Frequently Asked Questions Employment

What criteria should agencies use to determine if a non-Federal intern program is comparable to the SCEP?

Agencies must use the criteria set forth in 5 CFR § 213.3202(b)(11)(ii). The non-Federal intern program must also have been a formally structured program requiring a written agreement between the school, student, and Federal agency. For example, the agreement would have addressed issues such as the nature of work assignments, schedule of work assignment and class attendance, evaluation procedures, and requirements for continuation and successful completion of the program.
