NSW CSRB 2011

BLUF: In order to shape the Naval Special Warfare force, an adjustment to the Critical Skills Retention Bonus was needed. Because the SO and SB communities require different force shaping requirements, the business rules of the new NSW CSRB will specifically target each rate to best meet the needs of the NSW Community.

  • Currently at maximum SEAL production, we require retention of every experienced operator to ensure health of the community and meet EPA

  • Retention of these limited supply/high demand assets is a priority. High rates of deployment over an extended period of time, significant force structure changes, competing demands, and growth in requirements are paramount considerations in retention of these high investment/high return capabilities.

  • Complex global and domestic environments, increasing demand for SOF, and diminished defense resources will continue to challenge NSW’s ability to meet the Nation’s security requirements.

  • Existing shortfalls in YG 14-19 require 90% retention of those year groups.


Csrb background

CSRB BACKGROUND

In December 2004, the Navy instituted the SOCOM Enlisted and Chief Warrant Officer Critical Skills Retention Bonus (CSRB) program. This initiative specifically targets warrant officers and enlisted between 19 and 25 years of service (YOS) and is intended to sustain the health of the NSW community.

  • GOAL: Retain senior operators to provide leadership and expertise both in garrison and on the battlefield

  • FY10: 109 Eligible and 73 Takers

  • AVG take per person: $115,823.00

  • Historical take rate: 73%


So retirement e7 e9 percent of population that retires at a given year of service yos

SO Retirement E7-E9percent of population that retires at a given year of service (YOS)

Pre CSRB Post CSRB

  • Average retirement age of SOs has shifted 3 years to the right

    • NSW retention has INCREASED from 42% to 77% in the 20-25 YOS window

    • Total number of Operators with more than 20 years of experience has INCREASED by 130%

The CSRB has had a DIRECT POSITIVE IMPACT on retaining our retirement eligible SEAL and SWCC operators

Directed FY13+ growth at apprentice level must be offset by strong retention

Existing CSRB has helped to fill the 20-25 YOS requirement

Shortfalls in YOS 14-19 require 90% retention

Need to increase SO incentive to stay past 25 YOS to meet demand for experience


Why change the current csrb

Why Change the Current CSRB ?

The CSRB offered in 2005 does not fully support the needs of the NSW Operator or the needs of the NSW community. Restructuring the Senior Enlisted and CWO NSW CSRB was enabled by a change in US law, allowing CSRB to be paid past 25 years of active service.

  • The average take per operator for the previous CSRB was $116k. By law, the maximum CSRB opportunity is $200k. Maximum bonus opportunity was not realized.

  • Navy policy was shifting away from granting NSW E7s HYT prior to their 19 year mark. Without a HYT waiver, E7s would only be eligible for a $75k bonus under the previous CSRB. They would never have the opportunity to get additional bonus even if they made E8 in their 19th year. Now all E7s can get up to $100k bonus and they will have the opportunity to get $60k more when they make E8.

  • SOCOM Assignment Incentive Pay, $750 a month for SEALs over 25 YOS was not being used as AIP was designed. DOD policy dictates that AIP be used to incentivize specific assignments by UIC vice NEC. The use of AIP across the entire SEAL community was being increasingly scrutinized. Additionally, the AIP moneys were paid monthly. The new NSW CSRB is paid as a lump sum bonus, which is potentially tax free. This means that an E9 SEAL has the potential to be awarded up to $78k up front at the beginning of his 25th YOS. That is well over the combined $45k AIP opportunity ($750 a month for 5 years).
