Abstract: Performance appraisal in the Maltese Public Service dates back to pre-independence (Warrington, 1993:26). Reports assessing the performance, qualities, abilities and promotional prospects of officers were made by heads of department and supervisors. These reports were initially considered confidential but, over time, the scheme became an open appraisal. Employees were asked to endorse their performance rating report and if they disagreed to its contents, were entitled to appeal to a Reviewing Panel. "Open appraisal in a small society and the link between performance appraisal and judgements on promotability are cited as reasons why the system gradually fell into disuse" (ibid.:27).
