Senior Rater "Rating Philosophy"

Mission: Identify your best.

Develop "Rating Philosophy" and consider communicating it to rated officers.

Decide how to give ACOM's based on performance and potential (not position).

Give at least one to officers you believe to be a must select for promotion/command/school.

and/or

Maximize ACOM's on only the very best in your population.

Plan ahead, think series of reports (number of times you will senior rate an officer); Use ACOMs Sparingly.

Trends occurring:

Many are giving COM's to most rated officers' on first rating followed by ACOM if deserved (exception: 1st OER on one of the best going before a board ).

Most appear to be aiming at 1/3 ACOMs + or - depending on population (Remember, leave a cushion for unexpected rating situations).

SENIOR RATER TIPS

Center of Mass File is different from a Center of Mass Report (many ACOM officers have COM reports). However, having all COM reports places an officer at risk.

Most officers have received at least one COM (Over 92% of all CPTs; 87% of all MAJs; 85% of all LTCs). These figures continue to rise.

A COM OER, by itself, is not a killer; all boards select officers with at least one COM report; over 18,000 selected so far (many of those had multiple COMs).

Most of those who are successful will have a mix of ACOM and COM OERs, but some ACOMs in key jobs (BQ) are a must. Spikes in file are essential.

Receiving all COM OERs will place you at risk beyond promotion to Major.

Board results indicate officers with a mix of ACOMs and COMs are competitive to LTC.

Enthusiastic, but not overexaggerated, narrative, often differentiates among COM reports.
