The Navy has announced that Billet Based Distribution (BBD) will be implemented February 2016. BBD will enable the Navy to more efficiently assign personnel in support of warfighting readiness and match Sailors to specific billets based on rate, rating and Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC). BBD will allow command personnel managers, detailers and placement coordinators to more reliably assess a vacant position's impact on readiness. The first BBD enlisted requisition will run Feb. 5. Additionally, the February cycle of CMS-ID, which will use the new BBD capability, will be open for fleet applications Feb. 12. To ensure they are placed in the right job, Sailors should review their records often for accuracy. For more information, visit the NPC BBD webpage or contact your command's placement coordinator.
