WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy announced changes to Career Sea Pay (CSP) June 8 in NAVADMIN 143/18.

The NAVADMIN provides new guidelines for CSP entitlement criteria for various operational units and staffs.

The changes include:

* New guidelines for special boat units, expeditionary boat units, and landing craft utility units (LCU) to receive daily CSP rates.

* All afloat staffs, with the exception of 7th Fleet and Carrier Strike Group 5 staffs, will now earn daily CSP, only for days spent either underway or embarked for eight continuous hours.

CSP provides a special payment in recognition of the greater than normal rigors of sea duty, the arduous duty involved in long deployments, and the repetitive nature of assignment to such duty.
