TSA, NGA offer buyouts, early outs
Friday - 1/13/2012, 5:21pm EST
TSA plans to offer early retirements to select employees, in an effort to create a more efficient workforce, according to a staff memo obtained by Federal News Radio. Eligible employees can apply between Jan. 15 and April 30. But a TSA spokesman did not say how many jobs the agency is targeting.
Early retirement will not be an option for certain mission-critical employees, such as transportation security officers (TSO), air marshals and some intelligence workers, the memo said. But exceptions may apply. TSO and air marshals, for example, might be eligible if they are affected by restructuring.
This is TSA's second round of early retirements in recent months. The agency's last window closed on Dec. 31.
NGA is offering buyouts to 150 employees, according to a spokesperson. The agency did not say whether the incentive payments, first reported by Government Executive, are motivated by budget pressure or something else. Buyout payments are worth up to $25,000. Employees must apply by Feb. 17 and leave the agency by March 31.
