MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION
||Guide to Classifying General Schedule (GS) Positions in the Civilian Intelligence
Personnel Management System (CIPMS) and Implementation of CIPMS Primary Grading Standard (PGS) for
- Reference. Draft AR 690-XX, CIPMS Policies and Procedures, as distributed by HQDA Letter 690-90--1, Subject: Implementation of the Civilian Intelligence Personnel Management System (CIPMS), dated 15 January 1990.
- On 17 May 1990, the CIPMS Advisory Group approved an immediate change to the PGS supervisory factors. Due to requirements of the DoD Appropriations Act of FY1989 (PL 101-65), the current Factor E for Size of Work Force Supervised was deleted. A new Factor E for Complexity of Work which credits the highest level of subordinate work supervised was approved.
Paragraph 2-5a of the above reference provides for the Department of the Army, Deputy Chief of Staff (DCS, G-2), in conjunction with the Director of Civilian Personnel, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel to approve direct application of the primary standard in grading positions. This memorandum approves direct use of the PGS, Part 3, for determining the grade level of supervisory duties in all CIPMS positions. Application will conform to the procedures established in the Guide for Classifying GS Positions (Enclosure 1) which includes the PGS as changed.
- At a minimum, the PGS, Part 3 will be applied to new or changed supervisory positions, and to resolve classification appeals.
- MACOMs and FOAs will choose either of the following implementation policies within their activities:
The first option allows for all positions within an occupation to be changed simultaneously and, possibly, a more staggered implementation period. The second option allows organizations a more complete view of their management structure; however, It would require some review of the classification as AOGs are implemented. (For example, Factor E would require a reevaluation.)
- Application in conjunction with Army Occupational Guides (AOGs) for the corresponding nonsupervisory work; or
- Application organizationally for all CIPMS supervisory/managerial positions within a 180-day period.
- The Intelligence Personnel Management Office (IPMO) will request a report on the implementation in December 1990. To this end, organizations will record actions taken as directed in Enclosure 2. Point of contact in IPMO is Carol Babcock, telephone (703) 285-5204 or AUTOVON 356-5204.
