following performance management and dispute process
information does not
apply to teachers and educational administrators
who work in DHHS schools and institutions. If you
are a "115C Educator" please go to the educator
page to read about your evaluation system.
Our department looks at
as an ongoing opportunity for communication between
you and your supervisor. Before any formal reviews
of your performance, your supervisor should first discuss
with you what is expected of you and continue giving
you feedback on your performance as time goes by.
At certain intervals in your employment with DHHS,
your supervisor will conduct formal performance reviews
to evaluate your performance. These evaluations will
first be used to determine if you have been successful
enough to move from "probationary" to "permanent" status.
(This probationary period usually lasts 9 months, but may vary with some positions.
Ask your supervisor if you are not sure about the length
of your probationary period.) After that, your supervisor
will hold "interim
reviews" on your work every six months and evaluate
your performance formally once a year.
Our Performance Management system ensures that you
- Aware of both the outcomes and the skills/behaviors
expected of you;
- Provided with continuous feedback about your performance;
- Provided with opportunities for professional development.

Make sure your supervisor provides you with a current copy of your job description and your workplan. Please review these documents carefully and make sure you fully understand them. If you have any questions, ask your supervisor for clarification.
Performance Rating Dispute Process
DHHS Directive Number III-9 outlines the Performance
Rating Dispute Process. After reaching permanent status,
you have the right to file a grievance if you disagree
with your performance rating. The directive gives details
on the process, timeframes and forms required.
