Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Most civilian positions in the Federal government of the United States are part of the competitive service, where applicants must compete with other applicants in open competition under the merit system administered by the Office of Personnel Management. However, some agencies are excluded from these provisions. Although they primarily operate on a merit basis also, they have their own hiring systems and evaluation criteria. These agencies are called excepted service agencies and such positions are part of the excepted civil service. The primary common denominator of many of these agencies and positions is that they have national security and/or intelligence functions, such as the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of State, the National Security Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Attorney positions, Presidential Management Fellows, and Foreign Service positions are examples of positions excepted across-the-board in all Federal agencies.show more
