DA Form 2166-8-1 "NCOER Counseling and Support Form"

What Is DA Form 2166-8-1?

DA Form 2166-8-1, NCOER Counseling and Support Form is a document required for an NCO yearly evaluation along with the DA Form 2166-8, NCO Evaluation Report. An NCO report is an annual evaluation of Non-commissioned officer in the United States Army.

The latest version of the form - sometimes mistakenly referred to as the DD Form 2166-8-1 - was issued in October 2011 by the Department of the Army (DA). An up-to-date fillable DA Form 2166-8-1 is available for download below or can be found on the Army Publications Directorate website.

Although the DA 2166-8-1 used to be an evaluation report, it is now being referred to as a Counseling and Support form in and of itself and has to be completed by a team of supervising officers just like the main report.

Other DA 2166-8-1 related forms include the following:

DA Form 2166-8-1 Instructions

The NCOER Counseling and Support Form is regulated by the Department of the Army Pamphlet 623–3 (Evaluation Reporting System) released in November 2015. Filing procedures are as follows:

  1. Part I requires basic identifying information about the non-commissioned officer being evaluated.
  2. Part II is used for identifying the evaluating officer, senior raters, and reviewers who will then be responsible for signing off the evaluation report before it is submitted. The NCO being evaluated is required to put their initials in Box D of Part II to affirm their superiors.
  3. Part III covers the NCO's duty title, the scope of daily tasks, physical fitness, and military bearing and any areas of special emphasis for the evaluating year.
  4. Part IV calls for an assessment of the NCO's compliance with core U.S. Army values. The evaluator will be then asked to report on five areas of performance: responsibility and accountability, competence, physical fitness, training, and leadership.

After completion, the DA 2166-8-1 is ready for submission to the appropriate officials along with all other required paperwork.

The Counseling and Support Form can also be filed online through the AKO website. Go to FORMS, select the INBOX tab and type 2166 into the search bar. Click on the NCOER COUNSELING AND SUPPORT FORM, then click the box next to option titled 'Complete NCOER and Support form using wizard format'. Choose the appropriate component and the status code and you are ready to file.
