Criterion A cases are based on
demonstrated executive experience. Candidates must demonstrate that
they have experience/competence in all 5 ECQs.

Criterion C cases are based on the candidate's

full competence in the 5 ECQs. The package submitted for QRB approval
must contain the agency's assessment of why the selectee uniquely
qualifies for the position, and an Individual Development Plan that
focuses on the specific ECQs that need to be enhanced.
