Managers should follow the process to sign off on the form. For mid and end of year reviews, the form will go back to the employee to review and sign off.
End of year review
Managers should complete the end of year review as usual with staff members. Be sure to obtain staff members’ PPSN and NSSO User ID to complete the attached template in the forms section.
Complete the template, making sure to update all required information.
Create a CMS case for the PMDS team by using the “attach” button and uploading the template to the case. Line Managers with no access to a PC should submit the evaluation and narrative to their local HR unit, which will then complete the template and submit to NSSO on their behalf.
For local HR units
For all local HR units who manage the PMDS ratings for their staff, contact the NSSO to avail of the mass upload facility.
In order to ensure that all data is updated accurately, please note the following:
- Only PMDS data updated to the PMDS template form will be accepted
- You do not need to submit the completed annual review form – this should be completed and dealt with as normal
- The NSSO will not be responsible for the checking the accuracy of data supplied. This is the responsibility of the officer completing the template
- For staff who have taken a career break, shorter working year, long term sick, etc. the evaluation should be awarded on the performance for the period worked.
