Does an “Outstanding” performance rating guarantee a quality step increase?

No
The excuse of, "I read it on FederalSoup..." won't work. Please do your due diligence.

LOL . Not even close. At my agency I haven’t even heard of someone getting a QSI in more than a decade. Cash awards and time off awards are common,

No. And a lack of a "outstanding" guarantees a QSI is not likely as well.

I've only ever had "outstanding" ratings as a civil servant. I've gotten 2 QSIs (DoD), and was put in for another (USCG) but it was overruled as my directorate was only allowed to have 1 QSI, and so they decided to not give any (got a decent bonus instead though considering it was from Uncle Sam!). All three times I was put in for QSIs, I had done things that impacted the whole agency in a positive way beyond my area of expertise. I will admit part of it is my habit of looking for ways to make my life easier by increasing efficiency in processes, and happen to find some things that had not been updated for decades, and helped bring them up to date thereby decreasing that drag on our workload (which happened to also impact other offices like HR, Finance and Acquisitions).

QSIs are great if you can get them. The last one I was put in for occurred because I asked my supervisor if I qualified for one. She did some research and decided I did. Turned out more than one person in the directorate did, so top leadership decided to not single any one of us as being more worthy (so they said!).

Ok, so not only did I get outstanding performance rating, I also got “Outstanding Contribution by a New Employee” award. QSI or not, I feel like I need to keep up the pace in order to keep up with the performance expectations 😅
