MILLINGTON, Tenn. – Navy is set to deploy a new version of the performance evaluation software used throughout the fleet, officials said Feb. 6.
“NMCI (Navy Marine Corps Internet) will begin deploying NAVFIT98A Version 30 throughout the –Non- Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNET) during scheduled maintenance periods starting February and concluding mid-March,” said Jim Price, director, Performance Evaluation Division, Navy Personnel Command.
Version 30 supports the lieutenant force distribution policy change announced in NAVADMIN 219/11, incorporates the chief evaluation (CHIEFEVAL), previously available only through PDF and provides additional lines to the comments block for FITREPS, CHIEFEVALS, and EVALS. In addition, this version is a complete technology refreshment to increase compatibility across various workstation configurations.
The NAVFIT98A Version 30 update will be pushed to all NMCI NIPR workstations throughout the Navy as a core application; however the new software will not be automatically loaded on the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET).
“It will not be listed as a core application for SIPR computers, but will be available by request,” said Price. Beginning 28 February the old version of NAVFIT98A will be removed from all SIPR workstations.
Commands that require NAVFIT98 Version 30 on their SIPR workstations can submit a Move/Add/Change (MAC) request through their command information systems technician.
Non-NMCI users may download NAVFIT98A Version 30 along with frequently asked questions and a reference guide on using the application at the following website: http://www.public.navy.mil/BUPERS-NPC/CAREER/PERFORMANCEEVALUATION/Pages/SoftwareForms.aspx
NAVFIT98A is used by Navy to create, store, organize, validate and print officer fitness reports and enlisted evaluation reports for signature as well as the summary sheet required for each reporting group to be mailed to the NPC. The reports are saved to Sailors official military personnel file and may be reviewed by selection and promotion boards.
Users will receive an NMCI User Alert email providing the dates of the upgrade and any actions required by the user.
