Duties
Summary

This position is located in the Division of Risk Management Supervision, Policy Branch of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and provides support in the areas of planning and developing new and revised approaches to the examination and supervision of insured institutions.

This position is open to current FDIC permanent employees with competitive status eligibility.

The selectee will be given a temporary promotion if eligible. This temporary promotion may be terminated early or extended based on management’s needs; it cannot exceed 5 years nor can it be made permanent. If the duration of the temporary promotion is one year or less, the employee will be returned to a position that is comparable to his or her permanent position (i.e., same series, grade, and duty location) in the same or successor Division/Office. If, however, the temporary promotion exceeds one year (including extensions beyond one year of initial temporary promotion appointments of one year or less), and the position is in a different Division/Office from the employee’s permanent Division/Office, the employee will not be returned to his or her permanent position of record. Instead, the employee will be placed in a position comparable to his or her permanent position of record (at the same grade and pay) in the Division/Office and duty location where the temporary assignment is located. Since the extension of a temporary promotion beyond one (1) year will directly impact the employee’s return rights to his or her permanent Division/Office, the employee must concur in advance with any extension of the temporary promotion beyond one (1) year.

At the end of the temporary promotion, the employee’s basic pay will be set at the rate received prior to being temporarily promoted, regardless of length of the temporary promotion. Pay rate shall be increased to reflect pay increases (if any) received while temporarily promoted, as long as the resulting rate does not exceed the new range maximum.

Additional selections may be made from this vacancy announcement to fill identical vacancies that occur subsequent to this announcement.
