Purpose The purpose of this notice is to amend the Federal Register, Department of Defense, Science and Technology Reinvention Laboratory Personnel Management Demonstration Project, Department of the Army, Army Research, Development and Engineering Command, Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC), December 29, 2009 (74 FR 68936–68966) as follows: 1. Under, Part III. Personnel Changes, D. Hiring Authority, 1. Qualifications, on page 68950, in the third column, replace first paragraph as follows: ‘‘The qualifications required for placement into a position in a pay band within an occupational family will be determined using the OPM Operating Manual for Qualification Standards for GS Positions. Since the pay bands are anchored to GS grade levels, the minimum qualification requirements will be no lower than the requirements corresponding to the lowest GS grade level incorporated into that pay band. Specific experience and/or education required will be determined based on whether a position to be filled is at the lower, middle, or higher end of the pay band. For example, for a position in the E&S occupational family, Pay Band II individuals must meet the basic requirements for a GS–5 as specified in the OPM Qualification Standard for Professional and Scientific Positions. However, in situations where management determines the position VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:40 May 30, 2013 Jkt 229001 must be filled at the middle or higher end of the band, individuals will be required to meet specific experience and/or educational requirements that exceed the minimum qualifications. This information will be clearly stated within the vacancy announcement.’’ 2. Under, Part III. Personnel Changes, F. Pay Setting, 7. Supervisory and Team Leader Pay Adjustments, on page 68954, in the second column, in the last paragraph, the first, second and third sentences are replaced as follows: ‘‘The supervisory/team leader pay adjustment will be reviewed annually and may be increased or decreased by a portion or by the entire amount of the supervisory/ team leader pay adjustment based upon the employee’s performance appraisal score for the performance element, Team Project Leadership or Supervision/EEO and/or criteria outlined above. If the entire portion of the supervisory/team leader pay adjustment is to be decreased, the initial dollar amount of the supervisory/team leader pay adjustment will be removed. A decrease to the supervisory/team leader pay adjustment as a result of the annual review or when an employee voluntarily leaves a position is not an adverse action and is not subject to appeal.’’ 3. Under Part V. Conversion, on page 68957, in the third column, A. Conversion to the Demonstration Project, remove third paragraph: ‘‘Employees who enter the demonstration project later by lateral transfer, reassignment or realignment will be subject to the same pay conversion rules. If conversion into the demonstration project is accompanied by a geographic move, the employee’s GS pay entitlements in the new geographic areas must be determined before performing the pay conversion.’’ 4. Under, Part IX. Required Waivers to Law and Regulation, on page 68961, A. Waivers to Title 5, U.S.C., chapter 75, section 7512(4), in the third column, Adverse actions. Add the following to the last sentence continued on page 68962, first column: ‘‘Or (3) decreases in the amount of a supervisory or team leader pay adjustment during the annual review process.’’ B. Employee Notification Demonstration project policies and procedures are posted on the internal network. ECBC employees receiving a supervisory or team leader pay adjustment will sign a statement of understanding acknowledging that adverse action provisions do not apply to decreases in the amount of a supervisory or team leader pay adjustment based on the annual review.
