OFFICER AND ENLISTED EVALUATIONS SYSTEMS
|Publication Date:||14 November 2019|
The Officer and Enlisted Evaluation Systems have varied purposes. The first is to effectively communicate performance standards and expectations and provide meaningful feedback on how those standards and expectations are being upheld. The second is to establish a reliable, long-term, cumulative record of performance and promotion potential based on that performance. The third is to provide sound information to assist in making talent management decisions.
To accomplish these purposes, the evaluation system focuses on performance. How well a member does his/her job and the qualities the individual brings to the job are of paramount importance to the Air Force. It is also important for development of skills and leadership abilities and in determining who will be selected for advancement through assignments, promotions, and other personnel actions. The evaluation system emphasizes the importance of performance in several ways -- using periodic performance feedback as the basis for formal evaluations and through performance-based promotion recommendations.
Unless stated otherwise, the general guidelines outlined in this chapter apply to all Officer Performance Reports (OPRs), Enlisted Performance Reports (EPRs), Training Reports (TRs), Promotion Recommendation Forms (PRFs), Letters of Evaluation (LOEs), Enlisted Retention Recommendation Forms (ERRFs), and Retention Recommendation Forms (RRFs).
