An official website of the United States Government.

We know it is sometimes confusing regarding all of the different types of appointing authorities one can use to hire people into the Federal government. We're often asked...can't you just consolidate all of the appointing authorities into one? Why do we have close to two hundred different ways to hire people? Great questions! We grapple with these questions ourselves! (Do you know what it is like to have to keep up with all of these different rules?!?!) In the meantime, you are welcome to read about all of the different appointing authorities and their intended purpose. It may not be like reading The Great Gatsby, but it certainly will help to make you more knowledgeable on all things hiring.
