Crying foul over SSA classifications

There's a nice article on Page 30 of your July 23 issue about the Social Security Administration developing IT talent ["A hands-on approach to developing talent"].

But are you also aware that area systems coordinators (the ones that maintain hardware and software for Social Security field offices) are being denied the GS-334/2210 classification?

And are you aware that this classification IS being given to central office and regional office staff members who are not directly involved in information technology?

Apparently, "don't forget who brung you to the dance" is a lesson that SSA administrators never learned.

DFAS leads in e-pay stubs

In The Circuit, dated July 9, you have an item titled "Goodbye, Paper Trail." In it, you state that the National Finance Center in New Orleans will be issuing pay stubs electronically.

Just to inform you, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service has been doing just that for over a year.
