DOD Unveils NSPS: The Department of Defense and the US Office of Personnel Management unveiled the final regulations for the proposed National Security Personnel System (NSPS), putting them into the Federal Register. At a Pentagon news conference on Oct. 26, Acting Undersecretary of Defense Gordon England said that NSPS will provide a modern, flexible system that will better support its workers. The labor relations part of the program will go into effect after a mandatory 30-day review by Congress. Public employee unions have criticized the Pentagon for not giving them adequate information on the program, noting changes to performance evaluation and firing regulations.
