DA Form 67-9-1 Instructions
The rated officer will receive their copy of form DA 67-9-1 at the beginning of the rating period. It is their responsibility to fill in Parts V and VI and to verify their participation in a face-to-face discussion by signing Part III.
The officer must enter the names of the branches they would like to serve and future assignments they feel they suit best. This is supposed to promote a top-down emphasis on leadership communication, integrating the rated officer in the performance counseling and evaluation process.
The DA Form 67-9-1 is used only as a medium for preparing the report and is not forwarded to HQ along with the OER Report itself.
