3. AY22 Assignment Candidates:
a. Members who have been assigned to the same unit for
more than five (5) years and desire a new assignment may
submit an e-resume.
b. Members who relocate their primary residence to a
location beyond a Reasonable Commuting Distance (RCD) to
their current assignment must submit an e-resume,
regardless of rotation date. An endorsement in DA is required
(CO, XO, or SRO) and members must ensure address has been
updated in Direct Access. Continuing in a current assignment
is an available option, but other assignment preferences must
be included in the e-resume.
c. Members serving on long term ADOS orders that
terminate in 2022 MUST apply for a SELRES assignment, unless
orders are involuntary T-10 orders. Members who do not
apply for assignment will be transferred to the Individual
Ready Reserve (IRR). Members in the IRR may request a change
in Reserve Component Category (RCC) and compete for positions
at anytime.
4. Reasonable Commuting Distance: REF A, Article 5.C.
describes policy regarding RCD. If there are no vacant
positions available within RCD, members may voluntarily
accept assignment to positions outside of the 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 for
Junior Enlisted 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.
8. Members who request a new SELRES assignment in AY22
must comply with the timeline in paragraph 11. E-resumes
submitted outside of the submission period will only be
considered based on the following:
a. Member is relocating and their new residence is
outside RCD.
b. Member is requesting a critical fill assignment
(e.g., PSU, Strike Team) within RCD.
9. Junior enlisted personnel shall consider all positions
applicable to their rating, within RCD, as assignment
options when crafting DA e-resume Member Comments. Members
are strongly encouraged to contact their Assignment Officer
(AO) to make certain that all possible assignment options
are explored. For e-resume guidance refer to the PSC-RPM-2
website at:
-7UOWDXuKFOCg%3d%3d. To ensure that an e-resume endorsement
is completed on time, members should notify their chain of
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
10. For assignment guidance refer to the PSC-RPM website
denoted in paragraph 1.
