Seasonal employees get competitive status

In August 2015, President Obama signed the Land Management Workforce Flexibility Act (LMWFA), which allows qualified individuals serving under time-limited appointments in a land management agency to compete for permanent positions in the competitive service. This has major implications for the National Park Service and its employees and also has the potential to be a great tool for NPS managers. 

The NPS encourages current employees interested in applying for positions to begin gathering the necessary SF-50’s needed to show eligibility under the Act. Current employees should access their electronic Official Personnel Folders (eOPF) to obtain the documents needed to determine eligibility under the Act.

ANPR is pleased to have supported this bill as well.
