I started with GSA in July 2011. I was brought in as a Direct Hire at GS-11. I had been a GS-14 with the Justice Department back in the early 90s as a Trial Lawyer, left the Gov't and am now back. I was not hired as an "attorney" with GSA. The work I have been doing since I began is the work being done by GS-13s and some 14s. I have substantial experience in the area within which I work and my supervisor & team leader are aware of my experience. I asked my supervisor a couple months ago if there is a process to request a grade increase before my 1st year is up and she suggested I come see her once I hit 6 months. I'll have 6 months in the middle of January. Does anyone know what avenue there may be for me to request a grade increase? I have heard the term "desk review" and some folks have suggested that I apply for higher grade positions as well. Although I anticipate an increase to a GS-12 in July, I am still performing work at a higher than GS-12 level. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks and have a safe, happy and healthy New Year!

The time to negotiate your salary/ step is before you begin working. Once you have accepted the position and are an active employee, time-in-grade applies for positions. If you were hired as a straight GS-11, there is no normal process to change it. If you say you are expecting a promotion to GS-12 in July, maybe you have applied for/ accepted for a career-ladder GS-11/12 position, and the supervisor may have some latitude as to effective date for such action. If you wanted a GS-12 (or 13, or 14) now,  then you needed to apply for those grades and only accept those graded offers. Now, as a GS-11, if you want a GS-12 (etc), start applying for those postings now, since you apparently have previous experience at higher levels. Good luck. RetirednHappy2011-12-30 13:22:45

The position advertised at a 9 and I asked for higher when I was offered the position. 6 months later, they agreed to bring me in as a direct at an 11. I believe the job is an 11/12 so when I hit 12, it stops there unless I move elsewhere?

Are you doing the duties in your PD?  If so, a desk review won't help since the positions was recently certified as correct.

If you are spending the majority of your time doing other duties, a desk review may or may not help.

If the duties are at a higher grade, they could be reassigned to someone else.

Another options, is to apply for a higher grade position based on your previous duties when you were a GS-14.

You can also network.  You can reassigned to your previous high grade.  Maybe another office needs you at the GS-14 level.
