The grade level of any federal position is based on the actual work assigned, as described in the position description, and as evaluated relative to position classification standards published by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). In carrying out its responsibility under law for developing and issuing classification standards, OPM conducts studies and writes new standards/revises existing standards to respond to needs and priorities determined by agencies, the identification of new occupations, and/or analysis of existing classification standards:
Selection of the standard used to evaluate a position will be based on the nature of the work of the position and the occupational series assigned. If you have any questions, contact your servicing HR Specialist, Code 113.
