As a general rule any member who is assigned to a cutter in the local area (home ported in Alameda) and needs to be put ashore or administratively assigned (ADASGN) should be assigned to a medical or discipline support allowance position at PSD. Who does not get assigned to the PSD TAD Branch? - As a general rule, personnel assigned to shore units should be ADASGN to a support allowance billet at their own unit and not to the Base. However, in some exceptional cases the PSD will accept ADASGN personnel from shore units in cases where medical treatment is not available within the member's local commuting area (50 miles) or when required in unique disciplinary cases. These will be handled on a case-by-case basis between the Assignment Officer (AO) and Base Commander.
Assignment to other units - Although personnel may be ADASGN to the PSD TAD Branch, Base Alameda will consider having the member perform day-work at other local DCMS and operational units as may be appropriate (i.e. sending a cook to the nearest local galley). The intent is to ensure the member is gainfully employed with in rate to the extent of their physical limitations and no cost local commuting options. The AOs will relay any suggested assignment locations when contacting the PSD for the assignment.
The AOs will contact the PSD Head as part of the orders issuing process to ensure the command is aware of the assignment of a member, although direct contact, XO to XO or CO to CO is encouraged prior to requesting an ADASGN.
