Performance Management Program
The goal of the Performance Management Program at the UAEU is to encourage a performance driven
culture and open communication. Employees are encouraged to discuss issues, job performance, career
aspirations and training and development needs; and the appraiser is encouraged to provide objective,
constructive feedback on strengths and areas for development.
In the academic context the performance management process aims to ensure the development and
maintenance of high standards of teaching, assessment and research by academic staff. Performance
is evaluated against established Key Performance Indicators (KPI) through internal and external
monitoring.
Continuous Business Improvement
- Faculty Performance Evaluation System
The Provost Office and UITS worked together to develop an automated system for Faculty Performance
Evaluation. This is another step by UAEU towards creating a paper-less environment and it accepts
both Arabic and English submissions.
- Student Voting Application
UITS and Student Affairs worked together to implement an electronic student voting application
system which allows students to nominate students for the Student Council Committee.
- New eRecruitment System
UAEU has implemented a new online e-Recruitment solution which is fully integrated with the
University’s Enterprise Systems. The new in-house developed solution is projected to save the
University AED 2.2 million in both licenses and support fees over the next ten years.
- Archiving System
UITS created an application archiving solution for the Admissions and Registration Department to
archive student transcripts and other student related documents in electronic format, whilst indexing
them and storing them in the enterprise electronic document management system.
- SharePoint Portal
UITS replaced the existing portal with Microsoft SharePoint portal which provides lots more features
such as collaboration through in built surveys, lists, Blogs, Wiki, document libraries etc. As a result,
the departments and colleges will be able to create their own portal sites and take full control of the
contents.
- Data Center IPS Deployment
UITS has successfully deployed highly secure HP Tipping Point Intrusion Prevention Systems for
all data center traffic going in and out which will proactively save the UAEU community from any
vulnerabilities and threats to our systems.
