4.1.1 An executive's initial SES career appointment becomes final only after the individual successfully completes a one-year probationary period.
4.1.2 The probationary period begins on the effective date of the Notification of Personnel Action appointing the executive to the SES as a career appointee.
4.1.3 During the probationary period, the executive's supervisor shall:
a. Observe the executive's performance and conduct.
b. Hold periodic, documented discussions of progress, clearly outlining strengths and areas to develop in relation to the position requirements. Progress reviews are used to identify and resolve problems that constitute obstacles to performance beyond the executive's control, revise the performance plan, provide feedback to the executive on the current level of performance, and explore ways to improve performance, as appropriate.
c. Ensure the executive completes the Agency On-boarding Plan and any other Agency or QRB recommended training.
d. Initiate action with the CHCO and the Deputy Administrator or Associate Administrator, as appropriate, to remove the executive from the SES if it becomes apparent, after full and fair consideration, that the executive's performance or conduct is not suitable for satisfactory executive work.
(1) If it is determined that the employee's performance is unacceptable, the employee may be removed from the SES after receiving the required advance written notice of removal.
(a) A removal for performance need not be based on an official rating of record.
(b) The removal is effective before the last day of the employee's probationary period and is effective on a workday.
(2) If it is determined that the employee's conduct is unacceptable and the employee:
(a) Was covered by the provisions under Adverse Actions, 5 U.S.C. ch. 75 immediately prior to appointment to the SES, then the procedures in Adverse Actions, 5 CFR pt. 752 apply to a removal during probationary period for conduct (removal from the civil service).
(b) Was not covered by 5 U.S.C. ch. 75 immediately prior to appointment to the SES, then the procedures in Removal from the Senior Executive Service; Guaranteed Placement in Other Personnel Systems, 5 CFR pt. 359 and paragraph 4.1.3.d. (1) (a) and (b) of this directive apply, including guaranteed placement into another civil service position. In either case, consult an Executive Services Business Partner for further guidance.
