Performance Management
Performance management is the systemic process of engaging employees in establishing performance plans that support organizational and mission goals and objectives; for monitoring and developing employees; for assessing performance, and for rewarding employees for their contributions. 

In the Department of the Navy, there are two different appraisal systems that apply to GS and Federal Wage System (FWS) civilians:

The DoD Personnel Management and Appraisal Program (DPMAP) which applies to all employees who converted from Interim Performance Management System(IPMS).

The Performance Appraisal Review System (PARS), which applies to all employees, both GS and FWS System, whose positions were never covered under IPMS.

While both of the above appraisal systems are similar in that they are both two-level appraisal systems, there are some significant differences with the processes and forms used.

Note: The performance management system information contained on this website does not apply to members of the SES, who are covered by the SES Appraisal System.
