Frequently Asked Questions Qualifications

Are agencies required to use the Supervisory Qualification Guide when filling supervisory positions?

No.  While not mandatory, use of this Supervisory Qualification Guide is strongly recommended to be consistent with other leadership assessment tools such as those used in performance evaluation and development.  Ten (10) competencies listed in this Guide reflect those considered most important for successful performance of Federal supervisory work.  Candidates should possess proficiency or the potential to develop proficiency in these competencies prior to entry into a supervisory position.
