The Air Force on Thursday announced that it is eliminating enlisted performance reports for most junior enlisted airmen.
From now on, the Air Force will no longer evaluate active duty airmen in the ranks of airman first class or below with less than 36 months time in service, as well as reserve component airmen who are A1Cs or below.
Supervisors will still give those airmen performance feedback and Airmen Comprehensive Assessments, the Air Force said.
Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Kaleth Wright first said the service was considering eliminating A1C evaluations in an August interview with Air Force Times. Conducting formal evaluations for airmen so early in their careers was of little use, he said.
