Management Personnel Plan (MPP) Performance Evaluation Process

MPP employees are evaluated after six months and subsequently at one year intervals coinciding with the fiscal year. Evaluation of MPP employees must cover managerial responsibilities and requirements common to such positions, as well as unique items the evaluator identifies as specific to the organizational unit involved, and campus priorities and programs.

Performance management is the process by which supervisors and employees work together to plan, monitor, and review an employee's work objectives and overall contributions to the work unit. It is essential for helping your university achieve its mission and strategic goals.

The CSU's Performance Management Toolkit provides managers with various resources for managers including articles, sites, tools, on-demand courses, books, videos, and podcasts.

In developing performance goals for the upcoming evaluation period, we encourage you to establish some goals focused on professional development.

SDSU's learning portal, CSULearn, is a valuable resource in professional development offering over 3,500 online courses on various topics including computer programs such as Microsoft and Adobe products, professional certifications, and business skills (communication, customer service, management).
