In a continuing effort to enhance the Agency's performance evaluation process, the Office of Human Resources is sharing observations and suggestions offered by the 2005 FS Performance Boards. We hope the information below, which provides insight into what the Boards value, will assist raters and those rated in preparing illuminating, concise, and competitive performance evaluations this rating cycle. Somewhat surprisingly, even though a new AEF format was put in place this year, many of the comments from the Boards are strikingly similar to those of previous years.
