NSPS - National Security Personnel System


NSPS is the Department of Defense's (DoD) flexible and responsive civilian management system that: (1) values performance and contribution, (2) encourages communication, (3) supports broader skill development, and (4) promotes excellence in the workplace

NSPS modernizes a 50-year-old civil service system, allowing DoD to better attract, recruit, retain, compensate, reward and manage employees. The system focuses on people, performance, and employment decisions that are cost-effective and best for business practice.

Please file a claim with OPM if you have not already done so. http://www.opm.gov/payclaims/
Also, please check my posting under NSPS to GS.

To all of those who were placed on special salary rate pay tables and had their basic pay reduced when you transitioned from NSPS to GS please help fix the problem by doing the following (these steps are for those who reassigned under NSPS and never had a special salary rate added to basic pay prior to the transition to GS but subsequently had a portion removed and called SSR upon transition to GS):

  1. File a complaint with your agency if you have not done so, in writing.  A generic email for DOD CPMS is cpmsnote@cpms.osd.mil for starters if you cannot receive a written reply at your base level. I can provide more contacts if needed.
  2. After receiving a denial of claim you may file a claim with OPM using the steps in the paragraph below. The website is: http://www.opm.gov/payclaims/, but all claims need to be mailed in, and send it certified or registered otherwise it has been known to get lost in the mail.
  3. Another step is to pursue 10 USC 1586 if you are returning stateside and have your base apply the USC which basically states you should not lose pay for taking an overseas assignment.
It is my hope we can get this resolved without private legal action but more people need to submit claims to OPM to get this moving along. If only a few of us are complaining then it must not be a big problem, right? So, make your voice heard. File the complaints.

OPM Claim Process

Regulations pertaining to this function are found in CFR 178. Pertinent information in CFR 178 includes:

(a) Content of claims. A claim shall be submitted by the claimant in writing and must be signed by the claimant or by the claimant's representative. While no specific form is required, the request should describe the basis for the claim and state the amount sought. The claim should also include:

  1. The name, address, telephone number, and facsimile machine number, if available, of the claimant;
     
  2. The name, address, telephone number, and facsimile machine number, if available, of the agency employee who denied the claim;
     
  3. A copy of the denial of the claim, issued by the employing agency; and,
     
  4. Any other information, which the claimant believes OPM should consider
Good luck and start filing!

Engineer, see my pretty detailed reply on your other post.

Is this something I should keep fighting? Details on your main post on this issue.

Yes you should fight it as special pay was applied incorrectly. You have 6 years from the time of the error but file sooner rather than later.

Well MSPB had assigned a docket Nr to my NSPS suit, that NSPS wrongly resulted in a reduced agency retirement annuity. I followed the discovery order and requested some documents out of DoD they have until now refused to release. I also formally requested to depose the SECDEF and Director of OPM. MSPS ordered the agency work in good faith to resolve this, out of court. one of my conditions for that is, DoD formally issue Policy that corrects this problem for each and every Fed negatively impacted when DoD failed to follow the law ending NSPS and the CFR (530.322). I have also told the led console for DoD, they must admit willful violations and any settlement out of MSPB be un-sealed, a matter of public record and pay liquidated damages (2X). It only gets better from here. I will keep you posted.

GREGGORY J. PEARSON v. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Docket # DC-0752-13-0467-I-1. is now in full review in the Eastern Region of MSPB. That decision will either result in the case dismissed or a court date. DoD lawyer Steven J. Weiss, Esq., has never argued my case on merits, only that my case should have been filed against the Secretary of Army not Defense and that MSPB ruled in 2010 I had no case. Problem is in 2010 MSPB tossed everyone's cases, based on the definition of 'basic pay'. Then on 9 June 2010 OPM lied to congress on this same issue then two years later, both OPM and DoD CPMS (James Davey) refused to answer Senator Akaka in 2012 when I asked for a congress review. They waited him out, Akaka retired last Dec...That judge back in 2010 made it clear to both me and the agency that day, I would have a valid case the minute I retired based on incorrect Hi-3. I also have a sealed case I plan to open, going to cost me to do that... I'm really not in this any longer for the money. I want to see Chuck Grimes III and James Davey escorted off federal property for violating their oath of office- specifically failing to follow the law terminating NSPS. Anyone who ever received full, partial or a sealed settlement from any DoD agency or OPM concerning NSPS reconversion to GS. PLEASE tell me the story on private email.

anyone still in the NSPS reduced pay or grade fight, take note. my retirement case is at appeal. the Admin judge ordered OPM to render a final decision, in 120 days. I went to appeal because I didn't want a final case before the agency did anything. as I have researched stuff - look it up. MANY people have recently won back pay, one as recently a April 2014. Apparently some have broken the code. my goal is to break OPM and DoD. I am arguing they failed to follow the law terminating NSPS, lied to congress of that fact, then failed to apply CFR 530.322 and add special rate pay across the s4 career fields that got short changed. on the MSPB site just put in dates and NSPS for the search word. look at both precedence and non precedence cases...

Exactly what they want. They waited out congress, any of Congress that cared retired under something that NSPS didn't mess up. But, as recent as April 2014 a new case was WON against DoD. that case referenced a couple others that got this fixed in Navy & Army. The one that was just won, the courts allowed it 27 months LATE, because he waited for DoD to make a decision. That they never did make of course without being kicked to the floor last month by MSPB. I just hope as DoD and OPM point fingers at each other, Congress or the POTUS proper cuz he is so ticked off of ANOTHER VA, IRS, whatever, cuts the heads off both agencies.
