APPEALS AGAINST THE APPRAISAL REPORTS AND PROMOTION POINTS MODIFICATIONS

What are the changes and why have they been adopted?

The appraisal reports, including the performance level, as well as the promotion points will soon be available in SYSPER2. As a consequence, you will be able to make an appeal as from that same date. As soon as you have seen your report and points, you can accept them, request a dialogue or make an appeal.

The 2009 appraisal and promotion exercise was the first one based on the general provisions for implementing Articles 43 and 45 of the Staff Regulations (GIP) adopted on 18th June 2008 [C(2008) 3028-1 et C(2008) 3026-1]. In the light of the experience drawn from this first exercise, it is necessary to amend the appeal stage in order to improve the way it is managed and reduce the administrative burden on the various parties involved.

The main changes are the following:

Article

Original version of the GIP

Change

Objective of the change

GIP 43,
Art. 8

GIP 45,
Art. 6

Possibility for the jobholder to request a dialogue after the refusal of the report and lodging of the appeal.

Possibility for the jobholder to have a dialogue with the Countersigning Officer before appealing against the report and/or the promotion points.

To make possible an explanation of the performance level and promotion points received, before any appeal is lodged.

GIP 45, Art. 6

Simultaneous examination of appeals against the reports and promotion points in one single process.

The examination of the appeals against the reports and promotion points is made separately, at different times by two different processes.

The separation of the examination of the appeals allows a greater consistency in the work: the appeals against the points are only examined after the examination of the appeals against the reports (and therefore the level of performance) has been finalised.

GIP 43, Annex II

GIP 45,
Art. 6

The presidents of the bodies which prepare the opinions on the appeals (working groups, joint appraisal and promotion committees), are not entitled to vote.

The presidents of the bodies which prepare the opinions on the appeals (working groups, joint appraisal and promotion committees), are entitled to vote in the case of a tied vote.

The presidents' right to vote facilitates discussion and the issue of an opinion in cases where the bodies do not agree on the examination of an appeal.
