FCW Forum: What help is there for federal managers?

In the past month, a letter to the editor bashing the General Schedule pay scale has received more than two dozen comments. A common theme has emerged: The problem is not the current pay system, but that managers do not know how to apply it. Pay for performance may seem to be fairer, but in the event of a change, one reader wrote, "fair is going to be in the hands of the same people who've rewarded non-work for years!" (Click here to read the original letter and all the comments).

Forget about the GS system for a moment. What specific recommendations would you offer for improving workforce management in federal agencies?
