ALCGPSC 128/16 – OFFICER AND ENLISTED EVALUATION STATUS UPDATE

Under the sponsorship of the Human Capital Strategy, two important updates to the Services’ evaluation systems are forthcoming.

  • Officer Evaluation Report (OER): In December 2015 an Officer Evaluation System Change Action Team (OES CAT) was chartered by CG -1 to assess the current OES and make recommendations to improve effectiveness and efficiency. The OES CAT, consisting of a cross section of members from throughout the Service, delivered their final report in June 2016. The report recommended several policy and form changes that resulted in new OER forms that will go into effect on 1 January 2017.

 

  • Enlisted Evaluation Report (EER): An Enlisted Evaluation System (EES) Integrated Product Team (IPT) was recently added to the Human Capital Strategy. The EES IPT will update Enlisted Evaluation Report (EER) forms and examine policy changes that support enlisted work force management efforts. The updated EER forms will align performance expectations taught in leadership continuum courses with observed member performance. Policy updates will reduce administrative burden and analyze impacts to the workforce. Additional information will be available as the EES IPT progresses.

ALCOAST 409/16 – RESOLICITATION FOR THE BOAT FORCES ADVISORY COUNCIL (BFAC)

This message solicits members for the Boat Forces Advisory Council (BFAC). The Boat Forces Advisory Council serves as a valuable communications conduit between the field and the Office of Boat Forces. The BFAC is chaired by the Joshua James Ancient Keeper (JJAK), with membership consisting of both standing and nominated members, as well as at-large members and advisors. BFAC members represent a cross section of the boat forces community and must reflect the highest level of boat forces knowledge, professionalism, and personal conduct.
