Additional Information * Failure to provide necessary and relevant information required by this vacancy announcement may disqualify you from consideration. Additional information will not be requested if your application is incomplete. Your application will be evaluated solely on the basis of information you have submitted. * The selectee will be required to serve a one-year probationary period for initial assignment to a supervisory position. * Required Leadership Training: All FBI supervisors promoted after January 2013 are required to attend and complete the Training Division's Leading People course before the expiration of their probationary period. Employees who previously attended the Leadership Seminar are not required to attend Leading People. Leading People, a four day course, will help prepare supervisors for the leadership challenges specific to their new roles. Leading People will be held at the Center for Leadership Excellence at the FBI Academy in Quantico, VA. After selection, supervisors will need to register for the Leading People Course in Virtual Academy. * Limited Movement: Policy has been implemented wherein support employees entering a position through a competitive OR non-competitive action may be precluded from moving to another position within the Bureau by means of reassignment or change to lower grade for a minimum of 12 months. HRD will waive this limited movement policy for qualified employees, who have received an official notification letter that their current position is being relocated to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama by 2021, so those employees can compete for a position elsewhere. * Probationary employees are precluded from being considered for all job opportunities until 12-months of their two-year probationary period has concluded. Probationary employees may be considered for competitive vacancies that are advertised within their respective division or field office after serving 90 days within the FBI. * Candidates will not be considered if currently on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP); a Letter of Requirement (LOR); or have failed a PIP or LOR and are currently awaiting the final action by HRD. a. A Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) is a 90-day written developmental plan for an employee whose performance on one or more critical elements is rated "Unacceptable." b. A Letter of Requirement (LOR) is issued when a supervisor identifies leave abuse and/or when frequent absences negatively impact operations of an office. * Relocation expenses will be borne by the FBI (a service agreement of one year is required). FBI employees returning from LEGAT assignments must advise the Staffing and Administrative Unit / International Operations Division of their application for this position. * On December 22, 2017, the President signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This law may impact your transfer. * This legislation made previously non-taxed moving expense reimbursements taxable as of January 1, 2018. Please see HR Link for a list of the FBI's current understanding of the applicable tax changes. However, this may change upon receipt of official guidance from GSA and DOJ. * Current law provides the FBI with the authority to compensate employees for much of the tax burden caused by a transfer through the Relocation Income Tax Allowance (RITA) process. At this time, it is unclear whether this authority addresses the full impact of the recent change in the tax law. GSA and DOJ are currently reviewing the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), including the RITA process, in an effort to identify ways to minimize the additional tax burden on transferring employees. * Candidates receiving a transfer of physical location, whether at the expense of the FBI or not, will be required to complete a one year commitment to the assignment, prior to moving to a new position at the FBI. The 12-month waiting period begins the day an employee reports for duty at the new location. * Employees selected for positions at the GS-14 level or higher, as well as employees selected for positions where a transfer of location is required, will be processed through the name check program prior to being notified of their selection. * Memorandum of Understanding: Work performed outside assigned duties (that would not normally be documented on a SF-50, i. e., back-up duties), has to be documented in detail by an immediate supervisor in order to receive full credit for amount of time worked in that position. If no documentation is furnished no credit will be given for time worked in that position. The following notations must be specified in the documentation (Memorandum of Understanding): a. Percent of time worked in the particular position (cannot conflict with main duties) b. The month/year work began c. Frequency worked (i.e., daily, monthly, etc.) d. Specific duties performed Attach the Memorandum of Understanding to your application in the "Cover Letters and Attachments" section of My Career Tools on the Careers Home page. Please upload the attachment as type "Other." Nepotism Nepotism is the act of favoring relatives in the hiring process, and is prohibited by law. Public officials are prohibited from hiring or promoting relatives or relatives of officials in their chain of command, as well as actively or indirectly endorse a relative's appointment or promotion. During the hiring process, all selected candidates and FBI hiring managers will be required to certify they are not related to anyone involved in the hiring process.
