DA Form 2166-9-1A Instructions
The DA Form 2166-9-1A is regulated by the Army Pamphlet 623-3 (Evaluation Reporting System) released in November 2015. The form consists of four sections: administrative data, authentication, a duty description (filled out by the rater) and a review of performance goals and expectations (filled out by the Non-commissioned officer being evaluated).
- The evaluated NCO is required to provide some of their personal information in the first part of the form. This includes their name, social security number, rank, email address, and information on their unit. It is also necessary to state whether all Structured Self Development (SSD) and Noncommissioned Officer Education System (NCOES) requirements were met for the next grade or nominative assignment (thus showing potential for promotion).
- The second part of the form should provide identifying information on the rater and senior rater who will be performing the assessment of the NCO's performance and professionalism. This part requires the raters' names, social security numbers, and email addresses. Both raters must provide information on their rank, branch, duty, and organization. Both raters must sign and date the document in the appropriate columns.
- The third part of the DA 2166-9-1A - Duty Description - should be filled out by the rater. The last part is to be completed by the NCO - they are required to describe their expectations and goals for the upcoming evaluation period.
