    Can an agency restrict the application of a rating of record that was prepared solely to reflect current performance for the denial of a within-grade increase?

    No. When a within-grade increase determination is not consistent with an employee's most recent rating of record (i.e., current performance is not accurately reflected by the rating of record prepared at the end of the most recently completed appraisal period), regulation requires the preparation of a more current rating of record. However, there is no provision for the agency to limit the application of the newer rating of record to the within-grade increase determination only.
