Under Rule 6.7, OPM and an agency with a benefit system established as part of a exempt service can enter into an agreement setting out the conditions under which workers in the Agency`s system can be transferred to a competitive service. OpM has agreements with: an exchange contract gives exempted current federal service agents the opportunity to apply for job promotion in a competitive service. Currently, in an organization that is the subject of an exchange agreement or has been unintentionally separated from an organization (some agreements do not cover all positions in the other benefit system); AND the trade agreements provide for a two-way movement. This means that professional and professional workers are eligible for employment in other benefit systems with which the U.S. Office of Personnel Management has described agreements under conditions similar to those of the previous section. A professional or professional worker who is not eligible for employment under an exchange contract may appeal under other appointment procedures to the other benefit system. Persons appointed under these agreements are not subject to a trial period under Part 5 CFR, Part 315, Part H, but acquire public service status upon order. Officers are subject to the monitoring or management sample in Part 315 CFR 5, Part I, but appropriate service in the other benefit system may be considered to determine the applicability of the trial period and eligible performance until the end of the trial period. This agreement includes staff assigned to the function of Inspector General (OIG). An agency cannot designate a worker under an exchange contract in a competitive manner under the conditions listed below. Each exchange agreement sets these conditions. The conditions are not in the federal regulation code.
Individuals who do not qualify to be appointed under the exchange contract may apply for a position in competition review or other appointment procedures, provided the person meets all applicable eligibility requirements. Individuals who are called upon to a competitive service under the exchange agreements benefit from a professional or professional vocation, depending on whether they are serving three years of service for a professional activity or are exempt from it in accordance with 5 CFR 315.201 (c). The service, which begins with the current permanent employment of a person in the other benefit system, is part of the three-year service requirements for a professional activity. Exchange agreements do not allow for temporary or temporary deadlines.
