An office within 50 miles has received approval to fill a career PTF Clerk vacancy. Since the office does not currently have a PSE on the rolls, only PTFs/PSEs within 50 miles of the vacancy are eligible for this position. Positions will be awarded by current installation relative standing. If necessary to resolve a tie in seniority, the criteria outlined in Article 37.2.D.4 will be applied.

If you choose to preference and your relative standing on the rolls is senior to other PTFs/PSEs, you will be converted to career.


If selected for this vacancy, and you are not currently window qualified, you will have an opportunity to qualify. Once you pass window qualifications, you will be placed into the vacancy. If you fail window qualifications, you will remain in your current PSE assignment.


There are no relocation benefits or costs payable. You will start a new period of seniority. You may start a new probationary period.


Failure to return a 1717-A form will be considered a waiver of conversion opportunity. It is not a waiver for future conversion opportunities.
