DA Form 67-10-3 otherwise called the Strategic Grade Plate (O6) Officer Evaluation Report is used within the Department of the Army (DA) to provide the DA Headquarters (HQDA) with useful and valuable information about the competence, mental and physical condition and potential for promotion of an officer. The DA 67-10-3 is used when evaluating colonels.
The DA-issued form was revised in November 2015 and is valid and in use today. An up-to-date fillable DA Form 67-10-3 is available for download below.
The form - sometimes referred to DA Form 67 for short - should not be confused with the DD Form 67, Form Processing Action Request which is used to request a revision or cancellation of an existing form in the DoD inventory or to add a new one to the Army database.
The United States Army introduced a new officer evaluation system on April 1, 2014. The new DA 67-10 Series presents a new format of evaluation to analyze and rate officer performances more precisely and in line with Army doctrine.
The DA Form 67-10-3 and other reports in the series replaced the DA Form 67-9, which was universal for all officers despite their rank.
The report is prepared by the rating chain, which consists of a rater and senior rater. An intermediate rater may also take part in the evaluation. The process of officer evaluation includes supervision, performance evaluation, writing a self-assessment and a face-to-face interview with the raters. The DA 67-10-3 is forwarded to the Department of Army Headquarters (HQDA) upon completion.
