this system in the forest sector. In this context, this study has been
carried out at twenty-three Forest District Directorates, which are
located in Denizli,
Regional Forest Directorates that take part in the Aegean region of
Turkey. Firstly, the performance criterion that has been developed
occurred from fifty-two criteria in five different groups that can be

evaluation along with the 9-degree likert scale should be used. In this
way, ideal criteria set has been reached that will be used in evaluation
of technique personnel in Directorate of Forest District. However, the
group that has been considered important by forest engineers is the
