Summary In 2003, the Volcker Commission recommended that explicit pay-for-performance (PFP) systems be adopted more broadly throughout the federal government. In this occasional paper, the authors compare several proposals aimed at enhancing the role of such PFP schemes for federal civil servants, and examine the pros and cons of PFP schemes compared with seniority-based salary systems, as well as the proposals to change the General Schedule system.
Contents Pay for performance : social science perspective -- PFP : different forms -- The appraisal system : a source of concern -- PFP in the public sector : evidence -- PFP in the U.S. federal government -- Some departures from the GS -- Proposals to change the GS -- Burgeoning opposition to PFP.
