MILPER MESSAGE 23-447, 2ND QTR, FY24 VOLUNTARY TRANSFER INCENTIVE PROGRAM (VTIP) FOR ARMY COMPETITIVE CATEGORY (ACC) OFFICERS, ISSUED: [10/25/2023 9:04:30 AM].

MILPER MESSAGE 23-448, AMENDMENT TO MILPER MESSAGE 23-383, 19 SEPTEMBER 2023, SUBJECT: RELEASE OF THE CALENDAR YEAR 2024 (CY24) ARMY MEDICAL DEPARTMENT (AMEDD) STRATEGIC BILLET (SB) SLATE, ISSUED: [10/25/2023 9:40:36 AM]. See the message for changes.      c. MILPER MESSAGE 23-449, EVALUATION REPORTING SYSTEM INVALID REPORT CREATION AND SUBMISSION PRACTICES – “CHURNING REPORTS”, ISSUED: [10/25/2023 9:48:55 AM]. The purpose of this message is to detail an unacceptable evaluation practice that some rating officials are executing within the Evaluation Entry System. The unacceptable practice, referred to as “churning,” involves generating multiple, and usually short, evaluation reports with no true event-driven requirement for the type of evaluation report submitted (e.g., Change of Rater with no alteration to rating chain, Change of Duty with no change to assigned duty, and Retirement with no approved retirement request). This unacceptable practice circumvents Army Regulation (AR) 623-3, and the authorized reasons for an evaluation submission without a valid change in status. This is contrary to the spirit and intent of the regulation and undermines the selection process for all rated Soldiers. This practice must be discontinued. The Army expects and requires leaders to be aware of policies and procedures and to apply and uphold established, expected standards without bias.      d. MILPER MESSAGE 23-450, JOINT MERITORIOUS UNIT AWARD TO HEADQUARTERS, JOINT TASK FORCE 339, ISSUED: [10/25/2023 11:22:19 AM].
