Hello again.

With all the talk of several agencies possibly being subject to buyouts or earlyouts I was wondering if you have seen any other incentives offered to employees to leave or retire from Federal service? Are we stuck with the negotiated agreement that OPM and the union signed, or can we ask for small sweeteners,- such as an adjusted comp date or rounding up of our high three? I bring this up because I believe there's a lot of misinformation out there right now. Thanks.
