Kelly explained that the system was also meant to help the Air Force switch to a cloud-based evaluation system grounded in Airman Leadership Qualities, which lay out new performance areas, including emotional intelligence and adaptability, for evaluating airmen. The intent of MyEval was a good one, said Katherine Kuzminski, senior fellow and program director for the Military, Veterans & Society project at the Center for a New American Security, a Washington, D.C. think tank. The system was meant to centralize and automate necessary information like fitness and personal data into the service’s performance evaluation system, Kuzminski explained, which in turn would make it easier to implement the Airman Leadership Qualities program.

“MyEval is intended to give the Air Force the ability to track across these broader metrics, thus providing the information necessary to select, promote, and retain airmen with the skills and attributes necessary for a modernized force,” she said.

That all sounds good on paper, but the reality of myEval has fallen short. Bass’ post on Monday was not the first time service officials have acknowledged the program’s failings. In September, the Air Force vice chief of staff, Gen. David Allvin, said on a Facebook Live chat with Bass that the program was “not as well-executed as it could be,” Air Force Times reported at the time. “We own that.”
