I'm external but covered under multiple special hiring authorities. CPS Vet. >30%, wife is 100% P&T Vet. March 9th is the same day I got my email. I would imagine that you are already fully qualified for position and there is no reason to administer the ROSA exam to you since you are coming in at the GS-9 level as a transfer. My guess is you would be ranked above even a CPS vet who does well on the initial assessments.

If you and I were competing for one position, you would beat me out especially being a current employee and having the same preference. Luckily for the only city where I will accept a position (I have no ability or desire to move)there are 18 openings.

Good luck.


Yes I agree. I rushed through the writing part cause I knew I would be pressed for time then had 5 minutes left at the end and couldn't go back and review my other answers :|


I finished it with 18 seconds to spare :P

From looking around the forums, some say a week or so, others say they never received official results and were even hired.

Usually 2-3 months after you take the test. Apply and forget.

Depends on the hiring schedule.

Also in how long the contractor takes to grade them.

Without divulging the content of the exam, it was the last section you took. The 25 minute timed portion.

I’m not sure if the RA assessment is the same as the RO assessment, so .... yeah. Also, we aren’t allowed to give specifics as to what is on the assessments. All we can do is tell you to take your time and read the directions.

Internal candidates generally don’t have to take the ROSA.

At least they didn’t use to. I hadn’t heard it changed

Internals still do not have to test unless we apply on an external recruitment. I applied on both and yes I had to retake that assessment again. The assessment is pretty easy if you ask me, but on another note, I have received 3 interview invites from the various locations I applied to. Hopefully all goes well and I get selected or at least one of those locations.

Good Luck everyone!

I'm just curious, why go down two grades? Will it help you break into (or through) GS 12? Is GS 11 about the furthest that you could go as an auditor for the Tax & Trade Board?

Because that’s the entry positions. 7 or 9.

As he’s internal he’ll have pay retention. So he won’t loose money.

Since this is a voluntary transfer to a lower grade in another position, he won't lose money if his pay is the same or less than a (GS-09 step 10) at the POD where he's hired as an RO. If for example, he's a GS-11, step 10 as an Auditor for TTB, he will be placed at the highest step possible as an entry-level RO: GS-09 step 10, so he will actually be making less money. Pay retention can't be more than step 10 at the grade you are going to if it is a voluntary transfer.

On the other hand, if he's a GS-11 step 1 through 5 at TTB, he might even get more money for going down in grade because they place him at the step equal to or immediately more than his pay as a GS-11 if it's between the 10 steps of the GS-09 of his POD.

In some instances, there is pay retention of 100% to a lower grade if it was a Management decision to transfer the employee through no fault of his own.

What about someone in my situation? I’m seeing responses to questions for someone who applied internal. What about someone who applies external, but from another federal agency like SSA, VHA/VBA, TSA, etc.? If someone like myself who is a GS-7 (soon to be 9) applied to both the 7 and 9 positions, and were offered the 7 just after being promoted to a 9, will they also qualify for pay retention, or are people like this just out of luck. I ask this, because I myself work for another federal agency, and while I applied to both the 7 and 9, I can very well be offered the position at the GS 7, and knowing that within a few weeks from now I’m due for a promotion to GS 9.

I am currently an RO and I transferred in from another agency. I was matched at the same grade and step as the agency I left upon being hired . I’m not sure how it would work for you since you wouldn’t have a year time in grade at a 9 but I hope this helps some what .

You must have been at the GS-09 at least 90 days for you to get the pay retention per the OPM "Maximum payable rate rule" that I posted above. It doesn't matter what agency you are coming from, as long as it is a federal agency. Here is the excerpt:

(The highest previous rate must be a rate of basic pay received by an employee while serving-

"On a regular tour of duty under an appointment not limited to 90 days or less; or
For a continuous period of not less than 90 days under one or more appointments without a break in service.")

So, let's say that you get the GS-07 as an RO. You will only get the same pay at the step you are right now, (as MAK94 posted was his experience on the previous post). So, for example, if you are a GS-07 step 1, you will be a GS-07 step 1 as an RO for 1 year.

If you become a GS-09 RO, then it worked out well for you.

Per the OPM, no one is forcing you to leave the job where you are at, in which you are going to get a promotion to a GS-09 soon, to become a GS-07 at another position. It is your choice, it is a gamble on your part. And this applies to Dept. of Treasury employees and other Federal Agency employees.

If you get the GS-07, even if you lose on the GS-09 promotion, it may pay off for you in the future if you are at a position where the promotion potential is lower than the RO.

Decisions/Choices...

I applied to another IRS position a year and a half ago as a GS 7 and as a 9. I was more than fully qualified for the 9. After a short interview, I was offered the 7. I asked about the 9. The interviewer looked over my information, and agreed, I was qualified, and promptly offered me the 9. Apparently there were separate folders for my application at each grade. When in doubt, ask.

Pay retention can't be more than step 10 at the grade you are going to if it is a voluntary transfer.

On the other hand, if he's a GS-11 step 1 through 5 at TTB, he might even get more money for going down in grade because they place him at the step equal to or immediately more than his pay as a GS-11 if it's between the 10 steps of the GS-09 of his POD.

In some instances, there is pay retention of 100% to a lower grade if it was a Management decision to transfer the employee through no fault of his own.

What about someone in my situation? I’m seeing responses to questions for someone who applied internal. What about someone who applies external, but from another federal agency like SSA, VHA/VBA, TSA, etc.? If someone like myself who is a GS-7 (soon to be 9) applied to both the 7 and 9 positions, and were offered the 7 just after being promoted to a 9, will they also qualify for pay retention, or are people like this just out of luck. I ask this, because I myself work for another federal agency, and while I applied to both the 7 and 9, I can very well be offered the position at the GS 7, and knowing that within a few weeks from now I’m due for a promotion to GS 9.


I applied to another IRS position a year and a half ago as a GS 7 and as a 9. I was more than fully qualified for the 9. After a short interview, I was offered the 7. I asked about the 9. The interviewer looked over my information, and agreed, I was qualified, and promptly offered me the 9. Apparently there were separate folders for my application at each grade. When in doubt, ask.


Thanks, I will.
