We've Simplified the PMP Year-End Appraisal - Complete the Updated Form by July 31
The PMP Redesign Team heard staff and managers and simplified the year-end form making it easier and faster to complete. This gives you and your manager more time to have a meaningful discussion. The year-end appraisal still consists of your self-review, the year-end discussion, and managers need to complete the form by July 31. The overall performance rating remains a factor in the merit increases awarded in September. Visit AsuccessfulU on the myAU portal to access your form and resources to help with the year-end process. Allow time to forward your form to your manager, have your discussion and complete the form.
