Please complete and submit your online self-evaluation. You and your supervisor should then set a meeting to discuss your performance feedback and your goals/priorities for the upcoming year. Once you have met with your supervisor, please complete the online approval process. All performance evaluations must be marked “complete” in PeopleSoft by Thursday, June 1.
