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

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 3747, 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 controlled grade
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 LCDR Erin Bennett, PSC (RPM-1) (202)
795-6517. POC for Regular Officers is LT Sara Pepin, PSC (OPM-1E) (202)
