Selection Board Candidates List Process


Selection Board Candidates List Process

Case number


The Committee was of the opinion that the current provision contained in the Canadian Forces Selection Board Guidance Manual requiring the reduction of the score of Personnel Evaluation Reports (PERs) in the previous rank by exactly half for the purpose of establishing the Selection Board Candidate List (SBCL) was unreasonable and unfair.  As such, the Committee found that this provision was flawed and did not deliver the desired effect, resulting in competitive files being automatically excluded.


The Committee recommended that the CDS put an end to the practice of automatically reducing the score of PERs in the previous rank by half for the purpose of establishing the SBCL.

Final Authority Decision

The FA did not agree with the Committee's systemic recommendation that the DGMC policy requiring the reduction of previous rank PERs by exactly 50 percent is unreasonable and unfair with respect to SBCL ranking. While the FA acknowledge that, as with most processes, there is generally room for improvement, he found insufficient evidence to support this conclusion. That said, the FA forwarded the Committee's report and its detailed analysis for DGMC's consideration and inform future review of the Selection Board process.
