    What is a modal rating and are agencies required to notify the Office of Personnel Management of their modal rating and/or the basis used to determine this rating?

    The modal rating is the summary level within a single pattern given most often as the latest rating of record to the employees in a specified group that is no smaller than the competitive area and no larger than the agency undergoing a reduction in force. It is important that the employees undergoing a reduction in force understand the basis used to determine the modal rating, but there is no requirement to notify the Office of Personnel Management of this information.
