‘Human error’ blamed for 134 incorrect promotion notifications

Article in the Stars and Stripes by Jeff Schogol on 8 June 2009

134 petty officers second class were incorrectly notified that they had been promoted to E-6 before the Memorial Day weekend.

The process seems to involve calculating scores and those with the highest earn the promotion. In this case the quota for the number being promoted was exceeded due to human error. Those involved will have to be demoted. According to the article "The Navy has since added an extra check to make sure the human error in question does not happen again."
