SUBJ/NAVY UNIFORM UPDATE – SERVICE DRESS KHAKI//

RMKS/1. THIS NAVADMIN ANNOUNCES THE APPROVAL FOR FINAL DEVELOPMENT OF SERVICE DRESS KHAKI (SDK) AS AN OPTIONAL UNIFORM, AND PROVIDES INITIAL DETAILS OF OCCASION FOR WEAR POLICY.

2. SDK WEAR TEST BEGAN IN APRIL 2008 AND COMPLETED IN OCTOBER 2009. 125 SAILORS PARTICIPATED IN THE WEAR TEST IN SIX GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS. TWO WEAR TEST DESIGNS WERE EVALUATED. THE FIRST, A TRADITIONAL DESIGN, WAS BASED ON THE ORIGINAL SDK UNIFORM DISESTABLISHED IN 1975. THE SECOND, A CONTEMPORARY DESIGN, INCORPORATED MORE UPDATED DESIGN FEATURES SUCH AS AN UNBELTED WAIST AND PEAKED LAPELS. BASED ON FEEDBACK PROVIDED IN WRITTEN SURVEYS AND FOCUS GROUPS, THE CLEAR PREFERENCE OF WEAR TEST PARTICIPANTS WAS THE CONTEMPORARY DESIGN UNIFORM. THE PARTICIPANTS PROVIDED RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FURTHER SDK UNIFORM COMPONENT MODIFICATIONS. NEXCOM WILL PURSUE A 75/25 POLY/WOOL FABRIC BLEND JACKET, SUCH THAT IT MAY BE WORN WITH THE EXISTING SERVICE KHAKI PANTS OR SKIRT.

3. WE ANTICIPATE THE UNIFORM WILL BE AVAILABLE BY FY 2012. SDK WILL BE FOR OPTIONAL WEAR BY E7 THROUGH O10 IN LIEU OF SUMMER WHITE AND SERVICE KHAKI DURING PERIODS WHEN SUMMER UNIFORMS ARE PRESCRIBED, AND  DURING SITUATIONS WHERE WEARING A TIE IS APPROPRIATE, SUCH AS AN OFFICE ENVIRONMENT. AS SUCH, IT WILL SERVE AS AN OPTIONAL CONFIGURATION OF SERVICE KHAKI (LONG SLEEVE SHIRT AND TIE, WITH OR WITHOUT JACKET). DETAILED REGULATIONS FOR WEAR WILL BE PROMULGATED AT A LATER DATE, CONSISTENT WITH ART 1201 OF REF A.

4. NEXCOM ANTICIPATES A PERIOD OF 18 MONTHS TO COMPLETE DEVELOPMENT OF SDK AND MAKE IT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE. ONCE AVAILABLE, SDK WILL BE SOLD VIA SPECIAL ORDER FROM NAVY EXCHANGE  SERVICE COMMAND (NEXCOM) UNIFORM CENTERS. BECAUSE IT WILL BE AN OPTIONAL UNIFORM, THE COST TO OWN WILL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND NO UNIFORM ALLOWANCE WILL BE PROVIDED.

5. DURING FINAL DEVELOPMENT, A SMALL SDK WEAR TEST WILL BE ESTABLISHED TO HELP EVALUATE THE FINAL UNIFORM COMPONENTS. FINAL COST INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE FOLLOWING COMPLETION OF THIS TEST.

NAVADMIN 311/07

SUBJ/NAVY UNIFORMS//

REF/A/DOC/CHNAVPERS/01JAN2003// AMPN/REF A IS DOD FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT REGULATIONS, VOLUME 7A, CHAPTER 29//

RMKS/1. THE FY-08 ANNUAL CLOTHING REPLACEMENT ALLOWANCE (CRA) FOR NAVY IS APPROVED FOR ACTIVE COMPONENT ENLISTED SAILORS E1 THROUGH E9.THE INCREASE IN FY-08 AND FY-09 CLOTHING REPLACEMENT ALLOWANCE RATES IS PART OF NAVY’S PLAN TO FACILITATE THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW NAVY UNIFORMS DURING THE NEXT TWO YEARS. TIMING OF THE CRA INCREASE ENSURES ELIGIBLE SAILORS HAVE THE FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE OF THESE NEW UNIFORMS WHEN THEY ARE INTRODUCED TO THE FLEET.

2. PER REF A, THE ANNUAL CRA PROVIDES ACTIVE COMPONENT ENLISTED SAILORS WHO HAVE GREATER THAN SIX MONTHS ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE WITH A MONETARY ALLOWANCE INTENDED FOR PURCHASING REPLACEMENT UNIFORM COMPONENTS. THE AMOUNT OF ANNUAL CRA IS DETERMINED BY THE COST AND NUMBER OF UNIFORM COMPONENTS DIVIDED BY THE RESPECTIVE COMPONENT WEAR LIFE. PER DOD GUIDANCE, ACTIVE COMPONENT SAILORS E1 – E6 WITH GREATER THAN SIX MONTHS, BUT LESS THAN THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF SERVICE, WILL RECEIVE SEVENTY PERCENT OF THE ALLOWANCE RECEIVED BY E1 – E6 SAILORS WITH GREATER THAN THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF SERVICE.

3. DURING THE NEXT TWO YEARS, NAVY WILL INTRODUCE AND MAKE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE, COMPONENTS OF THE PHYSICAL TRAINING UNIFORM (PTU), E1 – E6 SERVICE UNIFORM (SU) AND THE NAVY WORKING UNIFORM (NWU). APPROXIMATELY 300 DOLLARS OF THE FY-08 CRA IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE ADVANCE MONETARY COMPENSATION TO FACILITATE PURCHASING OF THE PTU SHIRT AND SHORTS (TWO EACH), ONE HALF OF THE SU UNIFORM REQUIREMENT AND ONE HALF OF THE NWU UNIFORM REQUIREMENT UPON AVAILABILITY. THE FY-09 CRA WILL PROVIDE FOR FINAL PURCHASING OF THE SU AND NWU REQUIREMENTS PRIOR TO THE END OF THE TWO YEAR DISTRIBUTION PERIOD. FOLLOWING FY-09, THE CRA RATES WILL REFLECT REPLACEMENT COST OF ALL UNIFORM COMPONENTS BASED ON THEIR RESPECTIVE WEAR-LIFE.

4. THE INTENT AND PROPER USE OF THE ANNUAL CRA IS EXPRESSLY FOR THE PURCHASE OF NEW AND REPLACEMENT UNIFORMS, WHICH ENABLES OUR ENLISTED FORCE TO PRESENT A UNIFORM PROFESSIONAL APPEARANCE. LEADERS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO DISCUSS WITH THEIR SAILORS THE PROPER BUDGETING AND USE OF THIS REPLACEMENT ALLOWANCE. SPECIFICALLY, SAILORS MUST BE AWARE THAT IT IS LIKELY THEY WILL RECEIVE THEIR ANNUAL CRA DISBURSEMENT SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE NEW UNIFORM AVAILABILITY, AND MUST THEREFORE BUDGET FOR ITS PROPER USE.

5. DUE TO THE DELAY IN THE FY-08 DOD APPROPRIATIONS BILL, SOME SAILORS RECEIVED THEIR CRA AT THE FY07 RATE WHILE WE OPERATED UNDER A CONTINUING RESOLUTION. NOW THAT THE APPROPRIATIONS BILL PASSED, THEY WILL BE REIMBURSED BY AN ADDITIONAL DISBURSEMENT EQUAL TO THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FY07 AND FY08 RATES SHORTLY AFTER THE CALENDAR YEAR BEGINS.

6. DETAILED GUIDANCE REGARDING SU AND NWU COMPONENT REQUIREMENTS AND AVAILABILITY WILL BE ISSUED VIA SEPCOR.

7. POINT OF CONTACT IS MR. ROBERT B. CARROLL, OPNAV 131U, AT (703) 614-5076/DSN 224 OR EMAIL AT ROBERT.B.CARROLL(AT)NAVY.MIL.
