    Is higher-level review required for ratings of record above Level 1?

    Higher-level review of ratings of record above Level 1 is not a Governmentwide requirement. However, many agencies may decide that higher-level review is a good practice and provides a measure of fairness. In establishing how ratings of record will be derived, agencies must ensure that equity or fairness issues are addressed so that the results of the process are credible and accepted. Here again, employee involvement in developing program procedures can help promote such acceptance.
