VII. Pay-for-Performance (PFP) Evaluation System

A. Overview

The purpose of the PFP evaluation system is to provide an equitable method for appraising and compensating covered employees. It is essential for the development of a highly productive workforce and to provide management, at the lowest practical level, the authority, control, and flexibility needed to accomplish the mission and meet organizational goals, including the requirements of the organizationís strategic plan. PFP allows for more employee involvement in the evaluation process, increases communication between supervisor and employee, promotes a clear accountability of contribution by each employee, facilitates employee progression by linking individual employee performance to mission accomplishment, and provides an understandable basis for salary and structural changes.
