Classification Definitions:

Position Classification:  The process of determining the appropriate pay plan, title, series, and grade of a position in accordance with prevailing laws, standards, and guides.

Position Management:  The process of assuring that work is organized and assigned among positions in a manner which will serve mission needs efficiently and economically.

Position Description (PD):  A PD describes principal duties, responsibilities, and supervisory relationships of a position to provide information necessary for its proper classification. (Also sometimes called a "Job Description".)

Hierarchy Forms:

Please send your updated hierarchy forms to the Classification Section.  These forms are used to ensure your Supervisors and employees are linked. These updates are very important for maintaining the supervisor employee linkage for the Performance Appraisal Application (PAA). The forms are critical when processing personnel actions to appoint, reassign, or promote employees. Download the template Hierarchy Form [PDF 1.41MB]
