Staffing to align with your agency's mission
Human Resources and Security Specialists should use this tool to determine the correct investigation level for any covered position within the U.S. Federal Government.
Position classification standards encourage uniformity and equity in the classification of positions by providing a common reference across organizations, locations, and agencies. Classification standards may cover one or many occupations. They usually include a description of the work performed; official titles; and criteria for determining grades.
Classification flysheets describe the work, but refer the user to other standards or guides for grading guidance. Some broad standards are issued as "functional guides" and provide criteria for determining the grade level of work in multiple occupations.
Position classification standards and guidance covering most Federal positions are accessible on the internet at: http://www.opm.gov/fedclass/index.asp for white collar positions, and http://www.opm.gov/fedclass/html/fwsdocs.asp for trades, craft, and labor positions.
