OFFICE MEMORANDUM 

Subject: Online generation and recording of Annual Performance
Assessment Report (APAR) on SPARROW (Smart Performance Appraisal Report
Recoding Window) for all Organised Group ‘A’ services – Extension of
timelines for completion of APAR for the year 2016-17. 
 
As all the Cadre Controlling Authorities of Organised Group ‘A’ Services
are aware that it has been decided to implement online generation and
recording of Annual Performance Assessment Report (APAR) of officers under
their cadre from the reporting year 2016-17, through SPARROW platform. 
2. Some of the Cadre Controlling Authorities have intimated practical
difficulties in switching over from manual to online mode of recording of
APARs. In view of this, the cadre authorities have expressed apprehensions
that target dates prescribed in DoPT O.M.No.21011/02/2009-Estt.(A) dated
23rd July, 2009 may not be met and have requested for extension of
timelines. 
3. The matter has been examined in this Department and it has been decided
that the target dates prescribed in OM dated 23rd July, 2009 be relaxed as
one time measure only for online generation, filling up self-appraisal,
reporting, reviewing and acceptance of APAR for the year 2016-17 through
SPARROW portal. The revised target dates for recording of APAR online for
the year 2016-17 is enclosed as Annexure. This relaxation is subject to the
condition that no remarks shall be recorded in the APAR for the year
2016-17 after 31.12.2017. Where the reporting, reviewing and the accepting
authority fail to record their comments within the time frame, the officer
may be assessed on the basis of the overall record and self-assessment for
the year, if he has submitted his self-assessment within stipulated time. 
4. This has the approval of Secretary, DoPT.
