The U.S. Navy's active duty and Reserve senior chief builder (BU), engineering aide (EA) and steelworker (SW) general ratings will now be combined into the constructionman senior chief (CUCS). The first CUCS selection boards will be the fiscal year 2017 boards, to convene Feb. 29 for Reserves and April 18 for active duty. All valid letters to the board received from prior BUCS, EACS and SWCS candidates will be considered in the CUCS competitive group. All billets previously coded as BUCS, EACS and SWCS will now be coded as CUCS and available for any CUCS to fill. A frequently asked questions information sheet is posted on the Enlisted Community Managers' webpage. Point of contact for this matter is LCDR Khalid Woods, at 901-874-2037/DSN 882.
