- The employee's performance is less than satisfactory and he/she has not been given a performance plan or otherwise told of the specific requirements for fully successful performance at least 30 calendar days before the end of the waiting period. In this situation, the supervisor would promptly contact the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center (CPAC) for guidance.
- The employee has been reassigned or demoted because of unacceptable performance and is or will be eligible within 60 days for a WGI. The CPAC would notify the supervisor of the requirement to postpone.
If the employee's performance remains unacceptable, action must be taken to withhold the WGI.
