Re: Promotion Policy (Admiralty Order 0801-07)


ENLISTED

Enlisted Promotions, up through the Rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer (E-8), are handled by your Commanding Officer. These then get final approval by the First Lord of the Admiralty, but unless TIG is way off, or the appropriate Enlisted Academy Class has not been passed, they will be approved.

Promotions to Master Chief Petty Officer (E-9) and Senior Master Chief Petty Officer (E-10) are done by written recommendation of the Commanding Officer, plus Academic Record and TIG Verification submitted to the Enlisted Promotion Board who will either approve or not approve the promotion.

WARRANT OFFICER

After the initial Monarch’s Warrant is awarded, further Warrant promotions are done by written recommendation of the Commanding Officer, plus Academic Record and TIG Verification submitted to the First Lord of the Admiralty who will either approve or not approve the promotion.

OFFICER

After the Commission as Ensign (O-1) Officer promotions through Captain (Junior Grade) (O-6-A) are done by written recommendation of the Commanding Officer, plus Academic Record and TIG Verification submitted to the Officer Promotion Board who will either approve or not approve the promotion.

FLAG OFFICER

Promotion to Captain of the List (O-6-B) is done by written recommendation of a member of the Admiralty, plus Academic Record and TIG Verification submitted to the Flag Promotion Board who will either approve or not approve the promotion.

Promotion to Commodore (F-1) will occur after the minimum TIG has been met.

Promotion to Rear Admiral of the Red (F-2) will occur after the minimum TIG and the F-2 War College Course has been passed.

Promotion to Vice Admiral of the Red (F-3) and up is done by written recommendation of a member of the Admiralty, plus Academic Record and TIG Verification submitted to the Flag Promotion Board who will either approve or not approve the promotion.

ENLISTED PROMOTION BOARD

The Enlisted Promotion Board shall consist of the First Lord of the Admiralty, the Marshall of the Corps, the Marshall of the Army, the Fifth Space Lord (BuPers) and an elected Senior Master Chief Petty Officer. They will meet every January, April, July & October. A vote of 3 to 2 will confirm Promotion.

OFFICER PROMOTION BOARD

The Officer Promotion Board shall consist of the First Lord of the Admiralty, the Marshall of the Corps, the Marshall of the Army, the Fifth Space Lord (BuPers) and an elected Officer of equal rank to each rank being promoted to. Where two different levels are being voted on, each elected Officer will vote only on their peers. They will meet every January (O-2 & O-4), May (O-3 & O-5) & October (O-6-A). A vote of 3 to 2 will confirm Promotion.

FLAG PROMOTION BOARD

The Flag Promotion Board shall consist of the First Lord of the Admiralty, the Marshall of the Corps, the Marshall of the Army, the Fifth Space Lord (BuPers) and an elected member of the Admiralty. They will meet every January & June. A vote of 3 to 2 will confirm Promotion.

SPECIAL CASES

In some cases, a board will meet to approve a promotion *before* the individual is due for promotion. This will happen is a person has been submitted early. Early promotions will be considered if no more than three months is remaining in TIG and all the Academics have been completed for the rank being promoted to.

BREVET RANK

In some cases, a brevet promotion will be granted to a higher rank (No more than a 2 level jump). This is a temporary promotion which will become permanent after the proper Academic Courses have been completed and when 50% of the TIG for the brevetted rank has been served. Once the rank becomes permanent, the TIG resets, at 25%. (ie. Brevet Promotion from Captain of the List to Rear Admiral becomes permanent after 10 months. You then start as a Rear Admiral of the Red with 5 months automatic seniority. After 5 additional months, you become Rear Admiral of the Green, and after 10 months you are eligible for promotion to Vice Admiral of the Red)

The reason for the longer time in rank is to make up for any TIG you skip in you previous rank and any other rank you may skip.

DEMOTION

Once a rank is awarded, only a gross violation of a member’s civil rights or violation of an Admiralty Order will cause demotion. A Promotion Panel will meet and a vote of 3 to 2 will confirm the Demotion. This is only to be used in the most extreme cases.
