    STill awaiting decision. Have been getting Retention Incentives for 9 years prior, with justification. Now told that decision for approval will be determined by a outside committee, and will likely be denied. This is 18%, and will likely cause mass exodus. Is this the downfall of VHA. Other technical fields are trying to move to Wage Grade, instead of GS, status to lower pay.
