DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF STAFF APPRAISAL SYSTEM FOR THE NIGERIA MILITARY
In this research work, it was ascertained that performance appraisal/assessment system was in place. Promotion of civil servants is pegged on the results of the appraisal/assessment form which is finalized by the supervisors. It is worth noting that PAS has not effectively been disseminated to the employees of the lower cadre or support staff, yet this is the category of officers who discharge essential service tasks. Inability of these officers to relate their daily activities to the strategic objectives of the ministries render performance inconsequential. The higher and middle cadre of employees remained indecisive on the fact that performance appraisal/assessment forms do not capture the actual performance; measured items not related to performance; does not give room for explanation about performance. It was thus concluded that the lower cadre or support staff are not involve in the filing of the appraisal forms yet this category carry out essential tasks.
