National Security Personnel System For Civil Servants Business Rules In 2008, all NETC commands transistioned to a new Civilian Personnel Management system called NSPS which requires each employee to have quantifiable job objectives. It is a pay-for- performance program. Employees complete self-assessments, and are evaluated by their supervisors semi-annually. CSFE generates a strict set of business rules to ensure that the rating syetem is fair and the criteria are equally applied across the board. Employee ratings are governed by a local Sub Pay Pool at each activity, then adjudicated by Main Pay Pool members from across the domain. Sub Pay Pools Each command has a Sub Pay Pool that is responsible for ensuring that supervisors and employees meet the deadlines set out in the CSFE NSPS Business Rules. They review all supervisor assessments and employee self-evaluations to adjudicated marked differences in what the supervisor observes and records and what the employee reports. When necessary, they confer with supervisors to adjust recommendations for employee rating and compensation. Main Pay Pool They validate that the criteria are applied The Sub Pay Pools submit their evenly across Sub Pay Pool constituents. recommendations to the Main Pay Pool who then review all recommendations across the CSFE Domain to guarantee fair and equal evaluation by each site. Appeal Process Should an employee disagree with his/her rating, he/she has 10 calendar days to appeal the rating to the CSFE Pay Pool Manager who will make a decision. The ultimate authority for all appeals resides with the CSFE Performance Review Authority.

  22. 22. Command Ideology All CSFE Learning Sites are guided by the philosophy that education and training must be relevant to the Navy’s requirements in the field. We believe that by meeting the Navy’s needs we assist in providing that skilled manpower necessary to ensure the nation's military strength and readiness. The Learning Sites are dedicated not only to each individual's development and advancement in his/her chosen field, but also to the continued personal and professional growth of both faculty and students. Coupled with the process of producing trained, skilled personnel capable of performing their mission, we recognize the ultimate dignity and worth of each individual. We believe that there must be a total awareness and understanding in the area of human goals and personal values. Staff personnel and students are provided daily opportunities and given the guidance necessary to properly and effectively pursue success in technical fields and careers. We believe that individuals who have confidence in themselves and who are secure in their competencies can better serve their needs and the needs of the United States Navy, Army and Air Force. Educational Credits The American Council on Education (ACE) establishes college credit equivalencies for military training and experience. College credit recommendations are based upon the evaluation of formal courses and selected enlisted occupations evaluated by teams of educators who have experience in similar subject areas. Results of the evaluations are published in the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Forces which is distributed free of charge to all colleges and universities in the U.S. Actual credit awards will depend on the policies of the institutions.
