This study aimed at asses the impact of OPRAS implementation on the performance of the employees in the Ministry of Home Affairs in Tanzania as a representative case. The specific objectives were to identify awareness of OPRAS in the Ministry of Home Affairs to determine the procedures used in implementing of OPRAS in the Ministry of Home Affairs and to examine the policy of implementation of OPRAS in the Ministry of Home Affairs. In the course of doing this study I started with theoretical review by defining OPRAS and other terms key elements. This study used cross-sectional and survey research designs. In data presentation, analysis and discussion of findings covers five parts namely facts about responds and four objectives of 56 respondents that were randomly and purposeful sampled. The data were collected through interview and structured questionnaires (The findings indicated that there was a lack of awareness among employees on open performance review and appraisal system). This was a result of inadequate staff involved in training and sensation. Failures of the appraisal system were due to financial constraints and lack of knowledge on the concept or process of open performance appraisal system by the management. This study recommended that the Government should train its employees on how OPRAS operates and impact on the performance. This should go hand in hand with ensuring that staff is equally involved in the appraisal process. Participatory approach on OPRAS should be enforced on all public Institution for better service delivery to the citizens.
