Pandemic FAQ

Question
Would an agency have to advertise pandemic-related critical positions on USAJOBS before using these authorities?
Answer
Advertising positions on USAJOBS is not required for the first three authorities listed in the previous question. An agency would have to advertise the position before using Direct-Hire Authority (DHA) or re-hiring a former employee or an annuitant if the appointment will last longer than 120 days, including extensions. Contracting with a private sector temporary firm is done under the Federal Acquisition Regulations.
