The U.S. Navy has announced a new schedule and board sponsor for the biannual Lateral Transfer and Redesignation Board. The board will now be conducted in February and August with Bureau of Naval Personnel, Officer Community Management Branch (BUPERS-3) as the board sponsor. Historically, the board has been held in June and November. The Navy shifted the board to August in order to increase the likelihood that officers receive promotion results prior to the August board results. Additional information will be made available on the NPC Lateral Transfer/Redesignation website.
