Enlisted evaluation and promotion changes announced in July 2014, continue with establishment of a May 31 enlisted performance report static closeout date (SCOD) for regular Air Force, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve chief master sergeants, effective Feb. 2, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.

Also effective Feb. 2, change of reporting official EPRs will be eliminated for all chief master sergeants.

Enlisted Evaluation System and Weighted Airman Promotion System changes initiated in July 2014, for regular Air Force will continue to be implemented in stages over the next two years for regular Air Force, ANG and Air Force Reserve component Airmen. The changes focus on ensuring job performance is the most important factor when evaluating Airmen.

Chiefs whose EPRs close out before Feb. 2, will get another EPR closing out May 31, that will cover performance during the months between their most recent EPR and May 31.

For example, a chief whose EPR closes out Jan. 31, 2015 will get that EPR and another May 31, that will cover performance between Feb. 1 and May 31.

Chiefs who’s EPRs would have closed out between Feb. 2 and May 31, including those who sew on after Feb. 2, will not get an EPR until the May 31 SCOD. Chiefs whose EPRs would have closed out after May 31, 2015, will have their EPR closeout date moved to May 31.

For ANG chiefs only, drill status guardsmen, to include technicians, will receive an initial evaluation for June 1, 2013 through May 31, 2015. Active Guard Reserve and Statutory Tour Personnel migration will be in accordance with ANG specific guidance provided through the National Guard Bureau Director for Manpower, Personnel and Services.

Additional enlisted evaluation and promotion system changes will be announced as they are approved for implementation.
