Within the Air Force’s performance evaluation systems, there is a lack of standardization resulting in Air Force personnel spending extraneous hours generating, editing, and reediting performance evaluations. The amount of man-hours required to complete a single evaluation has never been quantified. The purpose of this quantitative, ex post facto study was to identify the variables: Rank of the Reviewer, Rank of the Ratee, the Organization, Method of Review, and Time contributing to the man-hours associated with completing performance reviews, and to provide leadership with data to support the need for change in order to reduce personnel costs by eliminating unnecessary manhours. Archival data consisted of 79 evaluations from six organizations. The most important finding suggested that organizations differ greatly in how they spend time, ranging from 10 to 24 hours to process a single evaluation, with a majority of the time spent correcting previous iterations due to lack of standardization. A recommendation of this study is to serve as a benchmark for replication and to encourage other organizations to streamline and standardize evaluations.
