Fellow NOAA Corps officers,
Two important announcements, the FY2020 Officer Career Management Plan (OCMP) and the FY2019 End of Year Package (EOYP), have been released over the last two weeks via CPC Director's Messages. I wanted to highlight them once again here, as both of these are critical to the health of the NOAA Corps and important to NOAA Corps officers to ensure they are managing both their personal and professional lives.
The 2019 EOYP allows CPC to ensure we have the most up to date information. There is such a myriad of systems and processes that are required to be kept current. Your home address is required in several locations to ensure you can be reached in an emergency, your tax information is sent to the right location, and your housing allowance is at the correct level. Ensure your payslips are correct in terms of days of leave used, what kind of retirement system you are in, and current allotments which are just a few items to review at least once every year. Review your assignment history, training history, and augmentation history which are also necessary as this data is used by numerous personnel boards and working groups to make HR decisions for the NOAA Corps. NOAA Corps officers must be aware of their medical and dental status as well as approaching expiration dates, especially those individuals in the upcoming promotion zones.
The FY2020 OCMP lays out the plan for the rest of the fiscal year and into the next regarding accessions, attritions, and promotions. For those of you in a promotion zone, it is especially significant that you pay close attention to the EOYP so all of the necessary documentation the selection board will review to evaluate officers is in your Officer Personnel Folder (OPF) and is up to date. If you have any questions about your OPF in terms of the upcoming promotion boards you should reach out to the Officer Career Management Division Chief, CAPT Jeffrey Taylor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your attention to detail while completing the EOYP and good luck to all officers in the promotion zones.
