Department of Defense


The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

Good morning All. I have been trying to find the answer to this question and no one seems to know the answer. I currently hold a GS-5 position, however all the duties I have are more of a GS-7/8. My immediate supervisors have asked for a bump in GS for me and were told that it would require a PD change and if that happens they would need to post the job announcement again and I can't be guaranteed I would get the position.

Can someone tell me if this is true or is there a way that my PD and GS scale can be changed while I am still in the seat. I appreciate all the help in advance.

Yes it's true, usually they will show the new position in USAjobs for 3 to 4 days before it disappears. The only people who can get a promotion to another GS grade without applying to a new job are those in a developmental, intern, or recent graduate program, where their PD already supports the different grades.
