The Performance Evaluation process is initiated by the Human Resources Office, which is responsible for issuing the appropriate forms and instructions. The procedure is as follows:
- Supervisors and employees are notified of the time schedule of the annual review process and are given the cost-of-living adjustment and the merit adjustment rates, if applicable.
- Supervisors are provided with evaluation forms for each employee in their department. The immediate supervisor prepares the evaluation and signs it. The evaluation form is then submitted to the appropriate Senior Cabinet Officer by the supervisor.
- The Senior Cabinet Officer reviews the form and discusses any concerns with the supervisor. Upon determination that the evaluation is fair and appropriate, the Senior Cabinet Officer signs the form and returns it to the immediate supervisor.
- The supervisor schedules a meeting with the employee to discuss the evaluation, allowing several days' advance notice in order to give the employee time to prepare for the discussion. A copy of the completed evaluation is given to and retained by the employee as part of the evaluation process.
