Air Force leaders will test the newly developed AF Form 912, Enlisted Performance Report (CMSgt), during the calendar year 2014 Regular Air Force Command Chief Master Sergeant Screening Board, which convenes at the Pentagon in September, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.
Development of a chief master sergeant evaluation form is one of many Air Force Enlisted Evaluation System and promotion process changes slated to be implemented in several stages for RegAF over the next 18 months and for the Air Reserve Components over the next 30 months, officials announced July 31. The EES and enlisted promotion overhaul is focused primarily on ensuring that top performers are recognized and selected for promotion.
"This chief evaluation form is currently for testing purposes only," said Will Brown, Air Force Evaluation and Recognition Programs Branch chief. "The form is posted on ePublishing right now for accessibility and for use as a test form for the upcoming command chief screening board. The forms used for the CCM board, however, will not be maintained in Airman's official military personnel record."
During this test phase, the form will be used only for RegAF chiefs whose senior raters are submitting them for command chief consideration.
"This is just a test phase, similar to the test phase we conducted prior to implementing the Airman Comprehensive Assessment feedback forms," said Brown. "We'll communicate with senior leaders, including Chief's Group representatives, during and after this test phase to determine what - if any - tweaks need to be made to the EPR form."
The chief EPR will enable senior raters to capture a chief's overall performance, and will provide an opportunity for senior raters to recommend the chief for future roles, such as career field manager, major command functional manager and command chief duty. The form is tentatively slated to be implemented in May 2015. Air Reserve Components will also begin using the form in May 2015, following implementation of EPR static closeout dates.
