Army Officer Record Brief (ORB)
What is an Officer Record Brief? And What Documentation Do You Need to Provide the MMRB?
What is an Officer Record Brief (ORB)? And how do you create one? There are several steps to follow to make your ORB as strong as possible. This article will cover the basics of this document, from what information the HQDA is looking for, to what documentation you’ll need to provide the MMRB. Hopefully you’ll find it useful. Then, you can put your record brief to work to get the job you want.
Information required by HQDA selection board
The HQDA selection board requires that a candidate submit a written officer record brief. A record brief should include all the information necessary to assess an officer’s ability and potential. In addition, the document must contain the following: a computer-generated personnel data sheet that gives a general overview of the NCO, his/her last five NCOERs, height and weight, APFT results, and other qualifications. It also includes a section for board notes. This note section should include information such as the NCO of the year, honor graduate from BNCOC, and three Article 15s in the file.
Requirements for submitting a request for constructive credit
In an officer record brief, a person who served in the United States military can request constructive credit for service. Such credit is given to certain officers who did not receive a degree of law during their military service. It is given to new Marines to create grade comparability. The use of constructive credit is mandated by U.S. law and DOD and Navy policy.
For example, an officer who has completed an advanced education or advanced training may be awarded one year of constructive service credit for each year of graduate level education. This credit cannot exceed the number of years most institutions require to complete an advanced education. The credit cannot exceed the total years of graduate level education required for an appointment in the professional specialty. The credit cannot exceed the total amount of years the officer earned in the O6 grade at the time of his or her original appointment.
Documentation required by MMRB
The MMRB is responsible for reviewing Soldiers for reclassification, change of specialty code, and worldwide deployability. MMRBs review the Soldier’s past and current job performance, military and civilian training, and Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery scores. Based on the results of MMRB reviews, the MMRB makes recommendations to the appropriate action office. The following are some examples of the documentation required by MMRBs.
The Applicant must supply the Corporation with the appropriate documents, as specified in the MMRB Loan Agreement. This includes a survey within 90 days of submitting the application, an approved site plan by governmental authorities, and a certificate of surveyors’ certification. Plans with the seal of a licensed engineer must be submitted as well. The MMRB will not approve the Loan if it is not accompanied by proper zoning and government approvals.
The MMRB convenes under a convening authority. The board is comprised of three members: the president, the medical officer, and two other voting members. Other members are the board recorder, the retention adviser, and the personnel adviser. The MMRB’s primary responsibility is to evaluate the Soldier’s tasks and duties in a global field environment. The board will review these documents in order to determine if the Soldier’s training and assignment have been optimized.
Soldiers with P3 and P4 profiles are nondeployable until their reclassification or PEB process is completed. These soldiers will not be reassigned if the PEB has not approved their profile. During the evaluation, the Soldier must complete the reclassification process and pass all other requirements before being reassigned to a new role. These Soldiers are required to complete the PEB process and have their PULHES case reviewed.
