FIGURE 2. CCAS COMPENSATION CATEGORIES
The position of those points relative to the upper and lower rails of the NPR gives a relative measure of the compensation (salary) versus contribution (OCS). Employees fall into one of three categories: inappropriately compensated - above the rails (A), appropriately compensated (C), or inappropriately compensated - below the rails (B). Depending on the category into which each employee falls, he/she is eligible for up to three forms of additional compensation. The pay pool panel has the option of awarding the employee up to the full General Schedule pay increase (as authorized by Congress and the President), a contribution rating increase (an increase in base salary), and/or a contribution award (a lump-sum payment that does not affect base salary). Employees on retained rate in the demonstration plan will receive pay adjustments in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 5363 and 5 CFR Part 536. An employee receiving a retained rate is not eligible for a contribution rating increase, since such increases are limited by the maximum salary rate for the employee’s broadband level. An outline of compensation eligibility by contribution category is given in Table 6.
