Civil service employee performance appraisals were due June 30, 2017. These evaluations are required annually per Internal Governing Policy #39 and BOT Regulation II C-4. Performance appraisal forms for FY17 should have been completed and submitted by or before June 30, 2017 for all civil service employees. 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 http://www.eiu.edu/humanres/classification/performanceappraisal.php.

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."

We will begin contacting Supervisors to request the appraisal forms if they have not been submitted. If you have questions, please contact Linda Holloway at 581-6047 or lcholloway2@eiu.edu.

In July of each year, we are requested to post a public notice called the Consumer Confidence Report. It is a report concerning the quality of drinking water used on campus during the previous year (for the period of Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016), and is required by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996. One way to serve notice is posting on the Web.

There are two reports to view and/or print -- the EIU Consumer Confidence Report and the City of Charleston Consumer Report. Access to both reports can be found here. If you would like a copy of these reports, please go there to print.

We are emailing all building coordinators with the link, as well, to ensure that all buildings connected to the campus water distribution system have a paper copy of both reports available for the building occupants to review. You will not receive a paper copy in the mail. The notice will be posted for public viewing in the same manner that other announcements are posted within your building. Also, a copy will be made available to any occupants who may request one. Thank you for your cooperation.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Aaron Kemper, Plumbing Shop, 217-581-7212.
