The U.S. Navy has eliminated seven shipboard collateral duties in and has tasked a working group to further review all collateral duties for the potential to be eliminated or consolidated. The seven collaterals identified for immediate elimination are Athletics Officer, Library Officer, Health Benefits Advisor, Community Relations Project Officer, Enlisted Safety Committee (Safety petty officers have not been eliminated, but the Committee will be combined into the Enlisted Safety Council), Knowledge Management Officer, and Voting Officer. A working group will conduct a comprehensive review of all collateral duties and will report its findings directly to CNO later this summer. Feedback at may be submitted here.
