Abstract : Under Section 506 of the Ethics Reform Act of 1989 (Pub. L. 101-194, November 30, 1989) as further regulated in 5 CFR Parts 213, 317, 359, and 842, and amplifying guidance from the Office of Personnel Management, Senior Executive Service (SES) career appointees are subject to recertification by their agencies every third year, beginning in calendar year 1991. The Act adds section 3393a to title 5 of the U.S.C. The section states that recertification is intended: 'to ensure that the performance of career appointees demonstrates the excellence needed to meet the goals of the Senior Executive Service, as set forth in section 3131....' Thus, the Act aims at ensuring that the career members of the SES represent the best that this country has to offer in managing the public's business. It establishes a recertification process that goes beyond the annual performance appraisal, which remains as one of the essential features of the SES, to look at how the executive has performed over a period of several years and whether the executive's overall performance during that period has demonstrated the excellence expected of a senior executive. It is intended to enhance the performance of the SES, to set a standard of excellence for members of the SES, and to ensure that executives remain in the SES only when they perform at the expected level of excellence.
