Evaluating Suitability Across Services
/reports/2020/10/evaluating-suitability-across-services
This report focuses on two distinct, but related topics: enlistment waivers and entry-level separations. The waiver process recognizes that some young people have made mistakes and overcome their past behavior or have had a medical condition that warrants review. A one-time incident or issue may not accurately reflect the character or potential for someone to serve. ELS length and administrative separation policies provide an orderly means to discharge those found to be unsuitable to serve. In this light, two offices within the OSD–Personnel and Readiness (the Offices of the Under Secretary of Defense for Accession Policy (AP) and Officer and Enlisted Personnel Management (OEPM)) asked CNA to evaluate the Services’ policies, practices, and successes for determining suitability for service at accession (enlistment waivers) and in service (ELS length and reasons for early separation). In this second of two reports, we 1) determine the probability of, and reasons for, separation among those who access with enlistment waivers, 2) examine the arguments for and against extending ELS, as well as inconsistencies in ELS separation reasons, and 3) make recommendations.

Evaluation of the Fitness Report System
/reports/2012/evaluation-of-the-fitness-report-system
The Fitness Report (FitRep) is an evaluation tool filled out by a Marine’s reporting senior (RS) and reviewing officer (RO) that communicates the reporting officials’ assessments of the Marine’s performance and character to a variety of boards. Today’s FitRep system was implemented on January 1, 1999. Like the previous system, it supports promotion boards’ selection and retention of the most qualified Marines in the grades of sergeant through major general, the slating of officers for command or resident school billet assignments, and all other billet assignments. The Director, Manpower Management Division, asked CNA to review whether the system is accomplishing what the Marine Corps intended. Specifically, the director would like to know whether the current FitRep system is suffering from grade inflation, whether it is fair to all officers, and whether it contributes to the challenges that leaders and manpower process managers face in selecting the most qualified officers for promotion and career progression. Although enlisted Marines in paygrades E-5 through E-9 also receive FitReps, we were asked to focus solely on Marine officers.
