Management Evaluation Progress

The new online management performance appraisal process was rolled out for the 2017-18 reporting year. Managers now join employees and other bargaining units in doing their performance appraisals online. Although the new process is more streamlined than the previous process, we understand that it's sometimes challenging to get started with something new. Here's a snapshot of where we are in the process:

Please recall that the first stage of the standard management evaluation cycle, the planning process, ends September 30th.  Completing the assessment of prior year results for 2017-18 (via the annual management evaluation) is crucial to informing the 2018-19 planning process.  I would encourage all managers and supervisors to complete the 2017-18 management evaluation as soon as possible so that adequate time can be made to establish current year plans based on previous year's results.  As a reminder, here is an overview of the complete management evaluation cycle:


Evaluation Cycle

The annual evaluation cycle is the July 1 through June 30 fiscal year.  (The probationary cycle is the 6-month period beginning with the Employee's date of employment.)  

Planning:  July 1 - September 30

Employee and Rating Supervisor identify work products or objectives to be measured, check priority work products or objectives, and complete professional development plan in Part I. Rating Supervisor checks priority factors in Part II that will be emphasized in the evaluation.   

Measurement and Informal Assessment: October 1 - May 31

  • Rating Supervisor and Employee discuss performance progress at least once during a mid-cycle performance evaluation.
  • Rating Supervisor monitors performance progress and provides coaching as necessary.  

Formal Assessment: June 1 - June 30

  • Employee completes work results and professional development plan results in Part I and completes comments in Parts I and II.  The Rating Supervisor reviews the self-evaluation with the Employee.
  • Rating Supervisor assigns ratings and completes comments for performance work products and objectives in Part I, for proficiency factors in Part II, for summary evaluation in Part III, and for the overall rating in Part IV.
  • Rating Supervisor completes the evaluation, forwards it for review and approval by the Reviewing Officer, and then provides and discusses the evaluation with the Employee.
