From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs

WASHINGTON (NNS) — The Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP) released the Cycle 200 active-duty advancements Nov. 19 for the fall 2008 exam cycle.

Overall advancement opportunity held steady for the fourth straight exam cycle, with total opportunity decreasing by only .56 percent, from 24.69 percent to 24.13 percent.

Sailors taking the E-4 test saw their advancement opportunity increase from 42.54 percent to 43.94 percent (+1.40 percent), while E-5 quotas stayed stable at 22.60 percent (-.68 percent), and E-6 test takers saw opportunity decrease slightly from 12.14 percent to 10.75 percent (-1.39 percent).

Rear Adm. Dan Holloway, director of CNP’s policy branch, said “I’m happy to see advancement remain steady once again. We saw a smooth trend from last year to this year, and given our increased retention through all paygrades, that’s very encouraging news.”

“We’ll be watching advancement very closely in 2009 and beyond,” Holloway said. “If we continue to see increased retention, especially in the senior pay grades, upcoming advancement cycles could see a decrease in opportunity, especially at the E-7 to E-9 level.”
