The guidelines in the annual appraisal forms for civil servants are sufficient to help appraisers give objective assessment, the Public Service Department corporate and communication head, Hasniah Rashid, said yesterday.
It is up to the appraisers to evaluate their achievements.
Negri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan has cast doubts on the state’s civil service annual appraisal exercise, noting that some employees had obtained almost perfect scores.
He said while he was proud of the high achievers, the appraisal should be done in such a manner that no one could question the results.
Hasniah said civil servants, from the support group up to the highest level of management, were being evaluated using the same form.
"The bulk of the marks for the management and professional level is made up of their leadership qualities, like whether they can lead the department well," she said.
