Evaluation Entry System (EES) is an administrative platform where users can request and grant Evaluation Reporting System (ERS). ERS itself allows the Non-commissioned Officer Evaluation Reports (NCOER) and Officer Evaluation Reports (OER) users to view and keep track of their evaluation information updated by the Interactive Personnel Electronic Records Management System (iPERMS) and the Human Resources Command Evaluation Systems Branch.
The ERS provides information on the best-qualified officers and non-commissioned officers to receive promotions and higher position assignments. It also presents information on Soldiers who must be eliminated, retained in grade, or maintained on active duty.
This system is a replacement for the Interactive Web Response System used for evaluation monitoring as a part of the Army’s modernization system. It is also used to obtain Academic Evaluation Reports (AER) and the profile history of the senior raters.
EES Army is constantly refined. Recently, the HRC Evaluations Branch is attempting to upgrade the system by incorporating “Manage Rating Chain” as a new feature, which allows the key personnel and unit such as S-1 or commanders to establish rating procedures and recognize rating officials according to the authorized organization structure.
As mentioned before, the EES Army enables the monitoring of Non-commissioned Officer Evaluation Reports (NCOER) and Officer Evaluation Reports (OER). There are various reasons to receive the OER or NCOER. Assuming that you have been responsible for your current position for 90 days at least, here are some of the most common Army OER types you may receive:
- Annual Report
This is most likely to be the most common OER type, which is received after you’ve been assigned for 12 months in a specific duty position.
- Extended Annual Report
This report has two different types. The first type is a mandatory one to cover non-rated time period following the prior report. The second type is optional and utilized in certain situations only.
- Change of Rater Report
This OER type is received by an officer if their present boss moves from the current duty position—be it due to promotion, transfer, separation, or retirement.
- Change of Duty Report
This report is received when an officer is assigned to a new duty position, usually from a transfer or promotion from their prior job.
- Temporary Duty, Special Duty, or Temporary Change of Station Report
It is given when a soldier is relocated temporarily to a new official station or assigned to a temporary duty for over 90 days. However, a DA 1059 form is used instead of this report if the soldier is attending a military school.
- Release from Active-Duty Service Report
This report is typically provided by the end of deployment. It is exclusively used for National Guard (ARNG) & Army Reserve (USAR) as well.
- Failed Promotion Selection Report
This report is provided only for the active-duty army officers and not for National Guard (ARNG) & Army Reserve (USAR) when the officer is transferred over for promotion purposes.
