The first phase begins on 13 May 2024 when eligible officers will have the opportunity to OPT-IN to the FY 26 CSL via the CSL26 Opt-In Portal, which they can access through their AIM Messages at The second phase for command/key billet selection is the CSL Board. The CSL Board will consider the totality of an officer’s or civilian’s file and determine whether an officer meets the criteria to compete for command/key billet. The results of the CSL Board will generate the invitation list to the third phase - the Acquisition Leader Assessment Program 26 (ALAP 26). The CSL order of merit (OML) will be based on the CSL Board score combined with scored components of ALAP 26. Selection for CSL billets will occur after officers’ complete ALAP 26. Officers found “Not Yet Certified” (NYC) at ALAP 26 will not appear on the FY26 CSL. The fourth and final phase, is the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics & Technology) ASA(ALT)’s approval of the OML and the CSL Slate. The ASA(ALT) remains the final approval authority for the CSL OML.
