During the development of the annual performance plan the employee and CED/DED develop a professional development plan and document this plan in XPM. Professional development may be related to an area for growth and development or geared toward improving an area “in need of improvement” from a previous evaluation.

When identifying professional development:

  • Each employee needs at least one diversity, equity, and inclusion and one other professional development activity listed in his/her annual plan.
  • Completing a graduate course once every 5 years is required until achieving the rank of Full Agent.
  • Professional development may include: professional certifications, technical skills training, program area training, technology training, interpersonal skills training, foreign language courses, graduate courses, leadership and management training, mentoring programs, research projects, etc.

Agents should update their Personal Development Record in OSS at least annually with any professional development not already reported in XLMS.
