This thesis examines the impact of the Civil Service Reform Act (CSRA) of 1978 on performance evaluation at the field activity level. Reviews of both the CSRA and various methods of performance appraisal are conducted in order to analyze performance evaluation characteristics relative to the requirements of the CSRA for performance appraisal. The results of this analysis were then compared to specific positions within Naval activity comptroller departments to demonstrate how the basis for a standardized framework for evaluations can be developed for Navy-wide applications. Sets of potential critical elements for three specific positions were derived based on this framework and an example of performance standards for a specific critical element was shown. In conclusion this thesis makes several recommendations for ensuring that the intent of the CSRA requirement for flexibility of performance evaluations is maintained while allowing guidance and standardization from higher authority.
