WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Senior Enlisted Continuation Board (SECB) results have been posted on Sailors' BUPERS online (BOL) Feb. 10.

Of the 6,683 eligible candidates, 97 percent or 6,462 candidates were selected for continuation and commands have personally notified the 219 Sailors not selected for continuation or in a hold status.

Senior enlisted considered by the FY16 board are classified in one of three categories in BOL:
S - Selected for continuation.
N - Not selected for continuation.
H - Not selected for continuation - In a hold status.

SECB is a performance-driven review of active duty, full-time support and Reserve master chiefs, senior chiefs and chiefs with more than 19 years of service and three years' time-in-grade. The board helps to ensure the highest standards are maintained in the senior enlisted ranks.

The FY16 SECB convened at Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Dec. 7. The board reviewed 6,683 active duty, full-time support and Reserve records; 1,516 chiefs, 2,034 senior chiefs and 2,912 master chiefs.

Active duty and full-time support Sailors not selected for continuation must transfer to the Fleet Reserve or retire by Aug. 31, unless operationally waived by the deputy chief of naval personnel to remain on active duty until Dec.1.

Reserve Sailors must transfer to the Retired Reserve (with or without pay) by Sept. 1. Those with an approved operational waiver from Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command can remain in a drilling status until an approved date of no later than Dec. 1.

The deadline for non-continued Sailors requesting transfer to Fleet Reserve, retirement or Retired Reserve (with or without pay) to NPC has been extended to March 15 from the original date of Jan. 31, announced in NAVADMIN 088/15.

The deadline for submitting operational waivers and readiness appeals has also been extended to March 15. Formats for operational waivers and readiness appeals can be found at www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/boards/enlistedcontinuation/Pages/default....
