Hi.

On a recent interview, the selecting official who also served as an interview panel member said, “PCS Allowance is currently not authorized but you may request a waiver and it will be considered”

So, if I were to receive a TO, would this be an appropriate reply?
“I accept this job offer.
I would like to request a waiver to receive Relocation Allowance or Relocation Incentive.”


For the record, I would absolutely take the job if no allowance or incentive were given, I guess what I’m asking is, is the TO the appropriate time and place to request a waiver?
I am mainly interested in HHG and HHT and POV allowances but I phrase my request for waiver to indicate flexibility and willingness to accept anything offered.

Thanks in advance for your experience/input.

Adding: The actual job announcement said this:
Relocation expenses reimbursed
Yes Relocation costs may be paid if the selecting official determines the relocation is in the best interests of the government.

It may be authorized.

Incentive is do they really like you. When you get aTZo you ask if this includes any relocation.
