Subject:            Progress Reviews for Non-Senior Executive Service (SES) Employees
 
This serves as a reminder to Rating Officials of the requirement to conduct progress reviews for non-SES employees.  
 
The performance appraisal cycle for non-SES employees is October 1 through September 30, each fiscal year.  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.
 
During the mid-point of the performance appraisal cycle, Rating Officials are to ensure that the proper Employee Performance Appraisal Plan (EPAP) form is used; the 2007 edition of the form DI-3100 for non-supervisory employees and DI-3100S for supervisory employees.  
 
Rating Officials are 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.  Rating Officials should also ensure that all critical elements in EPAPs are strategically aligned, results focused, and the criteria under each critical element is measurable. Attachment 1 may be used for guidance during this process.

If you have any questions, please contact Tracy Ware, Human Resources Specialist, Division of Human Resources Policy and Workforce Planning, at 202-208-6262.
