Level 3Fully Successful The average score of the three appraisal levels is less than 4.3, with no contribution factor being rated a 1 (Unacceptable), resulting in a rating of
record that is a 3. Level 1Unacceptable Any contribution factor rated as 1. acqdemo.hci.mil 28 Contribution-Based Compensation and Appraisal System (CCAS) Reduction in Force (RIF) Congressional mandate to initiate separations in RIF based primarily on performance A Quality of Performance rating of Outstanding (5), Fully Successful (3), or Unacceptable (1) added to the assessment process and becomes the annual rating of record 1st retention factor = Average of the raw averages of the 2 most recent ratings of record within the 4-year period immediately preceding RIF rounded to the
