Acquisition Demonstration Project
2021 Conversion Calculator

This calculator is intended to help you understand the Acqdemo buy-in process, and provides your demo career path, broadband, and an estimated within-grade increase (WGI) buy-in. It is not intended to determine your official conversion information. Your official conversion information, including your actual WGI buy-in amount, will be communicated to you at the time of your conversion, through receipt of an SF-50, Notification of Personnel Action. Employees will convert into Acqdemo with no loss in pay. Employees below step 10 of their grade who are performing at the fully successful level and are not on retained pay will receive a pay increase.

To use the calculator, first complete steps 1 through 4 in Part 1 to determine your AcqDemo career path and broadband. Next, complete steps 5 through 9 in Part 2 to determine your estimated within-grade increase (WGI) buy-in. If you are unsure about your date of last increase, grade, step or pay, please check your personal records or contact your HR office.
