The National Security Personnel System (NSPS) Transition Office announced on its web site this week that a majority of NSPS employees will transition to non-NSPS personnel systems (mostly GS systems) by September 30, 2010.  This means that transition will begin more than a year earlier than the deadline for all NSPS employees set by the FY2010 Defense Authorization Act.  Components will notify affected employees of actual dates after they have submitted their final plans to the Transition Office.  An Armed Forces Press Service article contains additional information on the announcement.
