Senior officials from the Office of Management and Budget said the White House wants to change how feds are paid and will release proposed changes on Feb. 12, the Associated Press reports.
According to the report, as part of the 2019 budget plan, the new administration wants to put more emphasis on performance-based raises instead of the current system that generally increases pay based on tenure.
The anonymous senior officials said the soon to be released budget proposal would slow tenure-based increases, generating $10 billion over 10 years for performance-based payments, and that the administration believes that most of the clerical work performed by employees can be automated, and there is a greater need for information technology workers and cyber security experts, the report notes.
