Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

Who may approve the payment of a recruitment or relocation incentive?

An authorized agency official who is at least one level higher than the employee’s supervisor must review and approve each determination to pay a recruitment or relocation incentive, unless there is no official at a higher level in the agency. See 5 CFR 575.107(b) and 575.207(b) for additional exceptions. We encourage agencies to delegate authority to approve incentives to the lowest level practicable to help respond more effectively to their staffing needs.
