GSA offers second round of buyouts
Monday - 7/2/2012, 9:18am EDT
The General Services Administration is offering buyouts and early retirements to 1,022 employees for a "limited number of positions."
The employees have until July 20 to apply and must separate from service between Aug. 3 and Sept. 30, according to an email from a GSA spokesman.
This is the second of three rounds of buyouts and early outs this year at the agency.
"Eligible employees received an email this morning explaining the program and what they should do to learn more. If you did not get that email, your position is not eligible under the authorized program," according to an email from GSA's Chief People Officer Tony Costa sent to staff on June 28.
Staff eligible for the buyouts and early outs are in the Federal Acquisition Service (FAS), Public Buildings Service (PBS), Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO), Office of the Chief People Officer (OCPO) and the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO).
As previously reported by Federal News Radio, GSA had targeted about 600 positions — or 5 percent of the overall workforce — in the first round. Eighty-five GSA employees were approved in phase one, according to a GSA spokesman.
Round one targeted employees at FAS, OCIO, Office of Governmentwide Policy and Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies.
A GSA spokesman said the acceptance rate for round one was about 18 percent.
"We expect the Phase 2 acceptance rate to be in that range," he said in an email to Federal News Radio.
GSA has set up an internal website with information on the buyouts.
GSA will submit a request for the third round of buyouts and early outs but has not yet targeted which groups the agency will target.
