Enlisted Detailers manage Navy enlisted distribution, personnel policy, training quota management and career progression for active and reserve enlisted personnel.   They are the Sailors’ advocate in the detailing process.

Enlisted Placement Management is the command representative in the detailing process and acts as the Manning Control Authorities’ agent.  They monitor deployment readiness by UIC, track distributable manning by rating, and set MNA with MCA-directed priorities monthly.

Enlisted Community Managers (ECM) work in support of CNO, N1, and Navy Enterprises to provide accession, promotion, retention, and conversion plans while utilizing force shaping tools and special pays and incentive programs to meet the Navy's end-strength demand signals for individual ratings and the Navy aggregate.

The ECM’ page shows what RPs do, the requirements on becoming an RP, our Community Summary, and our Career Path.  

Sailors are expected to serve their complete sea or shore tours as assigned.  MILPERSMAN 1306-116 (PRESCRIBED SEA TOUR (PST) / NORMAL SHORE TOUR (NST)) and NAVADMIN 190/16 (SEA SHORE FLOW (SSF) ENLISTED CAREER PATH) states the policy governing tour lengths.

Once a Sailor commences his/her sea tour or shore tour, they are expected to complete the tour through their established Projected Rotation Date (PRD).   There are few exceptions to the rule to either shorten or extend your PRD.   Exceptions require an approved Enlisted Personnel Action Request (NAVPERS 1306/7) by your Commanding Officer and personal contact with the Detailer.

Current Sea/Shore Flow:

Tour Sea Shore
1st Tour 42 Months 36 Months
All Other Tours 36 Months 36 Months

The Career Waypoints (C-WAY) system is a corporate Information Technology system which provides a mechanism for matching personnel inventory to requirements with the best performing Sailors.  It serves as a service continuum system and is designated as a long-term force management tool, balancing manning across rates, ratings, Active Component (AC), Full Time Support (FTS), and Reserve Component (RC) through Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS) control of the reenlistment and enlistment contract extension quotas.  For more info visit and meet with your Command Career Counselor.

Billet Based Distribution (BBD)
Billet Based Distribution (BBD) is an application within the Career Management System - Interactive Detailing (MNA) system.  The BBD initiative focuses on enabling the Navy to better manage force structure and readiness by more accurately matching Sailors and their unique skill sets to individual billets.  Please visit the BBD Website at

Thank you for your service as a Sailor and for your service as an RP.  Be safe out there.
