The DoD Performance Management and Appraisal Program (DPMAP) (DoD Instruction 1400.25, Vol. 431)will be implemented within the National Capital Region Medical Directorate on 1 July 2017. It is designed to do the following:
  1. Provide a framework for supervisors and managers to communicate expectations and job performance.

  2. Link individual employee performance and organizational goals.

  3. Facilitate a fair and meaningful assessment of employee performance.

  4. Establish a systematic process for planning, monitoring, evaluating, recognizing and rewarding employee performance that contributes to mission success.

  5. Nurture a high-performance culture that promotes meaningful and ongoing dialogue between employees and supervisors, and holds both accountable for performance.

The appraisal cycle is from April 1 through March 31 of each calendar year. The minimum period of performance is 90 calendar days where the employee will be rated based on the period of demonstrated performance.

MyPerformance is the automated tool to be used by supervisors and employees for establishing performance plans, tracking progress, and evaluating performance. For supervisors and/or employees who do not have access to the electronic MyPerformance appraisal tool, they must use the paper copy of DD Form 2906 to document the performance plan, progress review(s) and rating of record.
