Commerce Scores 87 on PAAT

On March 5, 2008, the Department of Commerce submitted its expanded performance pilot PAAT (Performance Appraisal Assessment Tool) to OPM. The PAAT is designed to support the performance culture targets under Proud to Be. Using the PAAT, the Department evaluated its performance appraisal programs to ensure that we had developed a results-oriented performance culture, which is critical to successfully achieving organizational goals and objectives. The PAAT is comprised of various aspects of an appraisal system and responses to the Human Capital Survey. A passing score is 80. The Department received a score of 87. OPM noted we did a “Great Job!!!” on our PAAT submission.
