The Foreign Service (FS) Employee Performance & Development Program (EP&D) is a performance management program through which USAID involves its employees in improving organizational effectiveness in the accomplishment of the Agency’s mission and goals (see ADS 461, Foreign Service and Senior Foreign Service Performance Management & Development Programs). In support of EP&D, this chapter establishes clear guidelines and policy for performance-based actions to be taken when employees fail to achieve a satisfactory level of performance.
