SUBJECT:	Performance Management Team Report
In early 1997, a Performance Management Process Team was convened. The
Team encompassed representatives from each Vice Chancellor's area, and was charged to: strengthen and expand performance management for the UCSD community; research performance management and appraisal models within or outside of higher education; design a minimalist performance management model that would provide the Vice Chancellors with greater flexibility in their application of the process; develop performance standards for the UCSD Principles of Community, Diversity, Health and Safety and Customer Service; and recommend a performance appraisal review cycle to correlate with the campus' new merit review cycle.
The Team has completed its charge and presented its report and
recommendations. As such, appropriate recommendations will be incorporated into the UCSD Implementing Procedures 23/Performance Appraisal.
A consultation process regarding the Team's recommendations is being
developed. The consultation will be scheduled for each Vice Chancellor's
area and will provide opportunities for interactive discussions about
components of the Performance Management Process Team Report and the
corresponding proposed modifications to the UCSD Implementing Procedures
23/Performance Appraisal. A campuswide review of the Implementing
Procedures will follow the consultation process with the Vice Chancellors.
The Performance Management Process Team Report is available on the Human
Resources Department's website at:
