Summary of Changes/Comments
March 01, 2021 - The Performance Management and Development policy was amended to include reference to the Probation upon Appointment policy which will apply to initial appointments of more than one year.

December 22, 2020 - The Performance Management and Development policy is now available in Spanish. To access the document, click on the Spanish language tab.

March 27, 2020 - The Performance Management and Development policy and procedures have been updated with a view to:

- Further strengthening accountability for performance and performance management;

- Enhancing linkages between performance and other human resources management decisions; and

- Further streamlining performance management processes and procedures.

The revision of the policy on PMD is part of a more comprehensive effort to improve the quality of talent management in UNDP and, as such, is closely linked to a series of other initiatives related to performance management (e.g. a new programme on reward and recognition), career management (e.g. talent interviews), succession (e.g. staff selection for key roles) and learning and development.

February 01, 2017 - The former Rebuttal policy was retired and is now incorporated into the Performance Management policy. It also replaces the PMD Guidance Note of 2013.
