1. THIS NAVADMIN PROMULGATES BUSINESS RULES FOR DOCUMENTING PHYSICAL FITNESS ASSESSMENT (PFA) RESULTS ON PERFORMANCE REPORTS SUBMITTED WITH AN END DATE OF 1 AUGUST 2010 OR LATER.

2. AS ANNOUNCED IN REF A, THIS CHANGE IS THE RESULT OF SELECTION BOARD FEEDBACK, REINFORCES THE REQUIREMENT FOR COMMANDS TO MAINTAIN ACCURATE DATA IN THE PHYSICAL READINESS INFORMATION MAINTENANCE SYSTEMS (PRIMS) AND PROVIDES SELECTION BOARDS WITH ACCURATE INFORMATION CONCERNING A MEMBER’S PFA PERFORMANCE DURING THAT REPORTING PERIOD.

3. FOR PERFORMANCE REPORTS WITH AN END DATE (BLOCK 15) OF 1 AUGUST 2010 OR LATER, COMMANDS ARE REQUIRED TO ENTER A ONE-LETTER PFA CODE IN BLOCK 20 FOR EACH PFA CYCLE COMPLETED DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD. THE FOLLOWING ONE- LETTER PFA CODES ARE ESTABLISHED:
P – PASSED BOTH PHYSICAL READINESS TEST (PRT) AND BODY COMPOSITION ASSESSMENT (BCA).
F – OVERALL PFA FAILURE (FAILED BCA OR PRT).
M – MEDICALLY WAIVED FROM ENTIRE PFA (BCA AND PRT).
W – PASSED BCA BUT MEDICALLY WAIVED FROM 1 OR MORE PRT EVENT(S).
B – PASSED THE BCA BUT WAS AUTHORIZED NON-PARTICIPATION IN THE PRT FOR OTHER THAN MEDICAL WAIVER REASONS (SEE CODE N FOR NON-PARTICIPATION REASONS). A COMMENT WILL BE MADE IN THE COMMENTS ON PERFORMANCE BLOCK (BLOCK 43 – E1-E6 EVALUATIONS, BLOCK 41 – FITNESS REPORTS, BLOCK 41 – E7-E9 CHIEF EVALUATIONS) WITH REASON FOR NON-PARTICIPATION.
N – NO PFA CONDUCTED DURING REPORTING PERIOD. NON-PARTICIPATION IN ENTIRE PFA (BCA AND PRT) DUE TO DEPLOYMENT/OPERATIONAL (DEP/OP), INDIVIDUAL AUGMENTEE MANPOWER MANAGEMENT (IAMM), GLOBAL SUPPORT ASSIGNMENT (GSA), PREGNANCY, TEMPORARY ADDITIONAL DUTY (TAD) OR EXCUSED AS DEFINED BY REF C. (NOTE: BCAS SHALL BE ACCOMPLISHED ON ALL MEMBERS EVEN IF ONBOARD LESS THAN 10 WEEKS OR UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN PRT DUE TO DEP/OP.
DEP/OP FOR BCA MUST BE APPROVED BY THE IMMEDIATE SUPERIOR IN COMMAND (ISIC).

4. IN BLOCK 20 ENTER THE ONE LETTER CODE WITHOUT A SPACE OR SLASH FOR EACH OFFICIAL PFA ADMINISTERED DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD. THEREFORE, IF THE MEMBER COMPLETED MORE THAN ONE PFA CYCLE DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD, ENTER A ONE LETTER CODE FOR EACH CYCLE.
EXAMPLES:
PF – INDICATES THE MEMBER PARTICIPATED IN TWO PFA CYCLES DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD AND THAT THE MEMBER PASSED THE FIRST AND FAILED THE SECOND.
FPM – INDICATES THE MEMBER PARTICIPATED IN THREE PFAs DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD AND THAT THE MEMBER FAILED THE FIRST, PASSED THE SECOND AND HAD A MEDICAL WAIVER FOR THE THIRD.
NP – INDICATES THERE WERE TWO PFAS DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD AND THAT THE MEMBER WAS NOT REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE FIRST PFA AND PASSED THE SECOND PFA.
N – INDICATES NO PFA OCCURRED DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD.

5. IN BLOCK 29, ENTER THE PFA CYCLE INFORMATION USED IN DETERMINING CODES. FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE RESULTS REPORTED ARE THE RESULTS OF 2009 CYCLE 2 AND 2010 CYCLE 1, THEN ENTER PFA: 09-2/10-1.

6. TO IMPLEMENT THIS POLICY CHANGE, NAVFIT98A AND E7-E9 EVALUATION (NAVPERS 1616/27 6-08) WILL REQUIRE SOFTWARE MODIFICATION. NMCI WILL BEGIN TO UPDATE DESIGNATED WORKSTATIONS THAT CURRENTLY HAVE NAVFIT98A VERSION 23 INSTALLED DURING SCHEDULED SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE STARTING 1 AUGUST. FOR REPORTS DUE AFTER 1 AUGUST AND THE NAVFIT98A UPDATE HAS NOT BEEN INSTALLED, MANUALLY ENTER THE PFA CODES IN BLOCK 20, IGNORE THE VALIDATION ERRORS, AND PROCESS AS NORMAL.
