What is the purpose of this section? The purpose of this section is to provide procedures and guidelines for recognizing employees of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) who reach certain career milestones.
Does this directive cancel an existing FHWA directive? Yes. This directive cancels Personnel Management Manual (PMM) Chapter 9, Section 3, Length-of-Service Recognition, dated June 28, 1996.
What reference was used in writing this section? Departmental Personnel Manual, Chapter 451, dated December 29, 2003, was used in writing the section.
How is length-of-service recognized? The FHWA shall recognize employees for their total creditable service with the Federal government. The service need not be continuous. Military service creditable toward an employee's service computation date and Federal service with other Federal agencies are included.
Career recognition will be granted at the completion of the following years of service: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and above.
Employees who reach the 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25-year milestones will receive a length-of-service certificate and pin.
Washington Headquarters employees who attain the 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and above years of service will be recognized at a quarterly ceremony and will receive a length-of-service certificate, pin, and a recognition item.
Field employees who attain the 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and above years of service will receive a congratulatory letter from the Federal Highway Administrator, a length-of-service certificate, pin, and a recognition item.
The Office of Human Resources (HAHR) will generate, on a quarterly basis, a computer listing of those employees who will have reached one of the designated milestones.
HAHR will prepare the certificates and congratulatory letters and arrange to have them signed by the Federal Highway Administrator.
In Washington Headquarters, HAHR will distribute the certificates and pins of employees who have reached the 5 to 25-year milestones to the appropriate program coordinators for distribution.
HAHR will also arrange the quarterly recognition ceremonies for employees who have reached the 30-year and above milestones.
In the field offices, certificates, pins, congratulatory letters, and length-of-service recognition catalogs of field employees will be sent to the servicing human resources offices for distribution. Field office supervisors will arrange appropriate presentation ceremonies for their employees
