Concurrently, at the Faculty level, there is a table describing the job position for each staff in charge of specific jobs. 02 months before ending the contract, the candidate writes a SAR on the performance results and proposes a plan for the task implementation for the next contract period. The FPS then holds a meeting to review, evaluate and consider if the individuals are qualified to meet the job requirements at the unit and decides to continue signing a new contract with the staff

            During the implementation of the Labor Contract, in June, at the end of the academic year, individuals must make a self-assessment of performance of academic year tasks and determine the plan for the next AY. Based on the contract signed with the University, on the faculty assignment description, the individual evaluation will be reviewed by all staff.

However, difficulties in facilities such as learning materials, self-study rooms make it harder to serve the students.
