Enlisted evaluation and promotion systems implementation timeline

WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- In July, the chief of staff and chief master sergeant of the Air Force announced a series of incremental changes to the Enlisted Evaluation and Weighted Airman Promotion Systems scheduled for implementation from August 2014 through January 2017.

The evaluation and promotion systems changes are slated for implementation in a phased manner for the Regular Air Force, or RegAF, during the next 18 months, and for the Air Reserve Components, or ARC, during the next 30 months. The announced changes focus on ensuring the Air Force accurately documents duty performance and uses it as the driving factor in selecting Airmen for promotion.

“We understand there is naturally a thirst for information on this topic,” said Lt. Gen. Samuel D. Cox, deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services. “With a rollout of this magnitude, it’s important that we synchronize the release of information with implementation of the changes. We’re committed to providing clear guidance and advance notice to our Airmen, supervisors and commanders for each phase of this dynamic program; to that end, we’ve carefully scheduled a phased rollout over the next 30 months.”

Airmen can expect periodic updates on each phase of the new program prior to the actual execution or implementation date. Information will be provided in a timely and standard manner to cover the main areas of these program changes and in a variety of ways to include articles and posts on myPers, the Air Force Portal, AF Link and AFPC.af.mil as well as social media question and answer sessions.

Additionally, to help answer more detailed questions and provide base-level expertise, the Air Force Personnel Center will also publish change management messages and will hold webinars for combatant command, major command and force support squadron personnel to educate them on the specific changes associated with each phase of the rollout.

The Air Force has now provided an implementation timeline to help shape expectations and let Airmen know when they should see information covering each phase of the rollout, Cox said.

A pictorial version of the timeline will be available on the myPers site this week and the projected execution schedule is attached as a related link to this article for downloading. The following is the implementation timeline showing when information on each topic will be available:
