DA Form 67-9-1 Officer Evaluation Report Support Form
What Is DA Form 67-9-1?
DA Form 67-9-1 or the Officer Evaluation Report Support Form is a document used during the process of officer evaluation along with the DA Form 67-9, Officer Evaluation Report. In particular, this form provides a self-assessment of the rated officer, their evaluation of personal responsibilities, valuable skills, competence, and achievements.
In April 2014 the U.S. Army has changed their officer evaluation reporting system to a new format to analyze and rate officer performances in a manner more in line with Army doctrine, switching over from the DA 67-9 series to the DA 67-10 series. The new series will evaluate officers in different ways based on their rank. The latest printable version of the DA 67-9 form was released by the Department of the Army in October 2011 and is available for download below.
The form - sometimes referred to as the DA Form 67 for short - should not be confused with the DD Form 67, Form Processing Action Request. This form is used to request an addition to the DoD database or to request a revision or cancellation of an existing DD Form.
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.
