The Boulder Campus performance management program for university staff can be found on the campus Human Resources website.
In summary, consistent with Regent Law (Article 3.D), Regent Policies (3.G.D. and 11.C.3), and the Administrative Policy Statement on Performance Ratings for Staff, all university staff, including those who are partially or fully grant-funded, must receive an annual performance plan, a performance evaluation, and an overall performance rating for each university staff position an individual employee occupies. Supervisors are not required to complete performance plans, evaluations, and overall performance ratings for retirees occupying temporary university staff positions. Lastly, although there is not a formal dispute resolution process for university staff performance management, university staff are encouraged to directly address and resolve questions and concerns regarding performance management planning and evaluation.
Supervisors must conduct evaluation meetings with their employee starting February 1 to close out the previous evaluation cycle (February 1 - January 31) of the prior year. A copy of the completed evaluation and rating form must be received by the College, via DocuSign, to email@example.com by February 18. Once received and reviewed by the College, the College will forward to Employee Relations for final processing.
The new performance management cycle begins on February 1. Supervisors must begin conducting performance planning meeting(s) to communicate new performance goals for the new performance cycle.
A copy of the completed performance plan must be received by the College, via DocuSign, to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 18. Once received and reviewed by the College, the College will forward to Employee Relations for final processing.
The performance management cycle ends on January 31.
