|Do you jump from one Federal Register Notice referencing AcqDemo to another to make sure you have the latest guidance? We’ve made your search a little easier. We’ve taken the January 9, 1999 Federal Register Notice that published the project plan and added language from subsequent Federal Register Notices that amended the original plan.
Here is a list of the four Federal Register Notices that amended the demonstration project:
May 21, 2001: (1) Corrects discrepancies in the list of occupational series included in the project and (2) authorizes managers to offer a buy-in to Federal employees entering the project after initial implementation.
April 24, 2002: (1) Makes employees in the top broadband level of their career path eligible to receive a “very high” overall contribution score and (2) reduces the minimum rating period under CCAS to 90 consecutive calendar days.
July 01, 2002: (1) Lists all organizations that are eligible to participate in the project and (2) makes the resulting adjustments to the table that describes the project’s workforce demographics and union representation.
October 04, 2006: (1) Provides authorization for an out-of-cycle payout under CCAS prior to transition to NSPS and (2) addresses procedures for conversion of employees from this demonstration project to NSPS.
This document is intended to serve as a quick reference tool to view changes brought about by the amendments. Change sections are highlighted in red. You will see strikethroughs for old language and the italicized replacement text.

Note: The October 16, 2002 Federal Register Notice has a section detailing the intent to amend the project by changing the method for determining and translating retention service credit. A subsequent Federal Register Notice implementing the proposed amendment was never published due to the transition of the majority of employees to the National Security Personnel System (NSPS). Therefore, no mention of this Notice is found in the reference document described in this announcement.
