The 2017 Benefits Choice period is here. During the entire month of May, employees are able to make changes to their benefit elections. This year, employees are being asked to make these changes through the MyBenefits web portal rolled out by Central Management Services' benefits administrator, Morneau Shepell. Every employee will need a log-in and password in order to access the system. If you need or would like to make any changes to your health, dental or life insurance plans and/or re-enroll or enroll in an MCAP/DCAP account, please visit this site for information on how to register and manage and/or change your plans. Whether you are making changes or not, access to this system will allow you to view your elections and give you access to other information related to your benefits. This is an exciting improvement that provides you the ability to be in control and informed. You may also enroll in the Sick Leave Bank during the month of May. Please visit the EMPLOYEE tab in PAWS to enroll in this benefit. If you are needing assistance during Benefits Choice period, due to the number of people we are trying to assist, we would encourage calling for an appointment in order to avoid a long wait. We would also encourage sending an e-mail to for questions that can be addressed in this manner.

Civil service employee performance appraisals are required annually per Internal Governing Policy #39 and BOT Regulation II C-4. Performance appraisal forms for FY17 must be completed on all civil service employees by June 30, 2017. Directors and supervisors are accountable for their completion and submission of these evaluations to Human Resources. The evaluation form, along with a supervisor guidebook, is available here.

Appraisals should be an accurate and honest reflection of the employee's performance for FY17.

Remember to include the review period (which can be flexible, but in most cases is July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017) and comments/justification for ratings of "outstanding," "needs improvement" or "unacceptable." If you have questions, please contact Linda Holloway at 581-6047 or

Any employee who is terminating from the university for any reason should always contact the Human Resources Employment Office as soon as you know your last day of work. There is an exiting process that requires everyone to complete a Clearance Sheet before leaving campus. Faculty and administrative employees should provide a resignation/retirement letter to their chair or director and copy the appropriate VP. Civil Service employees need to call first with their last day worked and then come to the HR Employment Office to complete termination paperwork before receiving the Clearance Sheet. If you have any questions about the exiting process, please call the HR Employment Office at 581-3463.
