    What if the modal rating for one year is based on an agencywide calculation, but a later calculation is made using a single competitive area?

    The agency will have to determine the modal rating based on the rating of record information it has available. If ratings of record are aggregated only at the agency level, that is what the agency will have to use. It might be possible for them to adapt their systems to do smaller aggregations. The Office of Personnel Management recommends that the modal rating which is based on the most recent ratings of record, be tabulated for the specific competitive area undergoing a reduction in force whenever possible, and that larger aggregations of agency population be used only when the rating of record information is not available for the specific competitive area itself.
