Performance Management

The IST/OCIO staff evaluation review season occurs each year from May to August. During this time, your supervisor will provide you with a performance evaluation to give you direct feedback on job performance and to provide goals and objectives for the next review period. Annual reviews cover the period from July 1 to June 30 each year. This year, we are also participating in the Performance Management Campus Pilot Program for all non-represented staff. You can find more information here: Berkeley Achieve (please note that this website is currently being updated). 

Preparing For Your Review

The Human Resources website has information and tips on how to prepare for your performance review.

Process & Forms

IST/OCIO non-represented staff is required to use the Online Performance Evaluation Form and in addition, we will also use the Achieve Online Conversation Tool as part of the pilot program. For represented staff, please continue to use the form approved by the bargaining units: Represented Evaluation 2

To make this process more meaningful and to facilitate a candid discussion with your supervisor, staff are encouraged to complete a self-evaluation and follow tips to help prepare for your review:

  • Non-represented staff - If your position is not represented by a union, there are self-assessment review forms available. Please talk to your supervisor about which of these self-assessment forms to use.
  • Union represented staff - If your position is represented by a union, please see your supervisor for a copy of your evaluation form, which includes the job duties and competencies for your position that you will be evaluated on. You can use any of the represented evaluation forms for your self-assessment.


A performance review schedule is shared each year with IST/OCIO managers in preparation for the annual review cycle.
