Will current SR SRPEs override prior annual SR SRPEs?

No. All completed/annual SRPEs are stand alone and remain in the system.

Under Policy Paragraph 4, can you explain the methodology used in determining the order of the defined phases? Also, why aren’t the GS14s and GS15s phasing in at the same time?

The NH-IVs will be converted to GS equivalency in the SRPE system, using demo conversion rules, step 4, for SRPE implementation purposes. The GS14 equivalents will go in first (as they are the largest population competing for most BQs and talent management opportunities) followed by the GS13 equivalents (the future BQs etc.)….This phased approach ensures the right people enter first, followed by the remaining AAAW, and to ensure the SRs are subject to an overwhelming workload during initial transition.

Will the results of this evaluation help determine training and promotion opportunities for acquisition professionals?

An open dialogue among the AAW member, rater and SR is strongly encouraged, and suggested for utilization during the IDP development/update process.

Because these are going to be annual evaluations of potential, can the SR potentially change the evaluations of potential determinations of past and current personnel to adjust how they have allocated their evaluation of potential to the 4 rating types?

No. Once the evaluations of potential are deemed final in the system (7 days after completion and submission) they cannot be modified/changed.

This sounds like a process for identifying acquisition professionals who appear to be candidates for promotion. Is that correct?

The SPRE is a tool to evaluate the potential of civilian employees in designated grades/broadbands to perform in positions of increased responsibility or for selection into positions in designated senior leadership programs. For example, positions subject to the Army Acquisition Corps (AAC) Centralized Selection List (CSL) boards as well as for the Competitive Development Group/Army Acquisition Fellowship (CDG/AFF and the Defense Acquisition University – Senior Service College Fellowship (DAU-SSCF) program boards. It should help identify if you are on-track for the future positions you aspire to, or to identify positions to help you get to where you aspire to be.

Are individuals typically involved (or recommended to be) in the SRPE process? After implementation, I plan to schedule meetings with my rater and senior rater to discuss my potential. I would imagine the process is time consuming and now the rater/senior rater’s number of evaluations is increasing.

An open dialogue between the AAW member, rater and SR is strongly encouraged, and suggested during the IDP development/update process and prior to completion of the SRPE. While it will take some time, these conversations are imperative to AAW career development. And while initially, the process may be time consuming, once the SRPE becomes a part of civilian’s documentation, it will not seem cumbersome.

Should we advise SR’s to be careful to not give the Exceptional Potential rating unless they have a real superstar for an employee because this stays with them throughout their career as a SR?

SRs need to be cognizant of the 50% profile rule and ensure they assign their evaluations of potential accordingly.

Can an SES be the rater and senior rater for an employee, or is the SES’s supervisor the senior rater? Also, can a senior rater be a non-acquisition employee?

SRPE Policy, dated 10July2015, Paragraph 4m, defines the SR to be the rater/supervisor, of the employee’s rater. Yes, the rater and/or the SR may be designated non-acquisition workforce.

The SRPE form mentions that an employee may file a reclama. However, the policy does not mention who hears the reclama, or how the responding official responds to the employee’s reclama. Also, if the decision is made to change the potential, who makes the system change and how does this play into the less than 50% mandate?

This provision is a new to the SRPE process, as requested by Army Office of General Counsel (OGC). Essentially, the SRPE remains in the CAMP/CAPPMIS system until such time as the AAW member applies for one of the BQ positions/acquisition leader development opportunities (i.e. CSL Board, CDG/AAF and some SSCs). The SRPE would be submitted by the AAW to the Selection Board, as part of their application process. If the AAW member did not concur with the SRPE that was prepared, he/she would “click” Reclama and upload a Memorandum For Record (MFR) which would indicate his/her non-concurrence, with reason. It would not change the rating/profile of the SR, it would […]
