​​​​​​From the summary: “Because of concerns that problems were occurring, the Chairman, House Committee on Post Office and Civil Service, requested GAO to review the implementation of legislative changes to the government’s merit pay system. In November 1984, the Congress had enacted these changes which constituted the Performance Management and Recognition System (PMRS). PMRS, which covers federal supervisory and managerial employees, was intended to strengthen and improve the pay for performance principles introduced by the merit pay system.”
