Office Memorandum

Subject: Online generation and recording of Annual Performance Assessment Report (APAR) on SPARROW (Smart Performance Appraisal Report Recording Online Window) for all Organised Group 'A' Services - Extension of timelines for completion of APAR for the year 2017-18.

The undersigned is directed to invite a reference to this Department O.M. of even number dated 16th April, 2018 on the above subject.

2. As some of the Cadre Controlling Authorities of Organised Group 'A' Services are facing practical difficulties in getting the self-appraisal of the officers under their cadre on SPARROW web portal due to technical problems, it has been decided that the target dates prescribed in this Department O.M. No.21011/1/2005-Estt.(A) (P(II) dated 23rd July, 2009 be further relaxed as one time measure only for online generation, filling up of self-appraisal, reporting, reviewing and acceptance of APAR for the year 2017-18 through SPARROW web portal. The revised target dates for recording of APAH online for the year 2017-18 is enclosed as Annexure. This relaxation is subject to the condition that no remarks shall be recorded in the APAR for the year 2017-18 after 31.12.2018. Where the reporting, reviewing and accepting authority fail to record their comments within the time frame, the officer may be assessed on the basis of the overall record and self-assessment for the year, if he has submitted his self-assessment within the stipulated time.

3. This has the approval of Secretary, DoPT.
