** These are points gained in the Recruiting effort, must be accompanied by an Recruiting Station letter.
*** An endorsement letter by the CO has to accompany the letter from the Recruiting Command recommending promotion.
20. Promotions Zeroed Out Composite Scores
Each command must pull a zeroed out composite score roster from ODSE or from the IPAC website on a quarterly basis after the new composite scores have posted in MCTFS.
Have your S-1 personnel provide you a roster of Marines with a zeroed out composite score quarterly.
These rosters must be reviewed in order to determine what caused the Marine’s composite score to zero out.
The missing data must be obtained and reported via MOL Training Management System (TMS) or unit diary. Your S-3 personnel can update most of these deficiencies via the TMS in MOL.
21. Promotions The S-1 must request the IPAC report a re-compute composite score entry via the unit diary once the missing information has posted in MCTFS.
A remedial promotion request must be submitted at this point if your Marine has the score.
These rosters must be maintained in the command’s promotion folder along with annotations that show exactly what action was taken to correct the zeroed out composite scores.
22. Promotions Promotion Recommendations
All Marines who are not recommended for promotion must have their entries certified by the Commanding Officer with promotion authority in MOL by the 15th of each month. Company Commanders do not have this authority.
In the Commanding Officers absence (Annual Leave, TAD, etc.), the Officer with Acting authority may certify these entries in MOL (must use the Acting permissions).
S-1 personnel must print out these certified not rec’s prior NLT 15th of the month and place in the command’s promotion folder.
23. Promotions Promotion Restrictions
All documentation associated with Promotion Restrictions that are covered in paragraph 1204 of the Enlisted Promotion Manual, must be submitted to the IPAC for unit diary reporting.

If this action is not taken, the Marine will begin to receive pay for the new grade even if he or she is not promoted by the unit.
A certified copy of this roster must be printed NLT the U/E date and placed in the command’s promotion folder.
25. Promotions Delete as Erroneous Promotions
A letter must be signed by the Commanding Officer and forwarded to the IPAC for any Marine that the Commanding Officer did not certify the will not promote entry in MOL on time and does not wish to promote.
A signed copy of this letter must be placed in the command’s promotion folder.
26. Promotions Marine On Line
The Commanding Officer may sign a not recommended for promotion or a will not promote roster and forward it to the IPAC for unit diary reporting in any case where Marine On-Line is unavailable.

27. Promotions Page 11 Entries
A page 11 entry must be generated for all Marines that are not recommended for promotion, have a will not promote entry reported, and all periods of promotion restriction. The 6105 entry for assignment to the BCP program fulfills this requirement for BCP Marines.
All page 11’s must be provided to the IPAC for tracking; they will then ensure that they are placed in the Marine’s SRB.
A copy of each page 11 entry must be place into the command’s promotion folder.
28. Promotions BCP Program
The command must track the status of these Marines in order to ensure that they are properly assigned, removed, and extended on the program. This can be done via an ODSE roster or by obtaining a copy of the report from the IPAC webpage.
Assignment to BCP puts a Marines in a not-eligible for promotion status. Failure to manage the BCP program can result in erroneous promotions or remedial promotions
29. Promotions Promotion Authority for Split Commands
If the Commanding Officer is forward deployed and has a Rear Det OIC, (RDO) he cannot give an “Acting” letter for that OIC to effect promotions.
Conveying Acting authority in the succession of command in Navy Regulations Chapter 10 means that the Commander is relinquishing all authority as Commander to the next in the chain of command. This is not occurring in the above example.
30. Promotions To authorize the RDO as a “second” Commanding Officer for those not deployed, the Commander must get special permission from the Judge Advocate of the Navy for the RDO to conduct Special Courts Martial. This also conveys promotion and reduction authority to the RDO.
This must direct the amount of time this authority is needed and be approved before NJP’s and promotions for the RDO can be conducted.
Contact the IPAC Promotions section to obtain examples of this request.
31. Frequently Used Letters The following letters are frequently utilized by the Command Support Branch; examples can be located under the “Tools” section at the following link:https://portal.marforres.usmc.mil/sites/mfr/hq/g1/ipac/default.aspx
