Navy CHART Moves to USAJobs

December, 11, 2014

In an ongoing effort to improve the applicant experience, the Department of the Navy (DON) will be replacing the CHART application system with the USAJOBS online system. USAJOBS is the federal government’s official one-stop source for federal jobs and employment information.

After September 30, 2011, all DON job vacancies will be posted on the USAJOBS website and the CHART job search functionality and job vacancies will be removed.

For non Department of the Defense (DoD) employees, CHART will no longer be accessible after October 12, 2011. If you are a DoD or DON employee you may access CHART via a computer on a registered Government network (which may also require CAC authentication) until 30 December, 2011. Only resume and status information will be available for view.

DON will no longer use DON nationwide Open Continuous Announcements (OCAs) to gather applications for upcoming and anticipated vacancies. Most vacancies will be filled using individual vacancy announcements with identified closing dates. For frequently filled jobs at a particular DON installation or activity, activity specific OCAs may be opened. You can be notified via email for posted vacancy announcements by using the USAJOBS Saved Searches feature.


1. Before September 30, 2011, you should access your CHART account and print and save an electronic copy of your online CHART resume.

2. Create a USAJOBS account at and either upload a resume or build a resume using your current CHART resume information. The DON created a specific fact sheet outlining the key steps to transfer your information.
