Army Cut off scores
Source Documents used for Promotion Points

Question: Is the ERB going to be the new sole source
document now?

Answer: No. The ERB is simply a generated report that
captures what information is maintained in the personnel
database. Source documents remain unchanged – and
must be produced in order to affect a change to the
personnel database.

Question: What about items not listed on the ERB that
still provide points such as NCOES achievements?

Answer: NCOES achievements are worth promotion
points. In this case, the source document is the DA
Form 1059 (Academic Evaluation Report). As Soldiers
complete their respective training, the graduation codes
in ATRRS will capture those individuals who graduate
with honors and ATRRS will feed it to the personnel
database – enabling an entry on the ERB and the
correct award of increased promotion points. For
NCOES achievements that are not updated through
ATRRS, Soldiers will be required to bring their source
document (Academic Evaluation Report - AER) to their
S1 for updates through eMILPO. Although NCOES
achievements will not be viewable on the ERB until
August 2011, promotion points are still awarded

Question: Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL)
- How can I add certifications that are listed under the
COOL website towards promotion points?

Answer: You need to go to your S1 and have those
documented courses added through eMILPO.

Question: Can the DD 214 and the NGB Form 22 be
used as a source document for verification of awards for
promotion purposes?

Answer: Yes

Question: This new system may create a problem of
proper documentation. Can/should the S-1 shops still
ask for proof of documentation and create our own

Answer: It is not required, however, that can be a local
policy. Audits will be required, which will require Soldiers
to produce source documents. One of the objectives
with this change is to greatly reduce/eliminate
administrative support requirements. With effective
personnel information management techniques –
Soldiers will have the right scores because the
databases will be updated with the right information.
