b. Directors and chiefs of special staff elements through their designa-
ted personnel management representatives must ensure that requisition informa-
tion is updated accurately. Information that is an impacting influence on
desired or required report dates must be articulated to the appropriate
service element. Such information may include, but is not limited to, re-
quirements for security clearances, TDY or TAD enroute training and or
mandatory training through the 1013th Combat Crew Training Squadron (1013
CCTS). Additionally, every attempt must be made to ensure that adequate
coordination is accomplished between each directorate or special staff and the
Jl, thus ensuring some overlap between incumbents and their replacements to
prevent gapping.

3. Policy. A joint duty assignment (JDA) is an assignment to a designated
position within North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) or United
States Space Command (USSPACECOM). General and flag officers are normally
assigned a standard tour length of 2 years. All other officers (0-3 through
0-6) assigned to a JDA position (0-4 through 0-6) serve a standard joint tour
length of 3 years, to receive full JDA credit. The only exception applies to
those officers in their initial joint tour possessing a critical occupational
specialty (COS) may be allowed early release at 24 months without penalty
provided their service designates them as a joint specialty officer (JSO)
nominee by the end of their tour, when necessary for operational requirements
to alleviate shortages or when reassignment timing is critical to the pro-
fessional career development of the officer. However, any COS officer in his
or her initial JDA tour must complete 24 months to receive full JDA credit.

4. Assignment Selection Procedures. The following procedures govern the pro-
cessing of personnel assignment transactions for each service. If there are
any recommended changes to personnel requirements, send requests for Joint
Table of Distribution (JTD) change to Deputy Director for Manpower,
Organization and Plans (JlM).

a. Air Force. The Deputy Director for Joint Services Management, Air
Force Element (JlJF), is the requisition authority for Air Force personnel.

(1) For officer personnel, 13 months before the expiration of
established availability date (15 months when position requires SCI), JIJF
asks the affected staff element to submit an AF Form 934, Requisition
for USAF Officer, (attachment 1), confirming the job description of the
incumbent contained in the JTD and or previous requisition request is still
valid, and if necessary, provide current information and or requirements. In
the case of enlisted personnel, the J1JF, asks the affected staff element to
submit an AF Form 675, Airman Requisition for Departmental - Joint Activities,
(attachment 2), when the incumbent becomes a known loss (i.e., as a result of
permanent change of station (PCS) notification, (8 months before RNLTD)
retirement, or separation).

(2) If the staff element wishes to select a specific person, not in
the Colorado Springs area, a "by-name" request may be submitted including the
individual's name in item 16 of AF Form 934 or in the remarks block of AF Form
675. A letter of justification, signed by the vice director or higher, must
be attached to the form. See paragraph 4d for additional guidance.

USSPACECOM HOI 35-7 14 June 1991 3

(3) The JLJF establishes, whenever possible, reporting dates that
allow for an overlap with the incumbent. However, mandatory training
completed after reporting to the command can be accomplished during the over-
lap period.

(4) Consult the Air Force Element for guidance and or assistance when
completing requisitions.

b. Navy and Marine Corps. JlP is the assignment monitor for Navy and
Marine Corps personnel.

(1) Nine to twelve months before the individual's projected rotation
date (PRD), the assignment personnel at the Navy and Marine Corps headquarters
in Washington DC automatically receive a computer printout describing the
requirements identified on the Navy or Marine Corps manpower authorization
document for that specific billet.

(2) In addition to the above, 9 to 12 months before a Navy officer's
PRD, the Deputy Director for Naval and Civilian Personnel, Navy Element
(JlPN), contacts the appropriate organization to verify if a valid
requirement exist at the individuals PRD.

(3) Assignment of the best qualified personnel is made based on the
criteria identified on the MPA. Therefore, each directorate ensures all
requirements for experience, education, training, and security clearance are
included for each billet on the MPA. Nominations of Naval officers is
submitted to directorates using a Navy/Marine Corps Personnel Data Sheet,
provided by Jl.

(4) The J1PN establishes whenever possible, reporting dates that
allow for an overlap with the incumbent. This overlap period does not include
mandatory training completed after reporting to the command.

(5) If the organization wishes to select a specific person not in the
Colorado Springs area, a by-name request may be submitted in a letter format
addressed to the appropriate service via the Jl, with justification signed by
the deputy director or higher. See paragraph 4d for additional guidance.

(6) The directors may consult the Navy Element for guidance and or
assistance on Navy and Marine Corps assignments.

c. Army. The Deputy Director for Army and Air Force Joint Services
Management, Army Element (JlJA), is the requisition authority for Army
personnel.

(1) Twelve months before an individual's date of availability (DTAV)
the J1JA, contacts the appropriate staff element to determine if a valid
requirement exists at the individual's DTAV. If a valid requirement exists,
J1JA initiates a DA Form 872, Requisition for Individual Officer Personnel,
(attachment 3), for review by the appropriate staff element.

4 USSPACECOM HOI 35-7 14 June 1991

(2) If the staff element wants a specific person, not in the Colorado
Springs area, a "by-name" request may be submitted by including the
individual's name in the remarks block of DA Form 872 and attaching a letter
of justification, signed by the deputy director or higher. See paragraph 4d
below for additional guidance.

(3) Enlisted requirements are verbally coordinated between the
affected staff element and J1JA using the above guidelines.

d. Local By-Name Requests. If the individual being considered for a "by-
name" request is currently assigned in the Colorado Springs area (Fort Carson,
US Air Force Academy (USAFA), Falcon Air Force Base (AFB), and Peterson AFB)
and in another command, follow procedures in Inter-or Intra-Command
Reassignment (attachment 4).

e. Reporting Dates. JlJ establishes, when possible, reporting dates that
allow for an overlap with the incumbent. This overlap period does not include
mandatory training documented on the JTD and previously approved by Joint
Chief of Staff (JCS) and the military services. Mandatory training is
normally completed enroute.

5. Tour Adjustments. Changes to the rotation cycles prescribed in paragraph
3 usually result in an out-of-cycle assignment action. To minimize position
gapping or double billeting, the JlJ or JlP are given as much advance notice
as possible.

a. Extensions. Members wishing to extend tour should submit a request in
their respective service's format, through their director for approval or
disapproval to the appropriate service element. To the extent possible,
request should be initiated 18 months before the incumbent's projected
rotation date. Members may consult their particular service element for
additional guidance and or help before submitting a request.

b. Curtailments. Members wishing to curtail tour should submit a request
through their director for approval and or disapproval to JIJ or JlP as
appropriate. If the request is approved, replacement action is initiated
immediately. Members may consult their particular service element for
additional guidance and or help before submitting a request.

c. Retirement and Separations. Where retirement or separation is contem-
plated before the normal rotation date, consult JlJ or JlP as appropriate for
initiation of out-of-cycle backfill. Services cannot guarantee timely
replacement for requests submitted within 6 months of the requested separation
date.

6. Assignment Review:

a. The Commander in Chief (CINC) is the final approval authority for
assignments of 0-6 and above. Since the Deputy Commander in Chief (DEPCINC)
is involved in the nomination process for incoming or outgoing 0-6s, Jl
ensures directors discuss with the DEPCINC upcoming vacancies and proposed
fills sufficiently early to develop preliminary strategy for assignments. This
dialogue is to occur before formal staff summary sheets are circulated to the
director for coordination with a recommendation for CINC approval.

5 USSPACECOM HOI 35-7 14 June 1991

b. The DEPCINC is the final approval authority for Navy 0-5
nominees. Proposed assignments of Navy 0-5s are coordinated through the
appropriate directorate before DEPCINC review.

C. Directors or their vice directors are the approval authority on as-
signment actions for Army and Air Force personnel in grades 0-5 and below, and
Navy 0-4 and below. All 0-5s and below are selected and assigned against
specific requirements provided in the requisition requests. The JlJ or JlP
notifies affected staff elements of officers and enlisted personnel to be
assigned against their billets. If a staff element has specific, valid
reasons for declining an individual, the director or deputy director must
submit their rationale in writing to JlJ or JlP as appropriate so action can
be initiated to reclama the assignment.

SAMPLE INTER AND OR INTRA-COMMAND REASSIGNMENTS
Al-1. All Air Force and Army personnel assigned to USSPACECOM are identified
for a specific billet by paragraph and line number within the Command by their
respective service. Navy officers are assigned to USSPACECOM by specific
billet sequence code (BCS). Navy officers are assigned to USSPACECOM by
specific billet utilization against a specific paragraph/line number. The
determination of where Navy enlisted personnel are assigned is made by the
Commander, Navy Element. Marine Corps officers and enlisted personnel are
assigned by Headquarters Marine Corps to a specific Marine Corps line number
which corresponds with JTD paragraph/line number. If reassignment to other
intra-command positions is requested or recommended, notify the service ele-
ment who works the action with the respective organizations.
Al-2. Since each military service has specific rules that are followed on any
inter-command reassignment, such moves are coordinated and approved before any
action to move an individual is taken. The JlJ or JlP seeks the authority and
approval from the appropriate military service to make the requested moves.
Al-3. Inter-command moves require the following actions in chronological
order:
a. Gaining command and or organization identifies the requirement and the
individual.
b. Gaining organization requests an availability determination from the
appropriate service element.
C. The JlJ or JlP requests availability from the losing command and, if
the individual is available, requests service approval to reassign the subject
individual to another command.
d. The JlJ or JlP notifies all involved commands and offices of the final
action
