There are agencies and organizations within the Federal Government that are not covered by the performance appraisal provisions in the law and regulations. However, many of them have adopted these procedures or developed their own procedures to evaluate the performance of their employees. The previous regulations on reduction in force restricted the application of additional service credit based on performance to those ratings of record given under the provisions of the appraisal law and regulations. When employees moved between agencies and organizations that are and are not subject to the appraisal law and regulations, they lost credit for Federal performance. To help alleviate this problem, the regulations have been changed to give agencies the basic guidelines by which they can review the performance evaluations employees bring with them from other Federal organizations and determine whether they qualify as equivalent ratings of record that can then be used as the basis for assigning additional service credit in a reduction in force.
