service record and the member is afforded the right to
submit a statement. Both the concurrent and regular
reporting seniors must endorse the statement.
NOT OBSERVED FITNESS AND
NOB fitness and evaluation reports are submitted to
cover short periods of time (generally less than 3
months) during which a service member cannot be
meaningfully evaluated by his or her regular reporting
NOBs are submitted to cover periods of time during
which a member is under instruction, They are also
submitted to cover periods in which a member has been
fully evaluated in a concurrent report.
An NOB fitness or evaluation report may not have
trait grades or an advancement recommendation. If
there is any trait grade, the report must be fully
completed as an observed report even though all other
traits are marked NOB.
A PIM is a narrative-style report of performance
that provides information for use in verifying training
accomplishments, making field service record entries,
and/or preparing elavuation reports.
A PIM is prepared during the following occasions:
. For a member assigned to a command for duty or
temporary duty less than 3 months
. For a period of ADDU or TAD of any length
. For AT, active duty for special work (ADSW), or
mobilization recall lasting 17 days or less
. To provide course completion information
required for page 4 of the field service record
. For any other performance that should be
brought to the attention of the reporting senior
The PIMs should be forwarded within 15 days to
the command that will prepare the regular evaluation
report for the period covered. When the commanding
officer receives a PIM on a member of his or her
command, he or she takes into account information
provided in the PIM, and appropriate entries are made
in the regular evaluation report. A sample PIM is shown
in figure 5-32.
