NAF Referral And Selection List

Selecting Officials who use the process of filling a job through competitive procedures must complete the NAF Referral and Selection List, DA Form 4985. Part II of the DA Form 4985 requires the selecting official certify that all referred candidates have been considered and to explain the reason(s) for the particular selection.

The requirement for selecting officials to describe the reasons for their selection decision provides a record for the personnel action in the event of internal or third party review. Contemporaneous documentation of the rationale for the selection eases the installation's burden in the event of litigation challenging the selection.
