consultants are listed in the Manual of Navy Officer
Manpower and Personnel Classifications, volumes I
and II, NAVPERS 15839-G.
To assist CNO and BUPERS in executing their
responsibilities with regard to enlisted manpower and
personnel, enlisted rating advisors are designated from
among the Deputy Chiefs of Naval Operations,
commanders of systems commands, and heads of other
offices as required. Each rating and Navy enlisted
classification (NEC) code is assigned a primary advisor
and, if necessary, a technical advisor to provide
operational and technical expertise in the occupational
areas in which a rating is involved. The assigned enlisted
rating/NEC advisors we listed in volumes I and II of the
Manual of Navy Enlisted Manpower and Personnel
Classifications and Occupational Standards, NAVPERS
Whenever significant change requests are
approved, OPNAV prepares and distributes a new
Manpower Authorization, OPNAV Form 1000/2.
However, minor changes inmost cases do not justify the
cost of the printing and distribution of a new form. In
these cases most of the data reflected in the officer billets
authorized may be verified by checking the Officer
Distribution Control Report (ODCR).
Note the transaction number on the ODCR and
compare it with the transaction number on your
activitys latest MPA. If the number is different, a minor
change has been probably approved that did not warrant
reprinting a new MPA.
Block descriptions for the OPNAV Form 1000/2 are
located in the Manual of Navy Total Force Manpower,
OPNAVINST 1000.16G. All codes used in the
Manpower Authorization, 0PNAV Form 1000/2, and
the Manpower Authorization Change Requests,
OPNAV 1000/4A, are located in the following

BILLET REQUIREMENTS REVIEW
Proper classification of authorized billets is
extremely important in managing the Navys overall
manpower and personnel resources. The numbers of
billets throughout form the basis for strength planning,
recruiting, training, and promoting military personnel.
Billet reviews are conducted periodically at the
CNO level. In these reviews, decisions are made based
on the existing classification of each billet as indicated
on MPAs. Billets that are improperly classified become
the lowest priority billets in the category in which they
are classified. Consequently, if the objective is to delete
or redistribute billets, the billets improperly classified
are prime candidates for deletion or reprogramming.
The billet requirements and billet classifications
within each Navy activity should be specifically
reviewed at the activity level annually to guarantee the
deletion of unnecessary billets and the proper
classification of each authorized billet. If changes are
required, a Manpower Authorization Change Request,
OPNAV Form 1000/4A, should be submitted.
Valid requirements for billet changes that will
require the movement of personnel should be identified
and requested as early as feasible to permit orderly
personnel management. Normally, 12 months are
required after final billet approval before new or
changed billets can be filled with personnel.
Compensation should normally be required for the
requesting activity, manpower claimant, or subspecialty
consultant for approval of the following:
l Increase in the number of billets.
. Increase in the billet paygrade.
. Billet designator or rating change.
. Increase in graduate education subspecialty
requirements. These requirements must be prioritized to
assist the manpower claimant and CNO in decisions in
the event the request can be only partially approved.
. Special categories, such as
geographic locations, and counselors.
