Here are a couple things I would like in place before we start communicating this to the organization, as we will need to make everyone aware that money is available since it hasn’t been since 2011.
• Using the program overview/guide please put together a flow chart or step by step guide on what action a supervisor needs to take to submit an award. Essentially, a one page job aid.
• Outline the communication strategy, with timeframes, for communicating this throughout OBIM.
• Draft communications to support. These need to include the process overview and a remainder that awards cannot be for achievements within the employee’s area of responsibility as outlined in their approved Performance Work Plan (PWP).
