how is your overall rating determined

  • You receive points in each of the categories

Gold, Silver, Bronze or no rating (no points)

  • Your total points are added to give your total score
  • Requirements are weighted as they correlate most with success receiving the most points
  • No one requirement is mandatory
  • Your total score determines your overall rating

For 2011 troops: Gold is 1600, Silver is 1000, Bronze is 700

  • Journey to Excellence assessment is made at the time of your rechartering
  • Ships with a satisfactory performance receive the “Bronze” level of recognition
  • On a voluntary basis, units which do better than satisfactory receive higher recognition
    • “Silver” level - Effective Performance
    • “Gold” level - Excellent Performance
  • Recognition items will include a ribbon, plaque and patches for the uniform

Requirement Standards Change Each Year
  • Each year, the requirements will be reconsidered to reflect the improved performance by units
  • New standards for 2012 will likely be announced in early 2012
    • Performance for 2011 will determine the 2012 standards, so 2011 data will need to be collected and analyzed
