Boards and Panels

The Boards and Panels Section coordinates the logistics for and administration of all Reserve Boards and Panels. This includes Promotion selection, designation, appointment, command screening and Regular to Reserve (R2R) processes.


The primary focus of the Evaluations Section is the receipt and validation of all Reserve Officer Evaluations to ensure compliance with appropriate policy. OER submission guidance is available but can be limited during the periods of heavy OER submissions and when a board or panel is in session. EER waivers are also considered by this section.


The status section processes and manages over 30 administrative processes, including, but not limited to:

  • Separations
  • Promotions
  • Conditional release request 
  • Direct Lateral/ Change-in-Rating requests
  • Reserve Retirement Requests
  • Separation Pay Requests
  • Policy Waivers (Time in Service, Commissioned Service, Age, 16/18/20 years of active duty, 1095 rule, etc.)

Update/Verify Your Record

Contact Military Records at the link above to request a copy of your Electronically-Imaged Personnel Data Record (EI-PDR). Contact your SPO to correct any errors or to submit missing documents. If a Reserve officer OER is missing, please send an inquiry to the Evaluations Query link above.

Check your readiness and Employee Summary Sheet (ESS) in CGBI for correctness and completeness.  Contact your SPO or medical representative as appropriate to correct any errors.

Verify your Reserve Points Statement in Direct Access is current, correct, and includes ALL military service. Submit a PPC Trouble Ticket if you believe your Points Statement to be in error. Make sure to submit all documentation appropriate to the issue.
