DCIPS Suspended Pending Review

By Ed O'Keefe

Updated and Corrected 12:31 p.m. ET

The Eye received several queries from concerned readers this morning, wondering if the deal announced Wednesday also repeals the Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System, or the intelligence community's version of the National Security Personnel System.

The program will undergo a review by the Government Accountability Office and Congress before reconsideration. Officials will also consider employee feedback. (Read more on page 4 of this summary.)

The compromise bill suspends DCIPS for everyone except employees at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. The bill states that no employees will suffer any loss or decrease in pay as a result of phasing out of DCIPS.

More details later...

I don't know what you mean by WE, but WE hard workers are not happy. It was promising to know they might weed out the people who do nothing, but keep getting raises for sitting in one spot all day and doing NOTHING...... Pay for performance is always going to be the best way to keep good people.

The sense of entitlement that is so prevalent in this country is staggering, and quite frankly, sickening. I saw a post from a IC emp complaining that they hadnt recieved a payraise in over a year (they did get a WGI buyout however) due to the transition. As someone who worked on DCIPS implementation across the IC, the average govvies ignorance on pay-for-performance is breathtaking. If you were a "Successful" employee, you would have got a raise similiar to GS. Above this level, employees could have recieved 4-7% pay increase and a bonus. Here again, with the impending death of DCIPS, is the proof that Maobama cares more about appeasing unions and those who are unwillingly to work hard to achieve success. Also, nice waste of taxpayer dollars - millions spent over the past few years to get DCIPS off the ground. Nice
