6Classification of Competitive Promotions Temporary (O-4* and Above)* Medical & Dental Officers: O-4 is non-competitivePermanentExceptional Proficiency PromotionGenerally, officers who are eligible for temporary promotion to 0-2 (LTJG) or 0-3 (LT) will be promoted without Promotion Board review as long as your file meets all applicable administrative requirements listed on the Promotion Information Page under Non-Competitive Promotions.LCDR Whitney Gadsby is the Non-Comp Promo Coordinator, reachable at .For Medical and Dental Officers, temporary promotion to O-4 will non-competitive when they meet T&E requirements, assuming all administrative requirements are met as listed on the Promo Info Page.
7Eligibility Requirements Temporary Grade andExceptional Proficiency PromotionsTraining and Experience CreditTime in ServiceTime in GradeThe effective date is date you meet the last requirement if it is the 1st of the month, or the 1st of the following month.You can find your T&E date on your call to active duty orders or Promotion Information Report (PIR). You can see the T&E calculation sheet in your OPF in the Personnel Orders section.Time in Service is also on the PIR under Creditable Service. Only the prior active duty and PHS time counts for promotion. Civil Service Time does not count toward time-in-service for promotion purposes.Officers should know how long they have been in a certain grade. If not, they can refer to the most recent personnel orders for promotion in temporary grade for the effective date.For T grade promotions, you must meet all 3 of these requirement; for an EPP, you must meet TIG and either T&E or TIS.

Only officers who were assimilated into the Regular Corps prior to 3/23/2010 or officers called to duty since April 2010 will have Promotion Credit dates. Since we are all now legally Regular Corps, promotion credit dates have been calculated for officers who were Reserve Corps at the passing of the ACA on March 23, 2010.The formula for calculating the promotion credit date (if you don’t already have one on the PIR) is listed on Page 2 of the cheat sheet (click Competitive Eligibility, then Calculate Eligibility) on the Promotion Information web site.Officer in the previous example is a permanent O-4 in a Restricted Category. When will he be eligible for P O-5? He needs 7 years Seniority Credit for eligibility to P O-5. Add 7 years to his Seniority Credit Date: 21 September = 21 September This is the effective date of his permanent promotion if he is successful.

11Exceptional Proficiency Promotion A type of temporary grade promotion received before the officer has met all three eligibility criteria.Nominations are based on the possession of unusual levels of training and/or professional experience, or unique qualificationsOfficer can only be nominated once per gradeBoard is unaware of which officers are EPP nominees and which are eligible in their own rightPlease see the Promotion Information Page and CCI “Temporary Grade Promotions” for more detail.Ensure your file is prepared, as you cannot be nominated for an EPP again for the same grade if you are not successful.Nomination means the agency has sent forth your name to OCCO AND you were reviewed by the promotion board.Consequences of not being recommended or being in the lowest quartile are the same as for officers eligible in their own right.
12Exceptional Proficiency Promotion Eligibility EligibleGradeT&E CreditRequiredTime in ServiceRequirementTime in GradeRequirement During Current PHS TourO-24 yearsNone1 year as O-1 (as of 3/1)O-38 years1 year as O-2 (as of 3/1)O-412 years6 months on current tour as officer in the PHS Commissioned Corps (as of March 1st of the year reviewed1 year as O-3 (as of 3/1)O-517 years5 years (2 years must be as officer in the PHS Commissioned Corps)1 year as O-4 (as of 3/1)2 years as O-4(during PY cycle)O-624 years9 years (3 years must be as officer in the PHS Commissioned Corps)3 years as O-5Since those vying for an EPP are vying for a promotion in temporary grade (just earlier than they would normally be eligible), the requirements are largely the same. Only difference is the time in grade requirement for some grades.Must meet the TIG requirement and can meet either T&E or TIS, but don’t have to. TIG is the only must in addition to the billet grade.Must meet TIG. Can meet TED or TIS, but not BOTH
13Criteria for EPP Nominations Officers cannot be eligible in their own rightOfficer must meet time in grade requirementOfficer must be in a billet grade equal to or higher than the eligible rankOfficer is in compliance with all requirementsStandards of ConductLicensureCOERsBasic ReadinessOfficer must also be in a billet equal to or higher than the proposed grade. So if you are an O-4 desiring an EPP to O-5 you must be in an O-5 billet or higher.Also cannot have been reviewed by a promotion board for the same temporary grade. 1 shot at the EPP so it’s important to ensure your eOPF is adequately prepared.The nomination for EPP can be made only if the officer meets all of the above.
14Exceptional Proficiency Promotion Process OCCO will only recognize nominations from Agency/OPDIV directors or their designees.Agencies receive quotas5% of total eligible for EPP in the agencyAn officer will be advised by the agency of the EPP nomination effort, so they can prepare their eOPF.Officer and Reviewing Official Statements must be submitted to the officer’s eOPF by the deadline.Nominations from lower level officials will not be processed.Some agencies submit the OS & ROS as part of a package. For others, the officer must submit his/her own OS. The ROS always comes directly from the agency.Liaisons received a list of officers eligible for an EPP in their agency on Sept 2. The quota is 5% of the number of officers on that list (those who meet the criteria for an EPP), not 5% of total officers at the agency.Officer should check his/her eOPF after a reasonable amount of time, depending on the proximity to the deadline, to ensure all documents are in the eOPF and in the right place.
15Exceptional Proficiency Promotion Officers transferring from a nominating agency will be removed from consideration unlessSupported by the receiving agencyReceiving agency has not met its quotaOfficers transferring to a lower billet than required will be removed from considerationEPP candidates are subject to all consequences of low scoring or a Not Recommend/DeferralConsider carefully before transferring to another agency during the promotion process if you have been nominated for an EPP. We had this happen in PY10 and though the officer was successful, she was removed from the list and now cannot receive another EPP nomination for that grade.Same criteria and consequences as an officer who is eligible in his/her own right. Ensure your file is promotion ready before accepting an EPP nomination.Not recommend for not being basic ready at the pre-board (Dec. 31) check or a Board Not Recommend.

17The Process in a Nutshell 413295SuccessRatesCCMIS websiteOCCFMASH5b.7This is a general overview of the process from submission of eOPF documents to the eOPF fax line to the publishing of results to the CCMIS website.1. Officer submits documents through the eOPF fax line. They are received by a computer system at OCCO, not a fax. So if documents contain streaks or faint text, it is a result of the originating fax.2. A file room tech at OCCO must then tell the document to which eOPF it should go. This is called indexing. That’s why it’s important to have your PHS# on all documents.3. Documents are indexed to the proper section of the eOPF. 4. After December 31, when the last documents are indexed, OCCO will upload all documents for officers eligible for promotion into a Promotion Board View application. Once this is done, the board will not see any documents an officer adds after this date.5. Promotion boards meet in the spring to review all available files. 6. Their numerical scores determine the rank order list for each category and grade.5b. Success rates proposed by OCCFM and approved by the ASH are then applied by OCCO to the rank order lists to determine the cut-off scores & resulting successful lists.7. The successful lists are then reviewed for the administrative requirements. Those not meeting the requirements are removed from the promotion list. 8.The list of removed officers are routed to the OSG and the approved final promotion list is routed to OSG and ASH for approval before being published to the CCMIS website (9).OSGASH86
18Promotion Precepts (Applicable to All Classifications of Promotion) What’s included?Wt.PerformanceCOER, awards, ROS40%Professional QualificationsLicense, Advanced Degrees, Certifications, CEUs20%Career Progression/PotentialIncreased responsibility, billet, mobility, collateral duties25%Prof. Contributions to the Corps (Officership)PAC, JOAG, OBC, uniform, recruitment, mentoring,PHS support activities15%Response Readiness/OFRDMeets/Does not meetBoard doesn’t score this*0%Each precept is weighted. Performance (40%) is the heaviest.**** Therefore your performance, which you control, can greatly help or hinder your chances of promotion. There must be a balance. You should participate in PHS support activities but not to the extent that your performance suffers.Precepts 1 – 4 are scored by the Board. Precept 5 is administratively reviewed by OCCO.OFRD/Readiness no longer plays a role in the determination of the total numerical score or the rank order list. HOWEVER, basic readiness is still an administrative requirement. You must meet AND maintain basic readiness to be promoted.We get data from OFRD’s quarterly checks. If you are exempt from meeting basic readiness because you have been on duty for <1 year or another reason, you will show up as basic qualified on the list. This is not separate from OFRD requirements.
19Category BenchmarksLevels of achievement in each Promotion Precept for an officer in a given category and gradeBenchmarks determine the “best qualified” officerEach officer is compared to the best qualified officerBenchmarks are Guidelines, not requirements; an officer cannot necessarily do them all.Each Category or Discipline has developed benchmarks that it feels depicts the qualities of a well balanced officer who they consider would be the best qualified.Benchmarks are recommendations not requirements.It is not essential that “all” of the benchmarks are met but you should determine those that are critical for your discipline and career pathway and ensure that you are striving to meet them.
20The Official Personnel Folder and Officer’s Statement You are responsible to make sure appropriate items are in your eOPF in time for promotion board review.Promotion is too important to be lackadaisical or passive about the required documents. ALWAYS follow up.Your only opportunity to place items before the Promotion Board.
21Vital Promotion Documents COERsPIRCVContinuing Education SummaryOS & ROSLetters of appreciationAwardsLicenses/Certifications/CredentialsAll these forms are uploaded into a computer system that allows the board members to rapidly scan through and find what they are looking for.COERs – important to have all required COERs on file, especially from last 5 years, as applicable. You will be removed from the promotion pool (even if you are successful) if you don’t have required COERs from the last 5 years on file. (T grade)PIR – real time PIR as of the day in January/February the files are pulled /uploaded for the boards. Ensure it is accurate.CV – important to use the category’s recommended format. It will be officers from your category reviewing your file so make it easy on them. Back up CV entries with documentation, as applicable. Example: certifications, letters of appreciation, transcripts, etc.OS – In addition to the CV, your opportunity to sell yourself and quickly outline how you measure up to the benchmarks in terms of PHS support. Invest some effort into it and the CV. Ensure it’s on the 2012 form.ROS – agency’s opportunity to show its support (or not) for your promotion. View the Promotion Information Page for helpful tips.Letters of recommendation for promotion are not accepted for inclusion into the eOPF ever. Faxed copies of recommendations or any letter of appreciation that mentions promotion will be destroyed or returned.Required licenses/certifications should NEVER expire in the eOPF.
22Officer Statement One page document for officers to summarize: Your support of PHS activitiesYour commitment to visibility as an officerYour vision and expectations of a career in the PHS Commissioned Corps, including commitment to the PHS missionSubmitted through the eOPF fax lineMust be on the current year’s form!This one page document that you prepare and submit through the eOPF fax line. This is your space to shine. The Officer’s Statement (OS) should be written using succinct bullet statements, and using proper grammar and spelling.It is a fillable form so you can type directly into it. If you do not have a professional version of Adobe, save the text in Word or text processor like Notepad or Wordpad.It is essential that the bullets describe not just what organization officers are members of, but what they have contributed to those committees or groups. Board members like to see accomplishments and impact, not just membership.The OS can be found on the Promotion Information Website (CCMIS website, Services tab). The promotion board will only have access to the current year’s OS; they will not see any other OS submitted from previous years. Therefore, an officer must submit a new OS every year the officer is eligible for competitive permanent or temporary grade promotionThe document will be given an arbitrary date, regardless of when it is submitted. Please don’t be concerned with the document date in the eOPF, the date is for internal use only and will not be seen by the promotion board membersThe OS is not related to the COER, but will be indexed in the COER section of the eOPF.
23Reviewing Official Statement Allows the Agency to provide input:Promotion readinessLeadership attributesContributions to the agency missionReviewing Official is typically the 2nd line supervisor (your supervisor’s supervisor)Must be submitted through your liaisonMust be on the current year’s form!Your Reviewing Official (RO) is typically the same RO for the COER.The following factors are addressed in the ROS:Promotion Readiness: Is the officer ready for promotion and to serve at the next higher rank? [Yes/No]. Explain:Leadership: How does the officer take on a leadership role in the OPDIV/STAFFDIV/organization?Mission: How does the officer contribute to the mission of the OPDIV/STAFFDIV/organization?The ROS MUST be accessed from the CCMIS website and the Reviewing Official MUST use the current year’s version when completing this form. No other version will be accepted. It is a fillable form. The ROS is submitted by the Agency Liaison, so OCCO cannot accept an ROS through the fax lines. It is the officer’s responsibility to verify the ROS was submitted by logging onto the secure area of the CCMIS website by Jan. 15.The document will be given an arbitrary Document Date, regardless of when it is submitted. Please don’t be concerned with the document date in the eOPF; the date is for internal use only and will not be seen by the promotion board members.

25To Receive any Promotion Officers Must Meet and Maintain Basic Readiness StatusOCCO performs a pre-board (Dec. 2011) and a post-board (March 2012) Readiness checkOfficers not Basic Ready at the pre-board check will receive an automatic Not Recommend* for promotion.Officers not Basic Ready at the post-board check will be removed from the promotion pool, regardless of score.*Temporary grade – Also referred to a Retention Review BoardPrecept 5. Officers should maintain Basic Level of Readiness. While it has no numerical weight in the scoring, it is a requirement for promotion.The Office of Force Readiness and Deployment will review officers’ readiness status in December 2011 to determine who is basic qualified. Failure to be basic qualified will result in referral to a Retention Review Board and automatic Not Recommend.Failure to maintain Basic level of readiness during the post promotion board administrative file review (normally conducted in March(2012 for this cycle)) will result in removal from the final promotion list after the boards meet.
26Administrative Requirements Regardless of score, these must be met in order to be promotedRequired Annual COERs on file (last 5 years)A current satisfactory COERValid license, if requiredNo current or pending adverse actionsMeet & maintain basic level of readinessPermanent Grade OnlyCurrent 5 year physical exam in MABReport of Medical History (DD2807-1) and “Disclosure Statement” within 1 year in MABFor temporary grade promotion, officers must have required annual COERs on file for the last 5 years (as applicable).The other requirements apply to all competitive promotions.*Performance is 40% of the numerical score. So officers who are eligible for promotion are strongly recommended to have a recent COER on file, even if they are not required to submit one.**Licenses & credentials should never expire in the eOPF. Licenses must be valid at all times in the eOPF.A current letter of reprimand will keep you from being promoted. If an adverse action is pending, the promotion can be held for up to 180 days pending a decision by the SG.Meeting basic readiness is not an option.For permanent promotion, the medical requirements must be met. Links to the forms are in the secure area & under Official Forms on CCMIS.

Letter of appreciation can show contribution to JOAG, PAG, COA, etc. As much as possible, back up your claims with documentation.
30Take Home Lessons Assist your Reviewing Official with the ROS Spend appropriate time on the OSEnsure OS & ROS are on the current year’s formBe familiar with the BenchmarksBe involved in your PAC/PAGBe familiar with the Promotion Information pageBe concise & clearNotify your RO by that you are eligible for promotion and provide him/her your full name, PHS #, category and the link to the ROS page on the Promotion Information Page. In the , provide him/her with bullet points to help identify how you are ready for promotion, demonstrate leadership in the agency/command and contribute the agency mission.Put in the time and effort on the OS. It’s the most important document for Precept 4: Officership.Make it easy for the boards by being concise & clearly show how you measure up against the benchmarks.
31Take Home LessonsIf you do not concur with your COER, submit a rebuttal by Dec. 31Do not wait until the eOPF deadlineSeek help from the Liaison if an ROS or COER isn’t being done.Prepare early and oftenPromotion preparation is a marathon, not a sprintSeek help when neededWhile you have until March to submit a rebuttal to OCCO, you don’t have that long if you want it to be seen by a promotion board. It must be in your file by the time we upload files for the board viewer typically in early February.Waiting until mid to late December to submit documents may increase the chances that your documents will get caught in a backlog and/or get misfiled.Begin your preparation well before you are eligible if possible.

37Calculating Promotion Eligibility Officer is an O-5. When is he eligible for T O-6?T&E: 01 Jul years= 01 Jul 2016TIS: Has 9+ years total TIS21 Sep years= 21 Sep 2012TIG: 21 Sep yearsOfficer was CAD in PHS on 21 Sep 2009 as a CDR (O-5). When will he be eligible for T O-6?Need 24 years T&E credit. Add 24 years to his T&E Date. It’s clear this is the determining factor for his promotion eligibility because he will definitely have the required Time in Service and Time in Grade by the time he meets the T&E credit requirement.Need 9 years total time in service with at least 3 in PHS. Already has 9 years prior service, so only needs 3 years in PHS. Add 3 years to his CAD dateNeed 3 years as an O-5. Was called to active duty (CAD) as an O-5 so only needs 3 years as a PHS officer. Date will be the same as time in service above.What would be the effective date of promotion? Effective date is always the first of the month for temporary promotion. 01 July 2016 based on meeting the last requirement, i.e. T&E credit.When would he be eligible for an EPP? (He is in an O-6 billet). To be eligible for an EPP to O-6 he must meet the TIG requirement (3 years) and in this case he will meet TIS at the same time. He meets those 2 of 3 requirements on 21 September So he is eligible for an EPP to O-6 in PY If successful, he would pin-on the rank of CAPT on 1 October 2012, the effective date of the promotion.

39Promotion Board Scoring Promotion Board scoring has two parts:An overall recommendation for promotionRecommendNot RecommendDefer (Temporary grade only)A numerical score for creating the rank order listA Recommend does not ensure an officer is promoted.A Not Recommend ensures an officer DOES NOT get promoted and faces further review.A Recommend alone is not enough to promote an officer. He/she must also score highly enough to be above the cut-off line.A Not Recommend may have serious implications for an officer.
40Promotion Board Scoring Part 1: RecommendationRecommend – If the success rate was 100%, this officer should be promoted.Not Recommend – This officer should not be promoted and should be reviewed for retention.Defer (T grade only) – This officer is not ready for promotion to the next rank.Majority rules – the overall recommendation is determined by the majority.Promotion results will be determined by the number of recommended officers and the success rate.For temporary promotion, options are Recommend, Not Recommend, and DeferFor permanent promotion, options are Recommend and Not Recommend.Not Recommend may have serious consequences. It could lead to being involuntarily separated or retired.The Defer option was instituted in 2008 to give board members a less harsh option than “Not Recommend” for temporary grade eligibility. Defer is used when the officer isn’t ready for promotion but is otherwise a good officer.
41Promotion Board Results Promotion Board Score SheetBoard members can select from a list of strengths and suggestions for improvements.They can also type in written remarks.
