  20. Recognition: What we’ve done

  21. Promotion Success rates for promotion vary slightly from year to year. In PY11 up for T-O4, down for T-O5 & O-6.

  22. Promotion Your raw scores on the benchmarks any given year are not meaningful compared to a previous year

  23. Promotion Your raw scores are meaningful compared to the scores of officers who were promoted

  24. Comments on the score sheet provide insight into areas on which to focus to improve your performance/ scores for next year At least 2 board members must check box for strength/ suggestion to appear All free text comments appear 5 board members in PY11! Not a Hybrid Board 60 Promotion

  25. Promotion General feedback to all officers • Current CVs are very important • Check Therapist Category for current year Promotion Benchmarks • Use recommended CV format on website • Be cautious in use of abbreviations and discipline specific “jargon” • Do your best to make sure PIR, CV, officer/ROS statements, and COER attachments all tell cohesive story about you. Educate your rating and reviewing official about importance of completing documents.

  26. Promotion General feedback to all officers: • Career counseling encouraged but not required for any officer not promoted. Officers are free to choose who performs the counseling. • Category career counseling by CPO or designee required for officers ranked in the lowest quartile. This must be documented in OPF. • Officers ranked in lowest decile x3 years referred to retention review board. • Officers not meeting readiness standards receive automatic not recommend and referred to review board. • Defer (vs not recommend) also option for temporary promotion for officers felt not ready to serve at next highest rank. These officers also referred to retention review board.

  27. Promotion General feedback to all officers • Review your OPF to see if you can EASILY locate information that addresses ALL promotion benchmarks. • List the contact hours for continuing education • Please consider the fax machine you are using • Common issues included missing or out-of-date documents, 100% under the officer’s influence; CVs, Officer Statements, Continuing Education List. • Verify that documents are complete, accurate, error free, and legible after they are faxed to the OPF.

  28. Promotion Readiness December 31 • If ready – earn 0 points on readiness precept (PY-12) • If not – automatic not recommend for promotion March 31 • Part of administrative check along with licensure and other issues • If ready – stay on rank order list • If not – removed from rank order list, even if scored well enough by promotion board to be promoted

  29. Promotion The Promotion Precepts are weighted as follow: • 1. Performance Rating and Reviewing Official’s Statement (Performance) - 40% • 2. Education, training, and professional development - 20% • 3. Career progression and potential - 25% • 4. Professional contributions and services to the PHS Commissioned Corps (Officership) - 15% • 5. Basic Readiness ***0% • IMPORTANT NOTE***: Although the Readiness precept no longer carries any weight with regard to numerical score for promotion, basic readiness remains one of the several administrative checks for promotion. Officers in a "not ready" status at the 31 Dec OFRD status report prior to the promotion year will receive an automatic Board Not Recommend. In addition, officers in a "not ready" status at the subsequent 31 Mar OFRD status report, who were otherwise successful, will be removed from the successful list. Officers are advised to maintain basic readiness at all times.

  30. Readiness (Jan 1-Mar 31 2011) 4/10/11

  34. Readiness Relatively few changes in last year • If not ready when reviewed for temporary promotion, promotion held. Future plans • New policies in development have been delayed for additional review, partly due to release of physical activities guidelines. • Changes to look for on release include additional disciplinary actions, BMI standards, and modifications to the President’s Challenge option.

  35. Readiness Deployments • State of the Union • Haiti Earthquake • Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill • Field-based training

  36. Transformation Current Priorities • Direct Access – implemented about 1 year ago. Now primary means to enter some readiness info, but be familiar with all data fields. • Billets – anticipated to conclude this fall • Accountability Restructuring

  37. BCS Conclusion • TPAC reviewers overwhelmingly agreed that the BCS roll-out and education process for Therapist Category officers, agency supervisors and reviewing officials were sufficient. • Therapist Category Rapid Responders were: • under-utilized throughout the billet collection process. • had the Rapid Responders been effectively utilized, many or all of the inconsistencies (red flags) could have been eliminated. • may have improved the process to have also encouraged the supervisor and reviewing officials to contact the Rapid Responders to assist in the review. 3. All “red” flag items have been submitted to agency liaisons.
