If a notice of proposed action has been given to the employee, a change
to an appraisal program should have no effect on the action. Part 430
of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, contains a specific provision,
called the "savings provision," that safeguards administrative
procedures pending under a previously approved appraisal program, from
being disrupted by the implementation of new programs covered by these
regulations. The Office of Personnel Management's system approval
procedures require agency appraisal programs to have a similar provision
to safeguard pending administrative procedures when programs change. (See related
question for impact of a program change on an opportunity period.)
