Before moving forward be sure you are looking at the current BUPERS instruction. The 1st instruction which pulls up from google on MyNavyHR.navy.mil is outdated.
BUPERS Instruction 1016.10 is the Navy’s Official Manual on reporting via the EVAL and FITREP system. This Navy Eval Manual was last updated in 1 December of 2021.
The intent behind BUPERS INST 1610.10 is to publish revised guidance for performance evaluation and to publish the revised Navy Performance Evaluation Manual (EVALMan). This revision provides updated administrative and policy changes affecting Navy’s Performance Evaluation System. Major changes are listed in paragraph 5. This eval manual is a complete revision and should be read in its entirety.
The instruction applies to all Navy Active Duty, Full Time Support and Reserve Duty personnel.

If there is one instruction a Naval Professional should have on their desk it’s BUPERS 1610.10. Very rarely does a week go buy when I don’t pull out the 1610.10 to check a date, verify reporting senior requirements or check my EP/MP/P ratios
