If, after your application has been rated by the Subject Matter Expert, you are found to meet none of the KSAS listed above, you will be placed in the Bronze category.
This assessment method does not add veterans' preference points but protects the rights of veterans by placing them ahead of non-preference eligibles within each category.
How veterans preference is applied- All applicants who are eligible for veterans preference (based on the documents submitted) will receive preference over non-veterans. Preference eligibles who meet minimum qualification requirements and who have a compensable service-connected disability of at least 10 percent are listed in the highest quality category, except when the position being filled is scientific or professional at the GS-9 grade level or higher. A selecting official may make selections from the highest quality category (Gold) provided no preference eligible in that category is passed over to select a non-preference eligible in that category unless the requirements of 5 U.S.C 3317(b) or 3318(b) are satisfied.
