Abstract:

Commanders and supervisors of officers assigned to joint duty positions are burdened by having to prepare officer evaluation reports regulated by four distinct sets of service policies and procedures. The time has come to begin an earnest dialogue with respect to limited use of a common system for evaluating officers in joint positions. Such a system would alleviate the uncertainty experienced by rating officials caused by lack of familiarity with service evaluation programs. A common system would also reduce the potential for unintended results on rated officer careers caused by inadvertent acts of commission or omission. This paper argues the benefits of a limited use joint officer evaluation reporting system, outlines essential characteristics of such a system, and suggests specific evaluation criteria that should be acceptable to all military services.
