This is the first master sergeant promotion cycle to incorporate a two-phase selection process.The two-phase process included a Phase I score based on Weighted Airman Promotion System factors (enlisted performance reports, time in grade, time in service, decorations points, promotion fitness examination and skills knowledge test scores). Eligible Airmen whose Phase I scores met the Phase I cutoff for their control Air Force specialty code are considered for promotion during the Phase II central evaluation board.
Airmen who were considered for promotion during Phase II will see a folder titled "15E7" in their Board folder in the Personnel Record Display Application. In the "15E7" folder is an overview of what the central evaluation board reviewed during the Phase II process.
Airmen selected for master sergeant will be promoted in order of promotion sequence number beginning Aug. 1. Selections are tentative until the data verification process is complete, which is normally within 10 days of the promotion release date.
