COPIES OF FITNESS REPORTS

1. OUR OFFICER FITNESS REPORTING SYSTEM ENCOURAGES DISCUSSION OF PERFORMANCE EVALUATION BETWEEN THE REPORTING SENIOR AND THE OFFICER REPORTED UPON. IN THE CASE OF JUNIOR OFFICERS THE REPORT MUST BE SHOWN, AND PERFORMANCE AND CAREER ASSESSMENT MUST BE PROVIDED. COPIES OF THE REPORTS MUST BE SUPPLIED UPON DETACHMENT. THESE ARRANGEMENTS PERMIT OFFICERS TO JUDGE AND IMPROVE CAREER PERFORMANCE.

2. FOR MANY YEARS, WE HAVE ENCOURAGED NAVAL OFFICERS TO REVIEW THEIR SERVICE RECORDS IN BUPERS WHENEVER THEY ARE IN WASHINGTON IN ORDER TO HELP ASSESS THEIR OVERALL PERFORMANCE AND SET REALISTIC PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL GOALS. MANY LACK ADEQUATE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS, AND RECENT RECOMMENDATIONS AND SURVEYS HAVE INDICATED THAT ALTERNATE MEANS ARE NEEDED. TO ANSWER THIS NEED A COPY SERVICE WILL BE ESTABLISHED.

3. AN OFFICER MAY UPON HIS INDIVIDUAL REQUEST OBTAIN A COPY OF THE FIVE (5) MOST RECENT FITNESS REPORTS IN HIS SERVICE RECORD. BECAUSE PUBLIC LAW REQUIRES THAT SUCH SERVICES BE SELF-SUPPORTING, A HANDLING CHARGE OF $1.50 WILL BE REQUIRED. WRITTEN REQUESTS, ACCOMPANIED BY PERSONAL CHECK OR MONEY ORDER FOR $1.50 PAYABLE TO BUREAU OF NAVAL PERSONNEL MAY BE MADE DIRECT TO BUPERS (ATTN: PERS-E24). REQUESTS WILL BE FILLED ON A FIRST-IN FIRST-OUT BASIS. E. R. ZUMWALT, JR., ADMIRAL, U. S. NAVY, CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS.
