Which ratings of record are used for crediting performance in a reduction in force?

Additional performance-based credit can be applied only to ratings of record put on record (i.e., given to the employee with all appropriate reviews and signatures and available to the office responsible for establishing retention registers). Many agencies establish a cut-off date after which no new ratings of record will be put on record for use in a specific reduction in force.
