Performance Management

DCPAS is responsible for the oversight of the Senior Executive Service (SES) and Senior Professional (SP) performance management systems. DCPAS ensures that performance is linked and assessed against individual and organizational results-oriented goals of DOD and/or Component strategic plans, organizational assessments, and Presidential or other strategic initiatives.

In partnership with DOD Components, DCPAS promotes a performance management culture in which the performance and contributions of executives are accurately and fully recognized and rewarded. As such, DOD operates a certified performance management system affording SES and SP members with the ability to earn maximum rate of basic pay, Level II of the Executive Schedule, as well as a higher aggregate limitation on pay, up to the Vice President’s salary.
