Online Performance Evaluation System Information
Welcome to the Online Performance Evaluation System (OPES)
This site provides managers AND employees with consistent, objective methods for evaluating performance across the institution in support of the UAMS mission to improve the health, health care, and well-being of Arkansans and of others in the region, nation and the world.
All programs (clinical and non-clinical) are currently using the mandatory system to evaluate all non-faculty positions. It is not necessary to complete an evaluation on temporary, concurrent, and contract employees. At this time, faculty evaluations will continue using the current method, though faculty members who supervise non-faculty positions will use this system to evaluate their employees.
This system promotes two-way communication, fosters positive change and increases momentum toward achieving individual and organizational goals.
Supervisors must conduct employee evaluations using the online system. OPES provides a method for measuring job performance, identifying strengths and areas for improvement, coaching and development, and recognizing achievements. This system ensures job descriptions and performance are consistent with the UAMS core values.

Every regular full- and part-time employee must have an evaluation for the fiscal year of 2013; the fiscal year is July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013. If a paper evaluation was completed earlier this fiscal year, the score must be entered into SAP and the evaluation sent to Human Resources. Evaluations not completed on paper should be completed in the online performance evaluation system. Managers/substitutes must now send employees notification to complete their self-evaluation by opening the document and selecting Employee Notification of Self Evaluation for evaluations with a review period end date of June, 2013.
