Employee Development and Performance Review (EDPR) Process

The Office of Human Resources is thrilled to support employees and supervisors in the annual Employee Development and Performance Review process. The review cycle is based on a fiscal year. The review period typically begins on July 1 with approved employee and professional development goals and concludes on June 30 of the following year with a self-evaluation and supervisor review. Employees and supervisors may refer to the Employee Development and Performance Review Flow Chart for reference about the milestones of the review period.

The Employee Development Performance Review Form should be used in the beginning of the year to establish approved employee and professional development goals, as agreed between employee and supervisor. The same form can be used for the end-of year review that starts with a self-evaluation by employee, as well as supervisor feedback.

Completed and signed forms may be submitted to the Office of Human Resources through this link:
