Shipmates, This was news to me until yesterday and I work at BRNC, so I did some digging and it is Harry van safeguard, gen dit. From April 2013 (the current SUY intake onwards) SUYs will join and leave as Sub lieutenants with 6 months seniority and get picked up to lieutenant via non-selective promotion two and a half years later. Pay wise SUYs will still be paid via the OCFR 15 level pay table (JSP 754, para 05.0305) which is split in to 3 levels (0-12, 12-15, 15 plus years) these pay and allowances start the day you join BRNC, you will remain on the pay table as a SLT and LT until LTCDR. To make sure I was interpreting it correctly I spoke to someone who is part of the whole DACOS PROMS and my RA. Below is a screen dump of the following reference : BR3, chap 49, para 4912 section E. Also JSP 754, sections 05.0305, 05.0307, 05,0308 Bravo. For pay, Annex a-5. Intersting reading, not very well communicated.
