Frequently Asked Questions Performance Management

What should an agency do with any opportunity period or performance improvement plan (PIP) that is in progress when a program is changed?

If neither the performance standards nor the retention level communicated to the employee at the start of the PIP have changed, the agency should be able to proceed with the opportunity period or PIP. However, a substantive change in standards or the retention level would require that the current PIP end.
