The training program, called GS 101, resides on the NSPS Web site and covers four broad topic areas: GS classification architecture and salary structure, changing positions within the GS, performance management, and career development. The program allows the user to print a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the course.
Elimination of NSPS was mandated by the fiscal 2010 National Defense Authorization Act signed by President Obama on Oct. 28, 2009. Under that law, all NSPS employees must be converted by Jan. 1, 2012 and are guaranteed the full annual GS pay adjustment over the transitional period.
