ELIGIBILITY_CRITERIA_TABLES.PDF ON A MONTHLY (AC AND USAR ACTIVE GUARD RESERVE (AGR)) OR QUARTERLY (USAR TROOP
PROGRAM UNIT (TPU)/ARMY RESERVE ELEMENT (ARE)/MULTI-COMPONENT UNITS) BASIS.

B. THE PROMOTION BOARD MISSION IS TO VALIDATE EACH RECOMMENDATION WITH A YES/NO VOTE TO THE PROMOTION
AUTHORITY WHETHER A SOLDIER SHOULD BE INTEGRATED ONTO THE PROMOTION RECOMMENDED LIST.

(1) FOR AC AND USAR AGR: SOLDIERS MAKE A PHYSICAL APPEARANCE BEFORE A PROMOTION BOARD.

(2) FOR USAR (TPUS/ARES/MULTI-COMPONENT): SOLDIERS WILL NOT MAKE A PHYSICAL APPEARANCE TO THE PROMOTION BOARD.

C. THE FINAL DECISION TO INTEGRATE A SOLDIER ONTO THE PROMOTION RECOMMENDED LIST RESTS WITH THE PROMOTION
AUTHORITY.

D. ONCE INTEGRATED ONTO A PROMOTION RECOMMENDED LIST, SOLDIERS COMPETE FOR PROMOTION BASED ON THE
ACCUMULATION OF PROMOTION POINTS.

5. FIRST LINE LEADERS MUST COUNSEL (IN WRITING) FULLY QUALIFIED SOLDIERS UPON ATTAINMENT OF PRIMARY ZONE ELIGIBILITY
WHO ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR PROMOTION BY THE UNIT CDR. COUNSELING MUST IDENTIFY THE BASIS FOR NON-
RECOMMENDATION COMPLETE WITH AN ACTION PLAN DESIGNED TO OVERCOME DEFICIENCIES. COUNSELING IS MANDATORY UPON
INITIAL NON-RECOMMENDATION ONCE THE SOLIDER IS FULLY ELIGIBLE (WITHOUT WAIVER) AND A MINIMUM OF QUARTERLY,
THEREAFTER, UNTIL THE SOLDIER IS RECOMMENDED FOR PROMOTION OR IS NO LONGER ELIGIBLE FOR RECOMMENDATION.

ACTUAL ACHIEVEMENTS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS. EACH SOLDIER BEARS A PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THEIR
RECORDS ARE ACCURATE AND REFLECT ALL INFORMATION NECESSARY TO COMPUTE ACCURATE PROMOTION SCORES.

THE S-1, UNIT HR SPECIALIST AND THE MILITARY PERSONNEL DIVISION (MPD) WILL ASSIST SOLDIERS IN THIS MATTER. SOLDIERS
WILL COMPETE FOR PROMOTION: FOR AC ONLY: BASED ON AUTOMATICALLY CALCULATED PROMOTION SCORES GENERATED
FROM BOTH PERSONNEL AND TRAINING DATA IN ELECTRONIC MILITARY PERSONNEL OFFICE SYSTEM (EMILPO) AND ARMY
TRAINING REQUIREMENTS AND RESOURCES SYSTEM (ATRRS).

INCORRECT PROMOTION SCORES PREDICATED ON MISSING OR INACCURATE PERSONNEL/TRAINING INFORMATION DOES NOT
CONSTITUTE A BASIS FOR PROMOTION SCORE ADJUSTMENTS TO AFFECT PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED PROMOTIONS. CORRECTIONS
TO EITHER THE PERSONNEL OR TRAINING RECORDS AFFECT PROMOTION SCORES MOVING FORWARD NOT RETROACTIVELY.
THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS PROVISION.

7. SOLDIERS AND LEADERS ALIKE SHOULD SET PRECISE GOALS WITH A SELF-IMPROVEMENT TRAINING PROGRAM TO INCREASE A
SOLDIER’S POTENTIAL FOR PROMOTION.

8. IF THE PROMOTION AUTHORITY IS A GENERAL OFFICER HE OR SHE MAY DELEGATE, IN WRITING, HIS OR HER PROMOTION
AUTHORITY TO THE DEPUTY CDR OR THE SENIOR PERSONNEL MANAGER. THE PERSON TO WHOM PROMOTION AUTHORITY IS
DELEGATED MUST BE A FIELD GRADE OFFICER, FILLING A LTC OR HIGHER CODED POSITION.
