The Department of Defense has approved plans for the National
Security Personnel System, calling for “aggressive, but
event-driven schedules,” according to Secretary of the Navy
Gordon R. England, the American Forces Press Service has
It said the plan calls for submitting a labor-relations
draft regulation to the Federal Register by November, and
was approved following several weeks of review by six teams
of around 25 people representing various agencies within
DoD, and representatives from the Office of Personnel
Management and Office of Management and Budget.
“We’ll go through this in stages and phases,” said England.
“We’ll get feedback, and we’ll keep improving the program
as we proceed…We won’t rush it.”
Many of the other personnel system changes, such as
revised job classification and pay for performance rules,
are to be phased in starting with a pilot group in mid-2005.
