The “COPY PLAN FROM PREVIOUS” button allows the supervisor to copy last year’s plan then enter changes as necessary.

In this example, the separate EEO-CR element for the non-supervisor will be deleted and incorporated into the customer service element. Delete the element: Click on the “-” (minus sign) to delete the element.

Read the message and click “OK” And the element is deleted.
To incorporate the EEO-CR requirement into another critical element, locate the applicable critical element and insert the following language beneath the element description in the Standards box: “EEO-CR Element Description: Performs all duties in a manner that consistently demonstrates fairness, cooperation, and respect toward coworkers, office visitors, and all others in the performance of official business. Demonstrates an awareness of EO/CR policies and responsibilities of FSA and Departmental goals of valuing a diverse, yet unified workforce”. You may also cut and paste the text from the original EEO-CR element box.
After including the required EEO-CR element description, scroll down to add at least one EEO-CR standard. Leave the “accomplishments” box blank For now.
If you incorporate the EEO-CR requirement into another “critical” Element for the non-supervisor, you must include at least 1 EEO-CR standard.
Review the elements and standards in the plan and Ensure that all required elements and standards Are included in accordance with Handbook 5-PM. Add, delete, and/or revise the Standards in the standard box as Necessary.
If you need to add a new element to the plan, Click the “+” (plus) sign to insert a row. Per Handbook 5-PM, the minimum number of elements allowed in a Plan is 3 and the maximum number allowed is 7.
