Citizenship and Security Clearance Requirements Some ratings require a person to be a U.S. citizen and  be  eligible  to  receive  a  clearance  for  access  to classified  information.    The  Advancement  Manual (BUPERSINST  1430.16)  and   Manual  of  Navy Enlisted Manpower and Personnel Classifications and Occupational Standards (NAVPERS 18068) list those ratings. Generally,  only  U.S.  citizens  are  assigned sensitive  duties  or  granted  access  to  classified information.  About  one-half  of  the  Navy’s  ratings requires  access  to  classified  information.    For  that reason, immigrant aliens generally may not enter into ratings  requiring  access  to  classified  information unless they expect to gain citizenship. Q2. What  periodic  CNO  NAVADMIN  message governs entry into different ratings? Q3. The ratings that require persons to be a U. S. citizen can be found in what publication? Q4. Approximately  what  fraction  of  the  Navy’s ratings   requires   access   to   classified information? FACTORS THAT DETERMINE THE FINAL MULTIPLE SCORES FOR ADVANCEMENTS Advancements  are  not  automatic.    Although members must meet certain requirements to qualify for advancement,  meeting  those  requirements  doesn’t guarantee  advancement.   Certain  factors  are  used  to determine  which  members,  out  of  all  of  those qualified, will actually be advanced in rate. After the member has qualified for advancement and passed the Navywide advancement examination, the final multiple score (FMS) is computed.  The FMS computation is based on three factors:  performance + experience  + knowledge.  Performance is shown in the person’s  day-to-day  performance,  work  ethic, achievements, and so forth, and is documented in their performance evaluations.  Experience is indicated by elements such as length of service (LOS) and service in paygrade  (SIPG).    Knowledge  is  reflected  as examination performance.  Candidates may also earn PNA  (Passed,  but  Not  Advanced)  points  that  are calculated into the FMS.  PNA points are awarded to candidates who pass the exam but are not advanced, and in some cases, for a relatively high performance mark average (PMA).   FMS results for all candidates are rank-ordered from the top to the bottom score – or from  the  most  qualified  to  the  least  qualified.      For example:  There are 500 candidates for BM3 who meet all eligibility criteria for a given advancement cycle. However,  there  are  only  400  vacancies  to  be  filled. The  rank-ordering  process  identifies  the  top  400 (based on FMS) who will actually be advanced. The  E4/E5,  E6,  and  E7  columns  under  the Maximum Points (%) heading of table 5-1 show the maximum  examination  standard  score  is  80.    The examination standard score points count 35 percent of the  E4/E5  total  FMS.    The  performance  factor  for E4/E5  allows  for  a  maximum  of  70  points,  or  30 percent of the FMS.  The remaining 35 percent of the total FMS is based on a combination of the LOS (total active service [TAS]-SIPG), SIPG, awards, and PNA points.  For the awards, or experience factor, a person may  receive  an  additional  1  point  for  attaining  an associate’s  degree  or  additional  2  points  for  a bachelor’s degree. Table  5-2  explains  the  FMS  computation  for  a candidate competing for advancement to E-6 given the following FMS values: Q5. After a member has qualified for advancement and  passed  the  Navywide  advancement  exam, the final multiple score (FMS) is computed.  The FMS computation is based on what factors? Q6. What are the maximum standard scores for the E-4, E-5, E-6, and E-7 examinations? REQUIREMENTS FOR REGULAR CANDIDATES The Department of Defense (DOD) prescribes the minimum  total  active  federal  military  service (TAFMS)  a  person  must  have  to  compete  as  a REGULAR  CANDIDATE  for  advancement.    The Advancement  Manual  provides  detailed  information about  TAFMS.    The  TAFMS  requirements  for 5-4 Examination standard score (SS) = 56 Performance mark average (PMA) = 3.65 Length of service (YR/MO) (LOS) = 08/03 Service in paygrade (YR/MO) (SIPG) = 03/06 Awards = 2.0 PNA Pts. = 1.5
