The primary objective of this study is to implement a database system for staff performance evaluation for Geecoms Integrated Services Ltd. The methodology adopted in the design of this work is rapid application development (RAD) model, which is an incremental software process model that emphasis a short development cycle of 60-90 days. Its approach to software development put less emphasis on planning and more emphasis on process. ASP.Net technology was used in combination with VB.Net programming language for the frontend design. Moreover, every robust system requires a backend for proper storage and maintenance of records. In this system, Microsoft Access database was used for the backend design. MS Access was chosen in order to avoid compatibility issues of systems not being able to meet system requirements. In the database design, tables where created to hold related records as well as implementation of table normalization. Primary key was used to create table relation in the database to make data manipulation as easy as possible. Judging from the efficiency and effectiveness of the system accomplished in this work; is therefore recommended organization managers should adopt this technology as it will ensure successful performance evaluation and bring great change in the system
