    For all you experts out there, I will be going from GS to NSPS in just under a month or so. How bad am I going to get hosed in the switch?

    The most decisive factor is the Pay pool. They can and often do overide your supervisor's and HLR's recommendation. Keep in mind that your supervisor is only recommending a rating and the people in the pay pool decide what you actually get. Talk about a messed up system. A group of people deciding other people's salary based on their subjective interpretation of the guidelines and what they read from you and your supervisor's assessments. Doesn't anyone else see this as wrong?

    You say above that: "The most decisive factor in your salary increase will be your NSPS self-assessments, which must be completed by September 30th, 2008."

    My understanding is that the paypool does not even get to see your self assessment unless they specifically ask for it and there is no requirement that you even do a self assessment. It is the supervisor's assessment that counts and is what the paypool reviews.

    It is in your best interest to do a self assessment to help your supervisor write a good assessment of you to support their recommendation to the paypool.

    No system will eliminate all the inequities. This one works okay and tries to reward performance but since supervisors sit on the pay pools, it comes down to people fighting for their guys/gals to get what they deserve. In the end, our only voice of discontent with the pay out decision is to find a new job...same as any other company really.

    The pay band is suck because you don't get more money unless you apply a job on the different field .

    There are checks and balances, but I won't deny your assumption. It's up to us, the supervisors, to see that the system works.

    Who determines "high-performing"? The government bureaucratic supervisors???
    Pay banding opens the door for gov't supervisor bias even more so than the GS system.

    Absolutly, and the base doesn't not include the local market supplement.

    Scooby, you are absolutely right. What I tried to do in this article was indicate what the pay band ranges were for each Career Group - this only really helps to determine base salary. With a bonus-heavy system such as NSPS, it only goes so far. Nonetheless, it's interesting to note.

    The salary increase and pay out depend on the rating and amount of shares received, plus the percentage value of each share based on the total of the pay pool. Dang, my head hurts now!
