“After each PFA, Sailors need to log into PRIMS and ensure their data is entered and accurate,” said Bill Moore, director, Navy Physical

Readiness Program.

All commands are required to report their PFA data via PRIMS no later than 30 days after conducting the PFA in accordance with guidelines established in the Navy’s Physical Readiness Program instruction, OPNAVINST 6110.1J. Each Sailor must have a record for both PFA cycles in the year, even if the record reflects non-participation status due to deployment, individual augmentee, medical waiver, etc.

Sailors need to verify their data within 60 days so that any corrections can be made by the Command Fitness Leader at the command level. After six months of PFA completion, record changes can only be made by PRIMS administrators at Navy Personnel Command, which requires a Letter of Correction from the individual’s commanding officer, on letter head, that grants authorization to make the change.
