    Can agencies not covered by part 430 of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, pay performance awards?

    Yes. Under the authority of section 4505a of title 5, United States Code agencies may pay performance-based cash awards to GS only. Agencies that are not covered by the provisions of 5 CFR 430 can use their official agency performance rating as the justification for the award as long as the employee's most recent performance rating was at the fully successful level or higher (or the equivalent).
