What Is DA Form 67-10 Series?
The DA 67-10 Forms are a series of five forms used during the Officer Evaluation Process. This series includes five forms introduced in April 2014 and was meant to optimize the methods of data collection compared to the DA 67-9 Forms previously used. All DA 67-10 Forms were last revised in November 2015 - those editions are valid and used today. Fillable versions of the DA 67-10 Forms are available for download below.
The series contains the following reports:
- DA Form 67-10-1 (Company Grade Plate (O1–O3); WO1 - CW2) Officer Evaluation Report) (CGP–OER), used for 2LT through CPT and WO1 through CW2;
- DA Form 67-10-2 (Field Grade Plate (O4–O5; CW3–CW5) Officer Evaluation Report) (FGP–OER), used for officers ranked major (MAJ) through lieutenant colonel (LTC) and chief warrant officer three (CW3) through chief warrant officer five (CW5);
- DA Form 67-10-3 (Strategic Grade Plate (O6) Officer Evaluation Report) (SGP–OER), used for colonels (COL);
- DA Form 67-10-4 (Strategic Grade Plate (O7) Officer Evaluation Report) (GOR–OER), used strictly for brigadier general (BG);
- DA Form 67-10-1A (Officer Evaluation Report Support Form), used to assist the rating chain with the evaluation.
Being referred to as the DA 67 for short, the reports are often confused with DD Form 67, Form Processing Action Request. This form is part of the paperwork used to request a cancellation or revision to an existing Department of Defense (DoD) form or to add a new form to the DoD inventory.
Officer Evaluation Report
Four of the DA 67-10 Forms are reports - or grade plates - and one is a supporting form. The four reports contain an assessment of the officers' performance and personal characteristics, with the key difference being the rank of the officer being rated. The fifth form is DA Form 67-10-1A, which is a universal medium for any officer evaluation.
Unlike the DA Form 67-9 Series, the newer reports are based on the rank of the officer, since different ranks require a different level of competence. The supporting form is used for the rated officers' self-assessment and serves as a medium in preparing the report. All forms are forwarded to the Department of Army Headquarters (HQDA) after completion and serve as means of providing valuable and useful information about the officer being rated. These reports are also intended to provide information about an officer’s potential for promotion.
At the beginning of the rating period, the rated soldier will receive a copy of DA Form 67-10-1A filled out by the rater and senior rater. The officer must verify having seen the completed form and provide personal identifying data within the form. The DA 67-10-1A will later be handed to the raters at a face-to-face meeting.
The rating chain preparing the report consists of a rater and senior rater; sometimes an intermediate rater can also take part in the evaluation process. The rating period lasts for at least 90 days and includes face-to-face discussions and supervision. The Army-wide standard is to file the report digitally through the Evaluation Entry System (EES) and secure them by an electronic signature.
