Policy Statement

Each supervisor is required to conduct a performance evaluation annually of each employee to provide systematic and regular discussion, review and evaluation of the employee’s work and progress. Evaluations are structured around Core Performance Values, which typically include mission, customer service, collaboration and partnership, technical skills and knowledge, quality and productivity, problem solving, and additional items as established by the Office of Human Resources to assess both conduct and contributions.


Formal performance appraisals are conducted annually during periods announced by the Office of Human Resources.

The performance review process includes employee self-evaluation and is intended to be interactive and increase communication and collaboration.

Each employee should complete their self-evaluation. Each supervisor should complete and discuss an employee’s evaluation with them.

Completed evaluations are retained in the employee's electronic personnel file.
