1. IAW Ref A, approved NAF Year 2020 MWR budgets are due to the cognizant authority for MWR purposes no later than 30 Nov 2019.  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 amount of 50 dollars per active duty billet is planned for 2020.  The final Per Capita amount will be determined by the Non-Pay Compensation Board of Directors in March of 2020.
3. Although the budget submission timelines may differ, the planning factors below also apply for other Non-appropriated Fund Instrumentalities (NAFIs) and include:
    a. A 12.5 percent employer share of base pay for NAF employees enrolled in the NAF retirement system for NAF Year 2020. This rate is subject to change in 2020 as updated actuarial information is received on the retirement account.
    b. Based upon locality, a 1.5 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.  Note:  This is with the understanding that the Unit is following the recommendations of the CSC HR staff for their claims.  Units that do not follow CSC HR staff recommendations will absorb 100 percent of their claim costs.
    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 2020.
    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 2019 expense for the cyber insurance premium.  Units having this expense may use estimates from the previous 2019 billing cycle.  In addition, 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 (QSA) or payment card processor.  An estimate for a QSA may be obtained from the CSC point of contact Mr. Jim Palmer at or (757) 842-4907.
     g. For NAF Year 2020, 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 2019 as 2020 estimates.  These expenses, and those identified in subparagraph 3.f., above, need to be attributed to the activities that require the expenses.
