    Frequently Asked Questions::Who has the authority to assign a rating of record to a Federal employee?

    Who has the authority to assign a rating of record to a Federal employee?

    Agency appraisal programs will identify who prepares the rating of record and whose signature may appear on official documentation. Generally, an individual who is in the best position to assess the employee's performance, has the necessary information, and has the authority to rate employees should complete the rating of record. Therefore, it may be that ratings of record are prepared by the first-line supervisors, managers, team leaders, or other appropriate employees. Governmentwide performance management regulations do not specially designate who has the authority to assign a rating of record.
