OSA - Performance Management


I'm in the process of trying to configure performance appraisals in ECC 6.0 that will be used with the BSP pages in ESS/MSS eventually. I have a couple questions below that I cannot figure out through testing and have been unable to find any helpful documentation on a good process. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

1 - As part of the current process, the managers fill out the appraisals, review with the employee, and then they both sign-off. After this, the appraisal then goes to the next level of management for review prior to HR. Is there a way to allow only the manager to enter an appraisal, but allow the appraisee and higher-level manager to then both approve it?

2- So far the only option I've seen is to try and set it up as a part-appraisal process where the employee and manager are the part-appraisals, and then the higher-level manager becomes the final appraisal to show their sign-off. After that I believe we can have HR approve the appraisals in phap_admin_pa. If part-appraisals is the only way to achieve this sign-off, is there a way to copy the values entered by the manager in the part appraisal column over to the final appraisal column that would belong to the higher-level manager? As you can expect executives shouldn't have to re-complete the same questions, but instead just approve the review given by the manager. We can't allow the executives to just sign-off without valid entries in the final appraisal column either because as I understand it that is where the weighting and final calculations are determined from, which we need.

I thought maybe the further participant part would provide an option, but I haven't seen any documentation on how to make that work and so far my testing of that has yet to produce any results.
