BUPERSINST 1610.10D, 1 May 2015
3-3. Letter-Extension of Reports. Commands may extend previously submitted reports by letter for up to 3 months in place of another report occasion (e.g. Periodic, Detachment of Individual, Detachment of Reporting Senior, or a Promotion/Frocking report). Exception: Commands may not extend a previously submitted Promotion/Frocking or Detachment of Individual report in place of another report occasion. Letter-Extensions may not change or add to the performance traits or grade/rate, comments, or promotion recommendation on the original report, but may add to the duties performed and qualifications attained (block 29). More than one extension may be submitted, but a report may not be extended for a cumulative period of more than 3 months (including terminal leave), or if it will result in a total report period exceeding 15 months. Submit letter-extensions to NAVPERSCOM (PERS-32) and provide a copy of the letter extension to the member. PERS-32 will reject and return for correction any letter-extension that does not meet the criteria as discussed in this chapter. See exhibit 3-1 for a sample letter-extension.
