ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- The depot personnel achieved many of the Group Award Program metrics in FY19, resulting in a significant payout for eligible employees.

As always, 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 productivity, efficiency, and readiness efforts.

For FY20, agreement has been reached between ANAD leadership and the local chapter of the American Federation of Government Employees, AFGE 1945.

The maximum payout established for FY20 is $2,000 per eligible employee, based on the criteria provided below, with an anticipated payout date of Nov. 19, 2020.

This amount is identical to the FY19 maximum.

There are four metrics this year. The categories are:

• Productive Yield -- both direct and indirect

• Performance to Promise

• Net Operating Result

• Continuous Process Improvement

The entire policy, including metrics, is available on the ANAD Intranet under Awards Program, FY20 GAP Policy and Guidance, for those who would like to read about, or better understand, the overall goals.

Additionally, the policy was disseminated to all ANAD personnel with computer access.

If anyone has questions concerning ways to positively impact the metrics, please speak 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 workforce performed very well in FY19 with many of these metrics and I am confident our team will be successful in achieving each of the FY20 goals.

Go Team ANAD!
