Launch of PEP Evaluation Period

Monday, July 18-Wednesday, August 31, 2022

Austin Community College (ACC) values quality service and the importance of a working environment that supports the continuous improvement of employees’ job performance.

All Classified, Professional-Technical, and Administrator employees must complete the annual Performance Excellence Program (PEP) annually. Our PEP evaluation period begins today, Monday, July 18, 2022, and lasts until Wednesday, August 31, 2022. We will be using the Workday tool to access and complete the evaluation process.

You will be able to access your PEP from the Workday inbox 


The PEP process will follow 4 simple steps for EVERY employee.

1st Step- Self-Evaluation (everyone must complete)

2nd Step- Manager Evaluation 

3rd Step- Employee and Manager will meet and discuss PEP

4th Step- Employee can comment on the evaluation and will sign off on the final version of PEP

  • Goal Setting & Comments - You will have the opportunity to set goals for FY23. These goals are to be discussed with your supervisor during your PEP meeting. Supervisors can provide commentary on the goals. 

  • Supervisor HOLD TO MEET - Supervisors will ”Submit” their completed version of the evaluation until they have scheduled and met with their employees. You will have to go back and click submit again after you have met with your employee(s). Once the second SUBMIT is clicked, the evaluation is routed to the employee(s) for their review and acknowledgment. 

  • Employee Acknowledgement - Your direct reports will complete the PEP process by signing off on their evaluation. The PEP is not complete until this step is completed. 

    • Open Information Sessions- Staff Professional Development and Evaluations (PDE) will be available weekly for open information sessions to address questions about the new PEP process in Workday. Please see the schedule below. 

  • Resources for “A Successful Evaluation”- PDE has curated LinkedIn training resources to help you and your employees have a successful evaluation. 

  • Exemptions-If your direct report is on FMLA, has been with your team for 90 days or less or you have been in an ACC supervisory or interim role for 90 days or less, you can be granted an exemption from the PEP evaluation cycle. To be considered for an exemption, please complete this form.
