Department of Defense

The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

I am a competitive service employee who is 6 months from becoming a career employee. I have been offered a promotion in the excepted service.

If I become an excepted service employee will this be a problem if I ever want to apply for another competitive service position?

You would be leaving the competitive service. Since you state that you are 6 mos from being career, I take that to mean that you are career-conditional. As such, you would have reinstatement eligibility for 3 years from your separation date. As such, if a status position was open for "reinstatement eligibles," you could apply for 3 years. Some excepted service agencies have interchange agreements, which means their employees can complete for status positions.
