A. Reserve Policy Manual, COMDTINST M1001.28 (series)
1. This message announces the AY22 Reserve assignment
season kickoff and provides important guidelines and
information for Reserve Chief Warrant Officers (CWOs) and
Senior Enlisted personnel (E7-E9) competing for
assignment, their command cadre or supervisors, and Reserve
personnel at large. Supplemental information on the
assignment process is available in the AY22 Reserve Personnel
Assignment guide, located on the PSC-RPM website:
Personnel-Management-PSC-RPM/RPM-2/AY22/. Request widest
dissemination of this message.
2. Shopping lists: PSC-RPM-2 is developing and validating
AY22 shopping lists, which will identify anticipated
billet vacancies. Updates will be published on the PSC-
RPM website.
a. Validation: Unit commanders should verify the
accuracy and status of each reserve position on their
PAL as reflected in Direct Access (DA), along with anticipated
vacancies. The Command Concerns process guide is located on
the PSC-RPM website denoted in paragraph 1. Select the
"Command Concerns" link after expanding the "RPM-2" tab
on the left. Submit discrepancies or comments to the
appropriate PSC-RPM Assignment Officer (AO) via Command
Concerns by 29 Oct 21.
b. Availability: Shopping lists will be released
OOA 18 Nov 21.
3. AY22 Assignment Candidate Pool:
a. The primary candidate pool consists of members
reported in DA as tour complete in 2022, members who will
change Reserve Component Category (RCC) to Selected
Reserve (SELRES), members advanced to E7 prior to the e-
resume submission deadline noted in paragraph 10, members
in reprogrammed positions, members projected to be
released from active duty, and members in billets with
more than one member assigned. This includes Reserve
Chief Warrant Officers and senior enlisted personnel
serving on long-term Active Duty for Operational Support
(ADOS) who desire a SELRES assignment following their
release from active duty. PSC-RPM-2 will track additions
and deletions to the pool created by promotions,
advancements, separations, position reprogramming and
other actions.
b. Members serving on long-term ADOS orders that
terminate at any time during 2022 are highly encouraged
to apply for assignment. Members who do not apply for
assignment will be transferred to the Individual Ready
Reserve (IRR) and may participate in the AY22 Off-season
cycle or the AY23 assignment cycle.
c. PSC-RPM will adhere to tour completion dates when
considering assignments. Members generally will not
rotate prior to completion of their tours. However, early
rotations are sometimes necessary to meet Service needs.
4. Reasonable Commuting Distance (RCD): REF A, Article 5.C
describes policy regarding RCD. As a member becomes more
senior, opportunities for assignment within RCD become
increasingly scarce. If a member wants to continue to serve
in a SELRES status, the member should consider assignments
beyond RCD.
5. Members who will voluntarily accept orders beyond RCD
shall include the following statement in their e-resume
member comments: “I, (rank and name) on (date), understand
the Reasonable Commuting Distance (RCD) policy stipulated
in COMDTINST M1001.28 (series), and will voluntarily accept
orders beyond RCD.”
6. IAW REF A, Article 5.E.1., members may be assigned to
a Deployable Specialized Forces (DSF) unit without their
consent if they live within RCD of these units and not
enough qualified volunteers are identified. DSF units
include the Port Security Units (PSUs), Strike Teams and
Naval Expeditionary Combat Commands. Members who have not
been assigned to a DSF unit during their career are strongly
encouraged to apply. Members who have been assigned to a DSF
unit for more than 5 years may apply for reassignment through
the normal assignment process.
7. Members who decline orders are subject to a transfer
to the IRR, Standby Reserve, or may request retirement or
separation, IAW REF A, Article 5.A.10. Members who do not
successfully compete for an AY22 assignment will be
transferred to the IRR and may compete in AY23. Members who
do not submit an e-resume IAW paragraph 10 will be
transferred to the IRR and may compete for an AY23 assignment.
8. For e-resume guidance refer to the CG PPC DA II website
To ensure that an e-resume endorsement is completed on
time, members should notify their command when an e-
resume requiring command endorsement has been submitted.
The current version of DA will not notify the endorser of
the request and does not allow late e-resume submission.
9. For assignment guidance refer to the PSC-RPM website
denoted in paragraph 1.
