The electronic Performance Development Program (ePDP) is a communication program for staff members and supervisors to help them understand their roles, continue to learn, and participate in the improvement of Grand Valley State University. The program is completed annually via a multi-stage electronic process that includes an automatic flow of forms between staff and supervisor. The program starts with an Annual Planning document and is completed with a Final Assessment that reflects performance over the past year. For Administrative/Professional Staff, evaluations are also a basis for merit increases in salary.
