TRANSFERS AND RECEIPTS
As a PN3 or PN2, your primary duties will include
checking-in and transferring personnel. Depending on
where you are stationed, you might be assigned to
processing receipts and processing transfers. Normally,
the concurrent assignment of both of these jobs occur
at Personnel Support Activity Detachments
(PERSUPPDETs). On the other hand, a striker assigned
to a small ship might be assigned to perform only one
of these duties processing either receipts or transfers.
As you continue gaining knowledge and experience
these tasks will become routine.
You need to become knowledgeable in both of these
areas because you, as a PN, are considered the expert in
This chapter is primarily dedicated to transfers and
receipts; however, it contains information about areas
associated with transfers and receipts. After reading this
chapter, you will be able to identify and describe the
procedures related to projected rotation date (PRD),
including processing receipts and transfers, permanent
change of station (PCS) entitlement policy, PCS
allowances, the Navys Sponsor Program, and case file
establishment and maintenance.
PROJECTED ROTATION DATE
A PRD for a members next duty station is
established when assignment orders are written. The
PRD is based on an individuals paygrade or projected
paygrade (in the case of selectees) at the time orders are
written and the distributable community in which the
member will serve at the new duty station. The PRD is
not affected by advancement or reduction in rate.
Normally, a PRD will not be changed once it is
established unless there is a change made to the
sea/shore tour rotation for the entire community.
RULES FOR ESTABLISHING PROJECTED
The rules used to establish PRDs are contained in
the Enlisted Transfer Manuel (ENLTRANSMAN),
NAVPERS 15909, chapter 3. Some of the general rules
used for establishing PRDs are as follows:
All PRD determinations are based on distribution
rates and/or Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC),
except for overseas areas, which are based on
of Defense (DOD) tour
PRDs never exceecd the estimated date of loss to
PRDs are determined without regard to obligated
service (OBLISERV), except for overseas tours.
PRDs for first-term personnel assigned to type 1
Continental United States (CONUS) shore duty,
equal their normal shore tours (NST), according
to chapter 3 of the ENLTRANSMAN. However,
there are exceptions, and these are covered in
chapter 3 of the ENLTRANSMAN.
Onboard activity PRDs may be preceded by 1
month or exceeded by up to 3 months to satisfy
a manning control authority (MCA)
Onboard activity PRDs may be preceded by 2
months or exceeded by up to 4 months to satisfy
an MCA requirement for E-8 and E-9 personnel.
RECORDING THE PROJECTED
After assignment orders are written by the
appropriate detailer, a members PRD is shortly
thereafter reflected in the current and ultimate activitys
Enlisted Distribution and Verification Report (EDVR).
The PRD is eventually recorded on the NAVPERS
1070/605, page 5, of the enlisted service record when a
member reports for duty to the new duty station. If the
PRD is modified during a members tour of duty, this
change is recorded on the page 5 of the service record
along with the authority and the date the PRD change
VERIFICATION AND CHANGE OF THE
PROJECTED ROTATION DATE
As a PN, you should verify a newly reported
members PRD using your commands EDVR and the
