NSPS transition office exceeding goals

2012 deadline likely to be met

The Department of Defense is ahead of schedule in transitioning most National Security Personnel System employees back to older pay systems. To date, nearly 172,000 of the 226,000 previously NSPS-managed workers have been reassigned to the General Schedule and other traditional pay systems, according to the NSPS Transition Team.

About 75 percent of the formerly NSPS employees have transitioned to GS, the team reports.  

DOD has a January 2012 deadline, imposed by Congress in 2009, by which time management must dismantle the NSPS system and place all those under it back into existing pay systems.

Transition Chief John H. James announced last April that most NSPS employees should be processed out by the close of FY 2010. At the time, a mere 7,000 employees had been moved out. Now, about 6 months later, more than 70,000 are back in older systems.

“[It] is likely that the full transition deadline of January 1, 2012, will be met with ease,” the National Federation of Federal Employees said in a statement Oct. 29. “This continued progress proves that the office has kept its promise to put an end to the anti-worker, anti-union personnel system once and for all.”
