had this topic originally in the wrong topic location so moved it here.

I am a GS12 step 6 (permanent) that was offered a job in a different command. The position is a GS12 permanent reassignment - different job series. I had planned on trying to negotiate a step increase but CPAC sent me the offer letter and it was a GS12 step 9, I called and confirmed it was correct with CPAC before formally accepting and was told it was correct. During the interview process, promotion potential/opportunities were discussed, I have held GS13 details in the past so it was a known point that I was looking for better financial positioning, so I was under the impression that is why I had a few step increases offered. SF50 came today and it showed the reassignment and it was still a step 6, emailed CPAC and was told the step 9 was a mistake and I'm stuck as a 6.

I accepted this offer as a step 9 since it was the best option of the others that I was working. Specifically, I backed out of another federal job interview processes and a non-government interview process that would have offered better options than the current step 6. Additionally, I was offered another federal interview that I turned down two weeks ago since I was getting ready to start this new position. I am honestly not sure if I would have accepted this job as a step 6, I may have worked my other options and seen how they panned out, pretty big hit to the face considering it was roughly a $7500 a year pay increase I thought I had.

I have not replied to CPACs email yet but I am not sure if I can negotiate something at this point? Am I screwed?

Not likely to get anything, step 6 is appropriate. No negotiations for a lateral move.
The excuse of, "I read it on FederalSoup..." won't work. Please do your due diligence.
