The new Detailing Marketplace Assignment Policy (DMAP) rewards Sailors in sea-intensive ratings who stay Navy and stay on sea duty. This policy will improve upon the existing Sea Shore Flow policy to better man the Fleet.
DMAP Phase I began 1 March 2022 and included four of the 16 sea-intensive ratings. Those rates were ABF, ABH, GSM, and CS.
DMAP Phase II began 1 December 2022 and included the following four rates: MM (non-nuke), IC, DC, and RS.
These 8 ratings are now in the DMAP assignment program, with more to follow in FY-23 as we strive to improve sea duty manning around the fleet.
Fundamentally, DMAP rewards Sailors who choose to stay on sea duty by establishing a DMAP 4+3 sea duty option for sea-intensive ratings.
The DMAP 4+3 benefits apply to Sailors who complete a 4-year Apprentice (E4 and below) Sea Tour followed immediately by a 3-year Journeyman (E5) Sea Tour. These incentives include:
Additional money through Detailing Marketplace Incentive Pay (DMIP)
Early advancement through Advance to Position (A2P)
Early advancement through Command Advance to Position (CA2P)
Priority placement for follow-on shore duty assignment through Continuous Sea Duty Credit (CSDC)
DMIP: Paid monthly throughout entire 3 year Journeyman tour. $200 to $800 per month depending on location and sea duty type.
A2P: E4 eligible (PNAed on E5 exam) applies for 3 year Journeyman assignment and advances upon arrival.
CA2P: An E4 eligible (PNAed on E5 exam) Sailor is nominated by their CO to fill a vacant or soon to be vacant PO2 billet onboard the
current sea duty activity. All CA2P requests will be submitted in MNA via a Member Realignment Request (MRR). For procedural
assistance, please review the MNA User's Guide (pages 212-217), which is available under the Quick Links header.
CSDC: Adds 1 credit per month of sea duty. Resets to 0 upon transfer to shore duty. Provides priority in the detailing marketplace.
All incentives can be combined with Career Sea Pay, Sea Pay Premium and SRB.
