OFFICE MEMORANDUM
 

Subject: Introduction of ‘SPARROW’ for CSS/CSSS officers.

The undersigned is directed to refer to Office Memorandum No.
22/10/2015-CS-l (APAR) dated 18th January, 2017 regarding
introduction of on-line recording system of APARs for US level officers for
CSS and equivalent levels in CSSS. The Ministries/Departments were
requested to take necessary action for creation and generation of APARs
before 20th March, 2017 so that the officer concerned are able
to submit their self-appraisal from 1st April, 2017. On assessment of
progress made for SPARROW for CSS/CSSS, it is observed that in many
Ministries/Departments the process of creation of data and generation of
APARs is not yet completed. This might be due to various factors such as
non-availability of basic data of officers, non-creation of data at the end
of the NIC, problems in setting up work flows of officers, problems in data
transfer at various levels, problems in e-signing etc. 
2. The matter has been considered in this Department and it has been
decided to extend datelines for submission of APAR on ‘SPARROW’- CSS/CSSS
as per Annexure to this OM. 
3. Ministries/Departments are requested to take necessary action towards
generation of APARs as per the revised time-lines. It is clarified that it
will not be possible to extend these time-lines further. The
Ministries/Departments are also advised to ensure following actions at the
level of EMD (Employee Master Data Manager) for smooth functioning of
‘SPARROW’ system :- 
i) Employee data of all the officers in the Ministry/Department should be
kept updated in PIMS.

ii) The officers leaving the organizations/new joinees should be taken on
roll or transferred to other Departments as and when such events occur.
iii) All the primary details of the officers such as Aadhar no., mobile
no., e-mail i.d.
should be exactly the same as shown in the records. 
4. All the Ministries/Departments are also requested to intimate progress
made in implementation of ‘SPARROW’ in their Departments in the following
format:-
