The Naval Board meets monthly and is a regular forum for senior leaders to consider naval policy and guidance affecting naval integration and warfighting issues. It is the most senior board that integrates the Navy and Marine Corps on issues between the Naval Services.

Subject matter considered by the Naval Board will span the entire DOTMLPF spectrum and often requires detailed information to inform board members so they can make effective decisions. It is not uncommon for a single subject to be briefed during multiple boards in order to articulate those points of friction across the DOTMLPF spectrum that require resolution.
