Pandemic FAQ

Question
Is there a hiring authority available to immediately fill critical positions in reaction to a pandemic influenza?
Answer
Schedule A (5 CFR 213.3102(i)(2)) may be used without OPM approval to fill critical positions for 30 days. These appointments may be extended for an additional 30 days so agencies can determine their longer-term needs in dealing with pandemic influenza.
