Frequently Asked Questions Senior Executive Service

The minimum weight for the “Results Driven” performance element under the basic system description is different from the 60% results-focused requirement OPM had in past years. What does this mean?

This system aims to balance the results-focused performance element, which remains a critical part of a well-rounded performance appraisal plan, with the other leadership responsibilities of Federal executives.  Agencies now have the flexibility to more fully reflect key priorities for their own executives within the basic SES performance appraisal system description and performance plan template by carefully selecting the applicable weights for each performance element.
