  23. CAD • Five pillars to identify the need for new Corps applicants. These position pillars include: • 1. Assignment to underserved and vulnerable populations. • 2. Assignment is in a hardship location (or difficult-to-recruit position) where there is significant unmet need for qualified professionals • 3. Assignment requires regular engagement with other uniformed services. • Assignment does not meet criteria 1-4 but cannot be filled without the • Commissioned Corps and will address an important public health need. • Assignment requires individual to be available for rapid deployment – domestic • or international – at the direction of the agency head (as distinguished from deployment for natural disaster or international response) or requires availability to perform duties 24/7, including when on leave.

  30. Promotion

  31. Promotion - Precepts 1) Performance (40% of overall score) 2) Education, Training, and Professional Development (20% of overall score) 3) Career Progression and Potential (25% of overall score) 4) Characteristics of Career Officer & Service to the Corps (15% of overall score) 5) Response Readiness (0% of overall score, not scored by the promotion board). Response readiness is still an administrative check used for promotion. Officers who fail to meet and maintain basic readiness will not be promoted

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

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. 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 Hybrid Board in PY 2012 60 Promotion
