I’m currently in a NH03 position under ACQ Demo. I applied for a GS13 Position at another agency. My NH03 pay is equivalent to a GS 12 Step 4. If I get the job would I be entitled to the GS 13, Step 1 or something else? I’ve read the conversion posts but am still unsure. In my office everyone has a differing opinion...mostly yes, Step 1 but some others think Step 4. Help!

Steps for conversion are typically:
Convert pay band salary to GS grades/step equal to, but not less than your current pay (this means if you make $1 more than a step, say step 4, then you are taken to the next highest step in that grade),
After converting current pay to GS, then the 2 step promotion rules apply. If you come out of the ACQ demo as a GS12 step 4, then you get GS13 step 1. But if you come out at GS12 step 5, then you'd promote to GS13 step 2.

HR gurus...am I missing anything?

If he was selected from a DE certificate, the action is not processed as a promotion, so no 2 step rule. Rather, they can set the pay at step 1 or authorize Highest Previous Rate. For conversion out of acqdemo as an NH-03, if your salary meets/exceeds the salary for a GS-13 step 4 then your grade on conversion out of the demo will be 13, else it will be GS-12 and if your salary falls between 2 steps you will get the benefit of the higher step.

But if it is not a DE cert, is what I posted the manner the OP would have the pay set? (ie Convert out to GS, then 2 step rule to the next grade?)
