Workforce Restructuring Career Transition

The reemployment priority list (RPL) is the mechanism agencies use to give reemployment consideration to their former competitive service employees separated by reduction in force (RIF) or fully recovered from a compensable injury after more than 1 year. The RPL is a required component of agency positive placement programs. In filling vacancies, the agency must give RPL registrants priority consideration over certain outside job applicants and, if it chooses, also may consider RPL registrants before considering internal candidates.

Two types of career transition programs exist. One is for employees before they separate, called the Career Transition Assistance Plan (CTAP). The other is for interagency assistance before and after separation, called the Interagency Career Transition Assistance Plan (ICTAP).
