When an individual is barred from federal employment up until a certain date and that date passes, and the person then wants to apply for a federal position, what necessary steps should that person (applicant) take via the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM)?

Once a period of debarment from competition for, or appointment to, specified positions has expired, a person is eligible to apply to any vacancy announcement posted following the application procedures outlined for the announcement.  The agency to which the person applies will process the application and evaluate the suitability of the applicant, as appropriate.
