This Directive reissues DoD Directive 1320.12, February 4, 1992 (hereby canceled). This Directive updates policy and responsibilities for administering the commissioned officer promotion program in the Department of Defense under Title 10, United States Code. It also incorporates Reserve component policies and responsibilities resultant from the Reserve Officer Personnel Management Act under subtitle E of Title 10, United States Code.

Note: This Regulation is available in both PDF File Format and ASCII Format. While ASCII will load faster, it will not contain tables and photos which may be available in the original document. If you choose the PDF Format, you must first download and install the FREE PDF Viewer Program from Adobe Software. Depending on your Internet connection speed, large regulation files may take several minutes to download before they can be viewed.

Note: On 1 October (2003), DOD Directives were placed behind a "firewall," that restricts access only to those using a government (.gov) or military (.mil) computer system. You must be on a .gov or .mil domain to view this publication. I don't know if this is a permament change, or temporary.
