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.
