Reference (a) provides FY 2020 SDP/AP authorizations. Reference (b) provides policy and reference (c) provides important policy clarification.

With the new SDP & AP special pays (see reference (a) for authorizations) , we will be removing the ability to enter SDAP in DA on 9/25/19.  At the same time, we will be adding SDP and AP to the Payroll Request listing.  Any retro transactions (starts/stops/corrections) for SDAP will need to be submitted through a trouble ticket.  For those member's eligible for SDP and/or AP on or after 10/1/2019, SPO's must MANUALLY enter these in DA.

SPO Action

If a member already has SDAP running, DO NOT restart the entitlement except for the following SDAP's:

  • CSEL SD1
  • CSEL SD2
  • Cryptologic Direct Support Element (CDSE) Mission Supervisors aboard CG Cutters Cryptologic Direct Support Element (CDSE) Operators aboard CG Cutters
  • We had to separate two SDAP codes (Heavy Weather and Tactical Coxswain) due to Heavy Weather is no longer eligible for SDAP.  Tactical Coxswain SDAP will need to be restarted by SPOs for those members that had it running prior to 10/1/2018.

All existing SDAP entitlement rows will have an end date of 9/30/2018 and a new EAPB row will automatically be created with an effective date of 10/1/2018.

If SDAP was NOT running, the SPO will need to start it after receiving the proper source documentation.
