DOD awards personnel system training contract

The Defense Department has awarded SI International Inc. a $1.9 million training contract to help users learn the new National Security Personnel System.

The Reston, Va., company will help the Defense Department develop training in areas that include pay and classification, performance management and labor relations.

Under the contract, SI will train the Defense Department civilian workforce on the personnel system. More than 300,000 Army, Navy, Air Force and defense civilian employees in the United States will take part in the courses, beginning this summer.

NSPS was laid out in the fiscal 2004 defense authorization bill as a way to change how the department hires, pays, promotes and disciplines civilian employees. The system gives managers more flexibility to move civilian workers to where they are most needed and cut hiring time for new workers.
