New Performance Management Appraisal Program Debuts Soon

The human resources staff at NIH has made substantial progress with its efforts to implement the new HHS-wide performance program. The Office of Human Resources has sponsored many briefings and publicized key features throughout NIH. The PMAP replaces existing pass/fail performance programs and covers General Schedule, Title 42 and wage grade, but excludes SES and Commissioned Corps employees. The new program has four "tiers" or possible employee summary ratings: exceptional, fully successful, minimally successful and unacceptable. The NIH transition is scheduled for no later than June 30. More detailed information, including sample performance plans, IC resources and other guidance can be found at

Additionally, the NIH Employee Assistance Program and the OHR Workforce Relations Division are sponsoring several stress management seminars designed exclusively for NIH supervisors and employees. The seminars focus on techniques to deal with the changes NIH is currently experiencing. Pre-registration is not necessary. The next two lunchtime seminars will be held on Executive Blvd. Also, they will be webcast and may be viewed by visiting

The June 6 seminar is for employees, and will be held from noon to 1 p.m. in Executive Plaza North Rms. C, D, E and F. The June 7 seminar, in the Neuroscience Center's Rm. C, is for supervisors and managers and will also be held from noon to 1 p.m.
