If I am voluntarily quitting the federal gov't
what type of notice am I required by law to give?
Is 2 weeks required?

You could resign tomorrow!

Saiding that - it's nice for management to receive 2 weeks notice so that you could train your temporary replacement.

There is really no law about this one. You can quit on five minutes notice if you want to at most agencies.

Two weeks would be courteous, however, and allow for smoother "outprocessing".

Agree fully with Kivi and would add that you may end up 'burning bridges' if you leave without giving adequate advanced notice.

Standard practice in the private sector is a minimum of 2 weeks notice, more depending on your length of employment and position.

I gave my last office 2 week notice. I was the only system administrator and controlled the entire office budget and purchasing. My boss went of leave for 2 weeks and nobody cared about finding out the passwords or what I did until my last day. They didn't think I was going I guess.

TOO BAD, SO SAD.

anytime the government can immediately terminate your employment (urinalysis failure, assault and battery, etc.) you work in a situation where there is no legal obligation to give two weeks notice.
If they can fire you, you can quit them. But if you hope to work for the feds again, two weeks notice is preferred, by far.
Most places in private industry will have you leave immediately under guard if you present two weeks notice. Most private employers know that you know enough to really give them months of delayed grief if they let you stay once they know you no longer need or want the job.
