance Billet (TAB)
allocations for military, non-senior service school, and academic programs in
support of Coast Guard advanced education requirements. Congress has not
released Coast Guard appropriations for FY20. Accordingly, this ALCOAST
anticipates TAB allocations based on FORCECOM projections from previous
Coast Guard allocations in FY18 and FY19. Anticipated AY20 TAB allocations
in this ALCOAST remain subject to future modification by FORCECOM. Per
REFs (A) and (B), FORCECOM anticipates allocating 172 TABs for AY20.
2. The following alphabetical list identifies undergraduate and graduate
programs of study, program manager and the anticipated number of

7. Out Year Expectations: Fiscal stewardship in Advanced Education requires
participation from all stakeholders. FORCECOM relies on our customers to do
their part to reduce the total appropriated cost of an advanced education
opportunity. As an informed partner in the Advanced Education Program,
FORCECOM is required to operate the program at the level to which it is funded.
Starting in FY20, tighter fiscal controls on waivers will be enacted, making
a higher-cost school waiver the exception vice the norm. No program can ever
be guaranteed an Advanced Education Training Allowance Billet (AdvEd TAB) or
set of TABS, however, cost-reduction measures will make your program more
competitive during the annual AdvEd TAB Panel and waiver process.
Additional guidance will be communicated to programs SEPCOR outlining a
strategic way forward to continue to meet the demands for an educated workforce,
while accounting for the inflationary nature of Advanced Education opportunities.
