Administrative Officers will be subject to Regular Review by their Supervisors on a periodic basis. The length of time between two consecutive Regular Reviews of an Administrative Officer will not exceed five years. The evaluation process will be comprehensive by addressing all dimensions of the administrator's responsibilities and considering input from all appropriate constituencies related to these responsibilities.
Administrative Officers will ensure that formal Regular Review processes are in place for their staff consistent with this Policy.
Administrative Officers in academic and non-academic units are reviewed by their Supervisors who assess their performance on an annual basis to recognize accomplishment, provide feedback for improvement, and determine compensation. However, based on the diverse characteristics of these units and their operations, the scope and comprehensiveness of the annual review process vary widely.
This Policy formalizes a Regular Review of Administrative Officers to be conducted periodically by their Supervisors. These Regular Reviews will assess effectiveness in meeting strategic goals and administrative expectations and provide constructive observations and guidance for improvement. The Regular Reviews will also be instrumental in guiding professional growth and development.
