6.1.1 The Administrator is the final approval authority for SES Presidential Rank submissions, performance awards, and cash incentive awards, unless otherwise delegated (incentive awards only). Award types include:
a. Performance awards that recognize high quality performance during a one-year appraisal period. To be eligible for an SES performance award, the executive should have received at least a "Successful" rating for service performed in an SES career appointment. Award amounts are made in accordance with Performance Awards, 5 CFR 534.405.
b. Presidential Rank Awards (PRAs) that recognize extraordinary or sustained accomplishment over at least a three-year period as a member of the SES or equivalent. Eligible SES members hold career appointments and have at least three years of career or career-type Federal service at the SES level.
c. Superior Accomplishment Awards (SAAs) that recognize a specific accomplishment achieved through an individual effort in the form of a one-time non-recurring nature that is not tied to overall performance. SAAs above $10,000 are approved by OPM.
d. Other awards as authorized by law to recognize a single, significant act or contribution that is not tied to overall performance.
6.1.2 The cost of all awards, including PRAs, is borne by the employing agency.
