NCOER Tips (Sep 23, 2013)

• Ensure counseling is happening; spot check rater‟s checklist/record

• Best NCO receives 2 or 3 Excellence bullets, not 5-0 or 4-1 (success in PT)

• Justify Excellence Bullets – Tell the story …

• If you give a Success box check – must add bullet comment (s);
can‟t leave it blank

• Ensure Junior Officers and NCOs know system

• Senior Rater Narrative – Focus on Performance + Potential
– promotion, school and assignments

• Create Excellence Opportunities – Tell NCOs how to achieve excellence

• NCO-ER Quality Control – suggest using CSM
