    Can the number of years of additional service credit be awarded differently for the same reduction in force in different competitive areas?

    Yes. Each competitive area must be looked at individually to analyze what the situation is regarding the ratings of record being credited. For example, an agency needs to determine whether a mix of rating patterns exists, what the combination of rating patterns used looks like, and the relative numbers of employees rated under each pattern. Only then can the agency make an appropriate determination of how to assign years of additional service credit, based on the specific situation found.
