Frequently Asked Questions Performance Management

If all the ratings of record being credited for a reduction in force in the competitive area are under a single rating pattern, does the agency still have the option to vary credit?

No, the agency may only vary credit if the competitive area includes employees with ratings of record being credited for this reduction in force that were received under more than one summary level pattern. If all ratings being credited were given under a single pattern, the agency must use the 12/16/20 system regardless of the pattern used.
