    I dont think that Federal agencies have contracts like many Police Departments do. When do you get a raise as a FED?

      Thanks. So, how long does it take to go from say a 7 to 12? Five Years?

          You're a GS 9 Step 1 for one year, then basically promoted to GS 11 Step 1 for one year, GS 12 Step 1 for one year, and so on. This is only if you're making "fully successful" or better on your performance evaluation, otherwise things could move slower.

          Advancement in steps after you've made your top level requires...

          (TAKEN FROM THE OPM WEBSITE)

          step 1 to step 2
          52 weeks of creditable service at step 1

          step 2 to step 3
          52 weeks of creditable service at step 2

          step 3 to step 4
          52 weeks of creditable service in step 3

          step 4 to step 5
          104 weeks of creditable service in step 4

          step 5 to step 6
          104 weeks of creditable service in step 5

          step 6 to step 7
          104 weeks of creditable service in step 6

          step 7 to step 8
          156 weeks of creditable service in step 7

          step 8 to step 9
          156 weeks of creditable service in step 8

          step 9 to step 10
          156 weeks of creditable service in step 9

            It takes a year to go from step to step until you reach step 4. To go from 4up is two years until you hit step 7. From step 7 it takes three years between steps up to step 10. At least that how I remember reading it, I might be off a little.
            But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

            For the intelectually challenged: If the government screws the people enough, it is the right and responsibility of the people to revolt and form a new government.

              It depends.

              As a CO, I started as a GL-5 step 1. After 1 year I will be a GL-6 step 2. My third year I become a GL-7 step 3. After that, unless I promote, I am stuck at GL-7 and my raises will be based on step increases.

                Like the K said, it depends. If you want to know how a particular agency does it, ask about. The general rule of thumb is the:

                Year one - 5
                Year two - 7
                Year three - 9
                Year four - 11
                Year five - 12
                etc.

                model, but many agencies add their own twists to upgrades.

                  5 to 7= 6 months or 7 to 9 = 6 months if you get hired as a GS 7
                  7 to 9= 1 year from the date you got your 6 month grade increase
                  9 to 11= 1 year
                  11 to 12 = 1 year
                  then you start going up in steps.

                    What does one have to do to not get 'fully successful' ? And does this come into play for 1811 non competetive to GS13 ?

                      Depends on the agency. In mine you really have to screw up, big time. Our rating system is pass/fail. To receive a successful rating all that has to be done is show up and successfully change O2 into CO2 (sometimes I think the last part is optional). The supervisor doesn't have to justify your rating. Since a supervisor must justify a "not successful" rating a lot of writing is needed on the supervisors' part. As a result of the writing required, you have to really screw up a lot, or make your supervisor hate you. One of my co-workers was in the supervisor's office on a monthly basis getting chewed, but still received a successful rating.

                        Following this model from year one at a GS-5 to year five at a GS-12, where do the steps 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. come in?

                              Anyone have anything specific on NCIS. I dont remember what they started at under the GS system which seems to be coming back.
