KIMBERLY A. HOLDEN, DEPUTY ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR - EMPLOYEE SERVICES
Subject: 
Second Release for the Draft Job Family Position Classification Standard for Support Work in the General Program and Office Services Group, 0300

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is releasing the second draft Job Family Position Classification Standard (JFS) for Support Work in the General Program and Office Services Group.  As a result of numerous recommendations and suggestions from the agencies, we propose the following modifications to the initial draft release: elimination of the basic title for Administrative Assistance Series, 0303, reinstating the Mail and File Assistance series, 0305, and the Program Assistance series, 0344.  We have also increased the number of additional occupational considerations and reviewed and added more Factor Level Descriptions (FLD) and illustrations to ensure appropriateness and consistency.

We are providing a 30-day general comment period.  Accordingly, please provide your comments by October 19, 2012.

We rely on agency human resources officials with positions covered by this draft position classification standard to contact subject matter experts and program management officials to ensure they are aware of the release of this second draft standard and to seek their input.  We depend on your input to assist us in making the appropriate adjustments to ensure the final standard meets your needs.

If you have questions or would like to discuss this draft standard, please contact Ike Udejiofor at (202) 606-4106 or by email to ike.udejiofor@opm.gov
