I suggest you give your boss a written review of your own performance,
emphasizing what you believe you shold have accomplished compared to what
you did accomplish. Include, also, suggestions for what you might do to
improve your contribution to your bosses goals and objectives, and any
improvements that could be made to your working relationships and work
processes. This need not be a lengthy piece, just a basis for thought and

When I reviewed people who reported to me, such inputs were always very helpful.

Yes, after you and your boss have discussed your performance and plans for
the next review period. Assuming this review is positive, you could suggest
that your value has increased, therfore you deserve a salary increase that
is comensurate with your bosses financial sutuation. You probably won't be
talking about specific numbers, but about what might influence the size of
those numbers.
