inconsistent with any merit system principle or any provision

thereof relating to prohibited personnel practices.

(d)(1) Each demonstration project shall -

(A) involve not more than 5,000 individuals other than

individuals in any control groups necessary to validate the

results of the project; and

bargaining agreement, until there has been consultation or

negotiation, as appropriate, by the agency with the labor

organization.
