Abstract : OPM's(Office of Personnel Management) report concluded that the government's new performance appraisal and merit pay systems are functioning well, achieving a high degree of employee acceptance and should be expanded to cover the entire General Schedule work force. The data cited by OPM to support these conclusions are either outdated or not projectable to the universe of merit pay employees. The attitudinal surveys used by OPM to support its conclusions were made in 1979 and 1980 before merit pay was implemented in most agencies, and the actual experiences cited by OPM covered less than 3 percent of the merit pay population.
