The Navy Personnel Command (NPC) recently released guidance to the fleet on obligated service (OBLISERV) requirements. NPC policy states Sailors must obtain the required OBLISERV within 30 days of receipt of orders and prior to executing permanent change of station (PCS) orders. If OBLISERV has not been met 35 days after orders have been released, then a general administration (GENADMIN) note will be sent to all applicable commands. This GENADMIN will advise Sailors to expedite reenlistment/extension, let NPC know if there are any constraints, or if an extension waiver is required. The new guidance provides predictability to both the Sailor and the detailers. For more information, read MILPERSMAN 1306-106.
