INFORMATION ASSURANCE REQUIREMENTS
Information Assurance (IA) training is mandated for all users of Department of Defense (DoD) information systems. This requirement applies to Department of Navy (DoN) personnel who have or will require access to DoD or DoN computers. IA training must be taken annually, no later than Sept. 1 each year, as a condition of being granted and retaining access to DOD and DON computer systems.
All newly arriving or transferring military and civilian personnel are required to submit OPNAV 5239-14, System Authorization Access Request-Navy (SAAR-N), to obtain DoN email accounts.
Personnel transferring from another command should also speak to their security manager to ensure that their clearance information is up-to-date in the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS).
For students reporting to MSTCLANT, it is recommended to book lodging early through the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites – Naval Station Norfolk. If you are issued a Certificate of Non-Availability to stay in town and your intermediate stop in Norfolk is 31 days or more, you are subject to the 75% rule in the JTR Chapter 4 TDY Part B 4250 A and B (1-7). To clarify, you will only be receiving the 75% flat rate; you will NOT receive the other 25% until liquidation of your travel claim.
Surrounding Norfolk hotels charge various rates for rooms based on the day of the week. If the daily rate is greater than your lodging allowance you will NOT receive any more money for this time; it will be an out-of-pocket expense. Ensure you are requesting the government rate.
