Performance Management Updates

The Performance Management Program is the cornerstone of the District’s effort to create a more productive and accountable workforce. Active participation demonstrates a commitment to employee performance and the performance of the District government.

To provide employees with every opportunity to complete their annual goals and ensure their continuous professional development it is imperative that performance plans be completed as close to the beginning of the fiscal year (October 1, 2022) as possible and to strive to have them completed no later than November 18, 2022.    The planning phase for Fiscal Year 2023 runs through October 1, 2022, with managers encouraged to begin drafting performance plans as early as September, outside of PeopleSoft, and to have new performance plans developed for incumbent employees by October 1, 2022. During the planning phase, managers are required to develop, communicate, and finalize employee performance goals for Fiscal Year 2023. Performance Plans provide a framework for developing the skills of the workforce and lay the groundwork for conducting meaningful performance evaluations at the end of the fiscal year.  It is important that employees understand the importance of their work and its connection to the agency mission.  Every employee should have a clear line of sight from their own S.M.A.R.T. goals all the way to the agency’s mission statement.  

Developing employee performance plans by October 1, 2022 provides employees with a full fiscal year to achieve their goals and be properly evaluated. This requires that Performance Plans be developed, entered and finalized in the PeopleSoft ePerformance system as close to October 1 2022 as possible and no later than November 18, 2022.  Afterwards the PeopleSoft ePerformance System will be open on the 15th and 30th of each month or the closest business days for plan modification through June 30th, 2023.  

FY2023 should be initiated and submitted as soon as the fiscal year begins on October 1, 2022. Managers are encouraged to take a proactive approach and complete the planning phase by October 1, 2022.  

Managers of employees that are hired after October 1, 2022, will have 30 days from the hire date to create and finalize their plans which can be done until June 30, 2023. New performance plans should be in place within 30 days for those employees who enter new positions or into positions with vastly different duties, are promoted or are otherwise subject to other personnel actions.  This can be done through June 30, 2023.
