Frequently Asked Questions Performance Management

Is the pattern of summary levels an appraisal program uses negotiable?

No. The number of summary levels is an exercise of management rights and not subject to collective bargaining. However, where the agency system permits some flexibility in deciding about a program's pattern of summary levels, employee involvement could play an important role in program acceptance.
