Postmaster Pay For Performance (PFP) ratings wil be applied to salary determinations for FY 2014 and FY 2015. A decision on PFP ratings applications to salaries for FY 2013 has not yet been determined.

These assingments should provide the impacted Postmasters with the needed experience to better qualify for vacant level 18 positions prior to the RIF effective date next year.

From the National Association of Postal Supervisors:
NAPS requested clarification from Postal Headquarters regarding the announcement that Postal Service officer and executive compensation would be frozen, as it relates to the Postal Serviceâ€™s pay-for-performance program. Postal Headquarters stated that the USPS Awards Program for employee recognition and incentive awards which includes monetary SPOT Awards, AVP Awards, etc. will be suspended until further notice. The pay-for-performance (PFP) program pertaining to field EAS is not subject to this suspension. Furthermore, NAPS pay agreement with the USPS regarding PFP expired on October 1, 2010. Therefore, at this time, NAPS is under no agreement with the USPS regarding PFP after FY2010.
