Last updated August 24, 2018

The primary goals of the Staff Performance Appraisal (SPA) project are to simplify and standardize the performance appraisal process for supervisors and make performance appraisals more meaningful and transparent for staff.  This project is in response to the feedback received from a Campus Human Resources IdeaWave campaign conducted in late 2015;  the project was launched in September, 2016.

Phase I of this project focuses on policy-covered (non-represented) staff, excluding Health Sciences and Medical Center.
