    It has been my understanding and casual observation that activation of the VP's nom is the precursor of further action by the academy that initiates the activation. I hope this holds true for you - best wishes.

    Unlike a Presidential nomination, (or non-principal Congressional nom as well), a Vice Presidential "nomination" is a de facto appointment.

    The academies makes their selection(s) and forward their choice(s) to the VP.

    The VP's office has nothing to do with the candidate selection criteria, it is done by each DOD academy, entirely on their own.

    The VP will then "nominate" whoever the academy has chosen, thus legalizing their appointment.

    It's a slam dunk.
