How to Prepare for a PEP
If the employee does not have an updated copy of their MS-22, contact the Department’s personnel office to get a copy of it. Read through the MS-22 prior to the beginning of cycle PEP meeting and determine if it accurately reflects duties. Ask the supervisor to change the MS-22, if it is not correct.
The employee should document outstanding work they have performed throughout the evaluation period. Be prepared to cite examples during the PEP.
