The purpose of the Academic Assistance (Tuition Reimbursement) program is for workforce planning and development. It provides a tool for managers and employees to support academic activities that directly relate to the organization’s identified knowledge, skills, and behaviors (organizational competencies), and which support the mission, vision, and values of the organization. The academic assistance program is not an employee benefit, right or entitlement; it is a management program for workforce development. Utilization of the academic assistance program shall be identified, described, and documented in the employee’s individual development plan. This provides a measurable link between the employee’s increased competency and the agency’s workforce planning efforts. The academic assistance program provides reimbursement of academic costs if funds are available at the department level.
