Is there a streamlined staffing process to hire people with disabilities?

The excepted hiring authorities referenced in question 18 create a streamlined process to hire people with disabilities. Using these excepted hiring authorities eliminates the requirement for competition which may be very time-consuming. The excepted hiring authorities may require that the disabled person have a certification from a State vocational rehabilitation agency or the Veterans Administration.

Once again, consult your human resources office to ensure that you use the best hiring strategy for your specific vacancy.
