If modifications need to be made to an existing performance plan, a plan can be re-opened by the Supervisor and resubmitted to the employee to acknowledge.

NOTE: 120 days must pass from the date the employee acknowledges the updated plan before they can be rated against it. Please refer to the “Who can participate in end of year performance reviews?” section for more information.
