Our recommended tips for completing the OERSF:
#1) Keep a running log of your significant contributions and accomplishments throughout the rating period
#2) Ask for your rater and senior rater’s support forms and ensure your support form nests with theirs.
#3) Be descriptive, both qualitatively and quantitatively, so the support form writes itself.
#4) Use Microsoft Word or another word processor to write your initial draft of the support form, then upload it into EES.
#5) Ensure your content in the contributions and accomplishments block is related to your performance objective block.
