SUBJECT: Position Classification Advisory for KA36640, GS-2005-03

1. References:


2. Current Classification: Supply clerk, (KA36640), GS-2005-03.

3. Background: This position is located in the Logistics Readiness Center, Supply & Services Division, Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. The position description, Supply Clerk, KA36640, GS-2005-03 was classified 28 July 1999, (ref. a) in the one grade interval series, GS-2005. Management requested a position review 14 June 2016 for a possible accretion of duties due to concerns regarding additional duties performed when a new computer system was implemented. Duties numbered 3 and 4 are additional duties identified due to the new computer system.

4. Classification findings: SUPPLY CLERK, GS-2005-03

a. Title and Series Determination: The GS-2005 standard states Supply clerks and technicians perform work in a wide range of systematized supply operations, such as performing records functions in inventory, storage, cataloging, and receipt and control processes. Employees typically do work associated with one of the supply management or operations processes. Correct title for position is as assigned: Supply Clerk, GS-2005.

b. Grade Determination: The GS-2005 series is written in the Factor Evaluation System (FES) format, under which factor levels and accompanying point values are to be assigned for each of the following nine factors, and the total points supporting a grade level by use of the grade conversion table in the Classification Standard. For a position to warrant a given factor level and point value, it must be fully equivalent to the overall intent of the selected factor-level. If the position fails in any significant aspect to meet a particular factor-level description, the point value for the next lower factor level must be assigned.

Factor 1, Knowledge required by the position

This factor measures the nature and extent of information or facts an employee must understand to do acceptable work (e.g., steps, procedures, practices, rules, policies, theories, principles, and concepts) and the nature and extent of the skills necessary to apply that knowledge.

Assignments at Level 1-2 requires knowledge of basic or commonly applied rules, procedures, or operations typically requiring limited training and experience. Knowledge of computer systems and personal computer or terminal operation is used for basic entry and retrieval operations. The knowledge required for this position exceeds Level 1-2 whereby the duties performed require a higher level of training and experience to fully meet the processing, inventory, and error investigation requirements.

Assignments at Level 1- 3 require knowledge of standardized supply regulations, policies, procedures, or other instructions relating to the specific functions assigned. Most positions require familiarity with one or more automated supply data bases to enter, correct, and retrieve recurring reports and to structure and retrieve specialized reports. Employees use a sound working knowledge of the structure of the local supply organization and the organizations serviced. Employees use this knowledge and ability to perform a range of standard clerical assignments and to resolve recurring problems.

The knowledge required for this position meets Level 1-3. The outlined duties require the employee have a greater than basic knowledge of supply policies, regulations, and procedures to carry out the mission. This position entails the use of multiple supply tracking systems to include the Global Combat Support System-Army (GCSS-A), Packaging, Storage, and Containerization Center (PSCC), and existing Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. The employee monitors inventory, initiates survey, orders materials, and resolves recurring problems by following standardized procedures.

The position does not meet Level 1-4. The duties are not complex enough to warrant a thorough knowledge of policies and procedures and the employee is not required to deal with or reconstruct complex transactions.

This factor is assigned Level 1-3 and 350 points are credited.

Factor 2, Supervisory controls

This factor measures the nature and extent of supervision exercised over the position, the employee’s responsibility, and the review of completed work.

Work performed at Level 2-1 is closely controlled, under the technical supervision of a supervisor and typically involves routine, repetitive tasks. Instructions for unusual or new assignments are given on a task basis. The employee’s level of responsibility and expectation to work mostly independently exceeds Level 2-1.

At Level 2-2 work is performed under the technical guidance of a supervisor who issues general work assignments, controls flow of day-to-day work, and explains major changes in regulations or procedures. The employee uses initiative in carrying out recurring assignments independently without specific instruction, but refers deviations, problems, and unfamiliar situations to the supervisor.

This position meets Level 2-2. Duties such as monitoring authorized stock list items and researching recurring errors and taking actions to correct the errors are carried out independently in accordance with previous training and instruction. Employee is expected to respond to inquiries and establish and conduct surveys and inventories when needed.

The position does not meet Level 2-3. While the employee does complete some tasks independently, the supervisor handles deviations, problems and unusual situations. The employees work is reviewed for technical accuracy and the methods to complete the work are outlined in detail.

This factor is assigned Level 2-2 and 125 points are credited.

Factor 3, Guidelines
Concur with current classification – Level 3-2, 125 points credited.

Factor 4, Complexity
Concur with current classification – Level 4-2, 75 points credited.

Factor 5, Scope and Effect
Concur with current classification – Level 5-2, 75 points credited.

Factor 6 & 7, Personal Contacts and Purpose of Contacts
Concur with current classification – Level 2a, 45 points credited.

Factor 8, Physical Demands

This position requires the employee to carry, with assistance, items weighing up to 70 pounds. The requirement does not fit Level 8-1 which states no physical demands are required to perform the work. The carrying requirement does match Level 8-2 which requires some physical exertion such as long periods of standing; walking over rough, uneven, or rocky surfaces; recurring bending, crouching, stooping, stretching, reaching; or similar activities.

This factor is assigned Level 8-2 and 20 points are credited.

Factor 9, Work Environment

The employee that fills this position is assigned a desk in a heated, lighted, ventilated office but is also required to spend a portion of the work day in a warehouse environment. The warehouse
involves moderate risks or discomforts which require special safety precautions. The employee may be required to use protective clothing or gear such as masks, gowns, safety shoes, goggles, hearing protection, and gloves. This work environment fully meets Level 9-2.
This factor is assigned Level 9-2 and 20 points are credited.

Summary of FES Factors

Factor Level Points
1. Knowledge required by position 1-3 350
2. Supervisory controls 2-2 125
3. Guidelines 3-2 125
4. Complexity 4-2 75
5. Scope and Effect 5-2 75
6 & 7. Personal contacts/purpose 2-A 45
8. Physical Demands 8-2 20
9. Work Environment 9-2 20
Total 835
A total of 835 points falls within the GS-04 range (655-850) on the grade conversion table in the GS-2005 standard. Therefore, this position duties are graded at the GS-04 level.

5. Classification conclusion: The correct grade for the level of work is GS-04. This work unit within the organization currently includes one GS-07 Supply Technician, two WG-05 Material Handlers and one GS-03 Supply Clerk. The additional duties added to the GS-2005-03 position were the result of technology changes (new computer system) and general organization downsizing. The other candidates within the work unit have different types of duties (unloading trucks, rotating stock etc.) that are not compatible with the additional duties assigned to the GS-03 and therefore it is not appropriate to reassign those duties to the other candidates. Accretion of duties are found to be warranted. The correct classification for this position is: Supply Clerk, GS-2005-04.
