Briefing for Change in CJE Performance Plan for PALS Position, GS-1171 August 2009
Background The Restructuring Act of 1998 prohibited Revenue Officers from selling seized property. The PALS position was created to dispose of seized property. Since the creation of the PALS position and the last revision of the CJE’s the PALS position has evolved. In addition to selling property seized by RO’s PALS are selling lien foreclosure property for the Department of Justice, evaluating assets for Insolvency and appraising more complex properties including income producing properties.
Background (cont.) Revisions to the CJE’s are needed to reflect marketing responsibilities, more complex assignments and the independent nature of the position. The revised CJEs better align to the duties of the position to the work being done by the PALS.
Background (cont.) PALS and PALS group managers have provided feedback that the CJEs need to be updated.
Impact on PALS Recognizes the marketing duties that are presently being performed in CJE’s. Clarifies that independence is a factor to be considered in rating performance. More clearly defines the aspects of assignments such as large lot auctions, and appraising income producing property that would relate to an exceeds rating.
For most PALS, there will be no change in duties or the way they work cases For some PALS the changes will make it easier to determine the type of performance that relates to a rating of exceeds. For example when they appropriately use more than one appraisal method to determine value of a complex asset. Workload will not change because of these changes. Impact (cont.)
