What about a probationary period?
A. Depending on the type of appointment, probationary
periods typically last up to two years. Schedule A
candidates should be held to the same performance
standards as all other employees. Once the employee’s
accommodation needs have been met, if any exist, then
the agency should feel free to expect no more or less
from a Schedule A employee than it would from any
other employee. Further, once the probationary period
has been successfully completed, employees should be
converted to permanent competitive status.

What is the converted to permanent competitive status process? The two year trial period has come and gone months ago. Prior questions to management and HR resulted in answers of little if any value.

HR processes a SF52 and then you end up with an SF50 in your OPF. Not a big issue.

When does HR processes a SF52? After 2 years? After 2 years and 3 months? After 3 years? To the best of my knowledge I cannot pursue competitive status roles until HR processes a SF52? Thank you.

Should be done upon completion of the probationary period. You need to check with HR after looking at your eOPF an verifying it isn't in there.

You need ot ask HR to process it after you verify one does not exist in your eOPF.

Here is the CFR section regarding conversion to perm; key word is "may".

Noncompetitive conversion to the competitive service. (i) An agency may noncompetitively convert to the competitive service an employee who has completed 2 years of satisfactory service under this authority in accordance with the provisions of Executive Order 12125, as amended by Executive Order 13124, and §315.709 of this chapter, except as provided in paragraph (u)(6)(ii) of this section.

For reference, converted to the competitive service at 2 years, 3 months per online HR system. The SF-50 is expected in another 1-2 pay periods. Not the most efficient HR.

Regarding "Not the most efficient HR." I can't speak for all agencies, but at my agency management is responsible for submitting the conversion request, not HR. In my agency, HR does not make decisions; decisions are made by management and we simply process the request. This is not just for conversions, but for almost all actions.

Management indicated in an email the conversion request was submitted to HR 2 months prior. The agency HR is notorious for either not answering questions or answering questions only after a two month delay.

I could take a guess at which agency, but won't. From a customer service perspective: FAIL!
