GovExec: OPM to Guide Agencies on SES Bonus Spending Cap Increase

US office of personnel managementThe Office of Personnel Management will issue additional guidance strategies on rewards for Senior Executive Service and senior-level career position holders to help agencies manage the spending cap increase on bonuses in October, GovExec reported Thursday.

Kellie Lunney writes the aggregate spending cap on agency performance awards will increase from 4.8 percent to 7.5 percent in fiscal 2017 as part of an executive order from President Barack Obama in December that works to streamline the SES hiring and make pay adjustments to help recruit and retain leaders.

The report said adjustments on senior executive salary should be performance-based and considers the pay of an executive’s direct reports in the General Schedule.

Lunney added the executive order also calls for agencies to update the development, hiring and onboarding of senior executives through strategies such as a resume-based application process.
