                                            Case No. 0-AR-858
 
                                 DECISION
 
    This matter is before the Authority on exceptions to the award of
 Arbitrator L. Lawrence Shultz filed by the Agency under section 7122(a)
 of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute and part 2425
 of the Authority's Rules and Regulations.
 
    The grievance in this case concerns the claim of the grievant that
 she performed the duties of a higher-grade position for an extended
 period of time for which she was entitled under the parties' collective
 bargaining agreement to have been temporarily promoted.  The Arbitrator
 sustained the grievance finding that the grievant was entitled under the
 agreement to have been temporarily promoted for the period of June 8,
 1983 to August 24, 1983.  Accordingly, the Arbitrator awarded the
 grievant backpay for that period in the amount of the difference in what
 she was paid and what she should have been paid.
 
    In its exceptions the Agency contends that the award is deficient
 because the grievant did not meet the minimum qualification requirements
 for a tempo
