Recruiter Journal
Maj. Gen. Thomas C. Seamands
Updated Noncommissioned Officer Evaluation
Report Rating Forms Available Online
By David Ruderman
HRC Public Affairs
Dec. 11, 2015

U.S. Army Human Resources Command, or HRC, announced Monday the availability of the DA Form 2166-9 series, the revised Noncommissioned Officer, or NCO, Evaluation Report, or NCOER, and its activation in the web-based Evaluation Entry System, or EES.

As detailed in Military Personnel, or MILPER, Message 15-395, the effective policy date for use of the 2166-9 series will be Jan. 1. Activation of the revised NCOER forms now allows Soldiers and raters to immediately begin to prepare NCOERs with a "through date" of Jan. 1 and later.

The 2166-9 series consists of three revised NCO rating forms based on grade plate that mandate distinct rater and senior rater roles, and incorporate a senior rater profile and rater tendency assessment.

Soldiers who are due to receive a mandatory report between now and Dec. 31 of this year will continue to receive that report, whether it be an annual, an extended annual or a change of rater report, using the DA Form 2166-8 series of report forms.

Sergeants first class who are eligible for the FY 2016 Regular Army and U.S. Army Guard Reserve Master Sergeant Promotion Boards will also employ the 2166-8 series NCOER form, said Sgt. Maj. Stephen McDermid of HRC's Evaluation Branch.

Details were published in MILPER 15-340, Oct. 27. For board eligible NCOs, who have not received a mandatory report as outlined in MILPER 15-340, he or she will receive an HRC-directed Code 19 Evaluation with a through date of Dec. 31.

"This will ensure those individuals eligible for that board receive a close-out evaluation," McDermid said.

Training modules for proper use of the revised NCOER forms and an EES test site have been and remain available on the HRC website for Soldiers and raters to practice with.

Detailed training modules have been posted to HRC Evaluations Branch website as well as S1NET and are available for download on DVIDS at https://www.dvidshub.net/tags/video/ncoer. The training modules lead NCOs and raters through the process, section by section, in an easy-to-understand manner, McDermid said.

In addition to the activation of the NCOER forms, MILPER 15-395 also announced an update to the OER, or Officer Evaluation Report, forms that incorporate the use of Department of Defense ID numbers, or DoDID, in place of Social Security numbers.

The new NCOER forms will also use DoDID numbers in place of Social Security numbers. The DoDID, which appears on Soldiers' Common Access Cards, is being phased in as part of the federal government's effort to remove Social Security numbers from as many documents as possible.
