Frequently Asked Questions Performance Management

If an agency is running reductions in force in two separate competitive areas and each area has ratings given under a different pattern, does this constitute a mix of patterns under the reduction in force regulations?

No, there is no comparison across competitive areas to determine if a mix of patterns exists. Only if there is a mix of patterns within a single competitive area can an agency vary credit.
