I was transitioned from NSPS to GS in July 2010, and just received my first rating as a GS employee again.
 
I heard there is some rule floating around in which us folks converted back to GS were only able for a 1% performance award, and there was no mention of a QSI. I am aslo being told we cannot get a QSI this go around; any of this make sense?
 
Thank you
Best Regards,.......Marc

marcb, you are correct. DoD placed a ceiling of 1% for all employees transitioning back to the GS pay system. Our command adhered to these rules but no one received a QSI. Still have to meet req't to receive the QSI.

Why were we held to 1% while other GS employees received higher raises? Our rating period was full 12 months

QSIs are exempt from the freeze, thus they are allowed.  From what I understand though, you must have maxed out your performance rating to be able to receive one and that may be the toughest part to meet.  See Exclusions from pay freeze on page 6 of this OPM letter.

marcb, we were capped bc a lot of us received an increase upon transition. Some $1 some $10000. I received about a $5000 increase and my bonus was $630. I'm a GS-11 step 1.

DrLove, what were the details here? You sponsored an employee for a QSI, and he got it? But he was the only one on the whole base?

Interesting

Quality Step Increases (QSIs) should not be viewed as a normal performance recognition, as some assume. As mentioned in above entry, significant justification, special performance effort, and expected continued performance all go into the very rare QSI consideration. If they were handed out like candy, they would lose their significance and be nothing more than an extension of normal step increases (which they definitely are NOT). QSIs must be reserved for the rare, exceptional employee performance.
