The purpose of this message is to provide guidance and procedures in support of the Qualitative Management Program (QMP).
QMP boards will be held in conjunction with the FY22 Headquarters Department of the Army (HQDA) noncommissioned officer (NCO) evaluation boards and consider Regular Army (RA) and U.S. Army Reserve Active Guard Reserve (USAR AGR) Soldiers in the rank of Staff Sergeant (SSG) thru Command Sergeant Major (CSM) for possible involuntary separation.
As a matter of equity, NCOs who have been subsequently reduced below SSG remain eligible when the basis for referral occurred as a SSG or higher rank.
The QMP board process starts upon the permanent filing of material in the performance or restricted folder of an NCO’s Army Military Human Resource Record (AMHRR).
These NCOs will be considered for denial of continued service when:
U.S. Army Human Resources Command (HRC) receives material from one of the following categories for permanent filing:
- General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand (GOMOR). This includes memorandums of reprimand issued by a general officer and those directed for filing in the AMHRR by a general officer.
- Conviction by court-martial or punishment under Article 15, Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).
- Relief for Cause noncommissioned officer evaluation report (NCOER).
- Academic Evaluation Report (DA Form 1059) indicating Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development System (NCOPDS) course failure a second time.
