Promotion and classification


Q. In October, I went up to a GL-7 step 5 making $49,138. If I get selected for the GL-8 Senior Officer Specialist position I put in for, what step will I become? Do you gain an extra step as part of the promotion?

A. You must be paid at least the equivalent of a two-step increase in the grade from which you were promoted.
