The Navy Recruiting and Accession Management System (NRAMS) acquisition is to design, develop, integrate, test, implement, and train specific information technology functionality in support of the Navy Recruiting Command (NRC). NRAMS will be acquired and developed using an evolutionary acquisition approach with incremental deployment at selected NRC sites.
The Commander, Navy Recruiting Command (CNRC) reporting to the Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP), is charged with all functions related to accessing officer and enlisted personnel necessary to maintain the desired military end-strength levels, with qualitative and occupational balance in accordance with policy by higher authority. Each month, CNRC coordinates the assignment and issuance of controlled officer and enlisted recruiting quotas and school seats with Navy Personnel Command (PERSCOM) and Chief of Naval Education and Training (CNET). This close coordination is essential in providing management for setting waiver policy and standards, development of recruiting policy, establishing boot camp shipping and “A” School goals, and measuring the degree of success in meeting these mission essential goals.
The NRC, with headquarters at Millington, TN, includes approximately 9,000 users, intermediate commanders, and management personnel. The command includes 1,500 recruiting stations organized into 4 regions, 31 districts, and 206 zones located throughout the Continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Europe, and the Far East. NRC personnel track and respond to approximately 4.8 million leads annually resulting in 65,000 new officer and enlisted recruits each year. In addition to those processed for immediate entry, the command also manages Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) cadets and personnel electing the Delayed Entry Program (DEP). The entire monthly and annual cycle depends on accurate date entry, effective data transfer, and consistent feedback to the Navy Recruiting Regional Headquarters, Navy Recruiting District (NRD) Offices and Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) classifiers. Failure in any of the processing areas requiring rapid feedback, accurate data, and goal assignment can result in unnecessary attrition.
