ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- Based on the success achieved by Anniston Army Depot personnel in fiscal year 2016 in meeting the majority of the Group Award Program metrics, we obtained a payout of $1,329 for eligible employees.

ANAD employees are reminded the goal of the GAP is to reward the workforce for contributions enabling the depot to meet or exceed established metrics in support of readiness efforts.

For fiscal year 2017, an agreement has been reached between ANAD leadership and the local American Federation of Government Employees on the GAP for FY2017.

The maximum payout established for FY17 is $1,500 per eligible employee based on the criteria provided below, with an anticipated payout date of Nov. 23, 2017.

The metrics were condensed for this year and include the categories of Productive Yield (direct and indirect), Performance to Promise and the Net Operating Result (NOR).

The entire policy and metrics are located on the ANAD Intranet under Regulations & Policies/Commander's Policies/ANAD GAP FY17 Policy, for those who would like to read about, or better understand, the overall goals.

Additionally, the policy has been made available via e-mail to all ANAD personnel with computer access.

If anyone has questions concerning how to have a positive impact on the metrics, please discuss this with your supervisor.

As we did last year, progress against the metrics will be provided on a recurring basis in TRACKS. Please be sure to read and "track" where we stand each time.

The established goals are within our reach and I know every employee will rise to the challenge!
