The U.S. Navy has announced several changes to the 2017 Meritorious Advancement Program (MAP) that will expand commanding officers' ability to advance top performing Sailors. This year, MAP will account for approximately 10 percent of all E4-E6 advancements with 4,199 MAP quotas. MAP open season will last from July 1 - Aug. 31. Policy changes include: (1) increasing the number of Unit Identification Codes (UICs) receiving quotas; (2) eliminating Time in Rate (TIR) requirements for E4 and E5 Sailors; (3) commanding officers may MAP any Sailor in a subordinate UIC; (4) MAP will be opened to Selected Reserve (SELRES) Sailors; and (5) controlled rate quota requests must be submitted no later than June 1, 2017.
