Revised Assignment Priority Table
As always, Assignment Year 2013 (AY13) promises to be unique. As in previous years, AO’s publish rating specific timelines and early afloat solicitations that may have other guidance and deadlines for consideration. Please take the time to review these messages and keep a sharp lookout for future EPM and rating specific SITREPs under the ALCGENL Bulletin in CGMS.
Early slate and Special Assignments messages have been released, as well as OIC, XPO, and EPO solicitation messages. Refer to rating specific websites for information and updates.
Why is this important to our CG members? The ESS is ONE of the tools used by EPM to make screening and assignment decisions. Therefore, it is imperative that everyone verifies their ESS in CGBI. To view your ESS, click on the following link:

NEW* GEOGRAPHIC STABILITY/DIVERSITY
Career diversity also includes geographic diversity, and we’d like to point out that the COMDT’s policy on geographic stability has recently changed with the new Military Assignments and Authorized Absences Manual, COMDTINST M1000.8.
To summarize the policy, geographic diversity can be achieved by (1)
completing full tours of duty, (2) granting extensions liberally, (3)
providing local stability for two tours, (4) providing regional stability
through multiple tours of duty in a geographic region.
With that, members who have completed two or more tours in a LOCAL AREA without affecting a household goods move are considered to have achieved geographic stability. Such members may request additional assignments in the local area on their e-resume, but must also have a realistic expectation of exercising a household goods move with their next assignment. For all members who desire an assignment in a specific locality, we continue to encourage you to apply for assignments using an expanding square, by applying for jobs that are not only in the city or locality that you desire, but expand throughout the region that you are looking for.
Please keep in mind that areas like Florida, Boston, Seattle, Alameda, Portsmouth/Hampton Roads, Alaska and the Carolinas continue to be places that have more assignment demand than we have assignment vacancies. Because they are competitive regions, it may be more challenging to achieve regional stability there.
