GAO appeared before the Senate Committee on Armed Services on April 14, 2005, to discuss the Department of Defense's (DOD) implementation of the National Security Personnel System (NSPS). This letter responds to questions for the record.

GAO commented on "flashpoints" raised by the American Federation of Government Employees regarding collective bargaining rights, an internal board to hear labor-management disputes, the standard for mitigation by the Merit System Protection Board, employee performance measures, pay for DOD civilian workforce, and reductions in force. Further, GAO answered questions regarding civilian pay, safeguarding against abuse, employee training, the employee appeals process, and a performance-based pay system.
