Performance Management Appraisal System (PMAS) The Performance Management Appraisal System (PMAS) is a management system implemented by the government of Jamaica to aid in the reformation and modernization of the public sector. The system was implemented against the backdrop that although the public sector in Jamaica has considerable experience with planning, budgeting and performance management, the mechanisms for reporting, accounting and validating performance results are not evenly well developed or fully integrated across the public sector. The PMAS system is intended to promote efficiency, greater transparency, boost staff morale, and connect their job functions to the ministry’s strategic objectives. In addition, the system helps the employee to better understand and manage his job while assessing his/her performance. The PMAS CYCLE consists of the following steps: 35

The workplan is the employees’ planned activities and targets for the review period. This document becomes due on April 30 of each year. All employees of the Ministry are expected to complete same (regardless of the point of engagement). The specifics of completing the workplan is available on the website of the Ministry of Information, Youth and Information. Otherwise PMAS sensitization workshops are held to facilitate understanding and completion of the workplan. While the quarterly reports are no longer required for submission, it is good practice to complete same as it forces the individual to evaluate the extent to which the targets are being met. Employees are expected to score the workplans at the end of the period. This, along with the half yearly evaluation, yearly evaluation and agreed changes are submitted to the PMAS unit at the end of each quarter. Additional material concerning this process can be found on the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information website. The PMAS unit is also always willing to help and support team members in managing the process. The Unit can be contacted at pm[email protected] 36

Regional Recognition Programme Team Member of the Month Each month, one team member is selected and celebrated for best displaying the characteristics that define us as a region.

Early Bird Award This is a quarterly award that is for all team members who are not field officers. The full criteria for this award will be distributed to each team member. Director’s Pick The Director’s Pick is not a merit-based award; this is a way of showcasing team members with their unique gifts, talents and contributions to the team. Each month, the Regional Director selects and highlights one team member.
