 OPM-3: Officer Evaluation Branch

The Officer Evaluations Branch (OPM-3) ensures the integrity and consistency of the Officer Evaluation System (OES) in accordance with COMDTINST M1000.3 (series) and PSCINST M1611.1 (series). The OES is designed to document and drive officer performance and conduct in accordance with Service values and standards. This information is used to support talent management decisions primarily selection boards/panels, retention, and assignments. 

OPM-3 is also the Program Manager for the Officer Specialty Management System (OSMS), the Coast Guard's official talent management system as related to officer specialties.  

This system identifies the competencies, training, education, and experience to be considered a specialist within a given field. It measures supply and demand for all officer specialties, enabling workforce management decisions, and serves as a career planning tool for junior officers.

 OPM-4: Career Management Counseling


OPM-4 provides dedicated career management counseling to officers of all grades; with special emphasis on individual competitiveness, future career decisions, and officer career management analysis while serving as a resource in responding to other staff actions concerning officer career management.  Also, upon request, to counsel officers concerning competitiveness and failure of selection for Post-Graduate and promotion for grades CWO2 thru O-6.

OPM-4 targets junior officers (O3 & below) since their careers are typically less defined than more senior officers. Consequently, they tend to have more questions about how different assignment scenarios could impact future career aspirations.  We also target officers that are in-zone for promotion to help ensure that they have a complete record going before the promotion board.  Nonetheless, any officer who desires to discuss aspects of their career will be given ample opportunity and have the ability to benefit from OPM-4 services.
