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 3 of Ref A or Chapter 7 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. 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. Obligated
service requirements for Reserve officers accepting promotion are
contained in Ref D.

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)
