Defense Secretary Robert Gates decided to drop what’s called the Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System, a pay-for-performance system used for a large number of the department’s intelligence employees. James Clapper, who headed the Natinoal Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) and will be the new director of national intelligence, penned a memo that says all those workers, save those at NGA, will move to a difference system. The NGA has its own pay for performance system that’s been in use for about a decade. The DCIPS appears to be much newer, though I could not find the date when it went into effect.
