Frequently Asked Questions Performance Management

When must a summary level be assigned?

When the rating of record is completed at the end of the appraisal period, a summary level must be assigned.  A summary level can be determined at any time agencies deem appropriate and specify in their appraisal programs (e.g., performance rating, progress review).  However, the ways in which summary levels are applied (e.g., granting within-grade increases and additional service credit in a reduction in force) are always in the context of the rating of record.
