BUPERS-328 (Community Management Support Branch) is the Navy's sole Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) award authority outside of the Corporate enterprise Training Activity Resource System (CeTARS).

Emails must be encrypted for PII protection. We have 'look-up' capabilities for USN/TAR and SSN data is not needed if we have a full name, rate and attached UIC on the form. SELRES pose a different problem and if the member is not in FLTMPS, then full SSN is required. Any questions or issues, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NEC Manual (NAVPERS 18068F) is published 4 times a year - January, April, July and October. See link for download.
