Executive Officer Tip 2013-088 (#88 of 140)
I have provided the NPC Collateral duty list for your convenience. Your duties at the NIOC will be different but is it a good starting point because their format is Better Than Average (BTA). BTA is a good place to start on your way to EXTRAORDINARY. If you hold your Collateral Duty holders accountable for doing what the instruction says, you are in good shape. If you don't, you will be miserable at IG time. Challenge your Sailors to provide a monthly/quarterly report on the work they have done on their collateral duty(ies). They can include the reports at semi-annual counseling and EVAL time. Some of their collateral duty reports may be worthy of inclusion in your Command Operations Report. Pay attention: some collateral duties require a specific paygrade. If the CO waives that, make sure there is a letter to that effect so the IG knows that a deliberate decision was made and you know what you are doing.
Are you EXTRAORDINARY yet? What does your Golden Anchor Package for 2013 look like? How is that coming along.
