Accurate and defensible competitive levels are essential before taking reduction-in-force actions. We can help you to develop a competitive level code system that includes an unambiguous definition of each level and written guidance for using and updating the system. Where it is necessary to establish separate competitive levels for positions in the same occupational series and grade, our definitions make a clear and compelling distinction among the competitive levels based on substantial differences in the qualifications required for the work. Let us analyze your positions to guide you through the determination of competitive levels and the assignment of competitive level codes.
