Subject:          Progress Reviews for non-Senior Executive Service Employees and
                       Performance Employee Performance Appraisal Plans
 
This serves as a reminder to Rating Officials of the requirement to conduct progress reviews for non-Senior Executive Service employees (SES).  Rating Officials are responsible for certifying to their Servicing Human Resources Offices that they have completed progress reviews for all employees who are on an Employee Performance Appraisal Plan (EPAP).
 
The performance appraisal cycle for non-SES employees is October 1, 2007 through September 30, 2008. The minimum appraisal period for an employee is 90 calendar days. Therefore, mid-term progress reviews are to be completed at the mid-point of the performance appraisal cycle.
 
Rating Officials are also encouraged to make changes to the critical elements in the EPAP if the performance expectations have changed due to new or changing duties and/or performance requirements. Attachment 1, Mid-Year Performance Management for Rating Officials is included for use during this process.
 
During the mid-point of the performance appraisal cycle, Rating Officials are to ensure that the proper EPAP form, 2007, DI-3100 for non-supervisory employees and DI-3100S for supervisory employees is used. Rating Officials should ensure that all critical elements in EPAP’s are strategically aligned, results focused and that the criteria under each critical element are measurable. A model EPAP, Attachment 2, is included to provide Rating Officials a sample of clearly aligned, results-oriented measures with differentiation at each level.
 
If you have any questions, please contact Tracy Ware on 202- 208-6262.
