Can a 1SG, CSM, or SGM Provide Input Into My Evaluation Report Even If They Are Not In My Rating Chain?

Is there anywhere in the regulations that give the 1SG the authority for input on an evaluation even if they are not in the rating chain? if so where can I find it this information?

Bottom line

Yes, if there are obvious inconsistencies or administrative errors. In addition there will be an undocumented review of completed NCOERs completed by a Senior NCO in the organization This undocumented review may be conducted by the 1SG if he deems it necessary. Paragraph 2-15f goes on to state An additional, yet undocumented, review of completed NCOERs should be done by the senior NCO in the organization to ensure oversight of NCOs’ performance.


In accordance with (IAW) AR 600-23 para 1-10 no person may require changes be made to an evaluation report…Members of the rating chain, S-1, administrative office, will point out obvious inconsistencies or administrative errors to the appropriate rating officials.
