This report addresses the implementation of NSPS in the Department of Defense (DoD) from the time of enactment to the point where the last NSPS regulations were published at the end of the George W. Bus Administration. Three distinct temporal periods are identified in the implementation phase of NSPS history. The initial DoD implementation strategy immediately following enactment of the FY 2004 Defense Authorization Act was led by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness). It focused on rapid deployment of a new personnel system, including pay for performance and pay banding, based on a prior study of best practices. In Spring, 2004 the Department decided on a “strategic pause” in the face of implementation issues and criticism from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) . During this period, the Department developed a new structure to facilitate implementation and address the OPM’s concerns. This strategic pause was followed by the third period of implementation with the formation of the Program Executive Office for NSPS. Implementation of NSPS was impacted by strong opposition from public sector unions, increasing congressional oversight, and by court cases brought by the unions that slowed and narrowed DoD’s roll out of NSPS. Nevertheless, the Department persisted. The final portion of NSPS regulations of the Bush administration were published in the January 16, 2009, Federal Register.
