who attrite from DEP. Stations and zones will not
lose credit for the NROTC accession. NRDs, however,
must replace the attrite. Any of the categories, with
the exception of accessions (at the NRD and Area
levels), may be recouped for the quarter or FY if the
deficit is made up. Figure 5-9 shows the same report
on the district level. Notice the district recap sheet
includes DEP slope objective (DSO) instead of work
force and has an additional column for accession goal
Station and Zone Competition
New contract attainment is competition between
stations and used for all NRD zones. Local award and
incentive programs may also be initiated. Stations
compete based on their respective RAFs, Station size
categories are as follows:
Small station. RAF of 2.5 or less
Medium station. RAF of greater than 2.5 and
equal to or less than 4.5
Large station. RAF of greater than 4.5
NRDs may subdivide stations within the district to
reward more than one winner in each size category.
Zones are evaluated and compete solely on new
contract attainment regardless of size.
District and Area Competition
District competition within the Area is based on
new contract attainment with the addition of DEP
slope objective (DSO), admirals emphasis, and
shipping attainment. Area competition is identical to
the districts competition.
DSO. DSO is the number of contracts that
need to be DEPped this month to ship within the next
3 months in order to reach the ideal DEP slope of 90
percent, 80 percent, and 70 percent for the first,
second, and third out-month, respectively.
ADMIRALS EMPHASIS. The Admirals
emphasis column is used by COMNAVCRUITCOM to
emphasize immediate critical elements. This category
is issued as required.
