Abstract : This briefing report responds to one of your requests for information on the personnel management demonstration project at the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). As discussed with your office during a July 10, 1992, briefing, we compared the personnel management authorities available under the demonstration project with those available to NIST under other federal personnel laws, regulations, and provisions. We made our comparison with specific regard to the recent enactment of the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act of 1990 (FEPCA). FEPCA made a number of changes in the federal pay system, including a fixed formula for phasing in annual increases and locality- based pay adjustments to remedy disparities with nonfederal pay. We will respond in the future to your request for our views on the independent contractor's evaluations of the demonstration project.
