I’ve only been with working for the government for 3 months. I qualify for the GS13 position. Can I apply for it?

Depends. Is the 13 being announced to the public or as a competitive promotion? If it's open to the public there's no TIG requirement and you qualify for it. If it's only as a competitive promotion, then you don't meet the TIG requirement and don't qualify. you would have to wait a year, get promoted to a 12, then wait another year to qualify for a 13.

You can apply for whatever you want, but if you don't qualify for it then you're going to get weeded out during the referral process.

And it may be "the same job" but the 13 likely carries more responsibility with it, making it not the same job.

TIG still applies even if it open to the public. On paper, IF YOU HAVE QUALIFYING NON-GOVT EXPERIENCE, then you should be eligible for the position. In reality, since you are currently a Fed, HR is going to see that and say you don't have TIG. Good luck fighting it.

My understanding is that TIG doesn’t apply to positions open to the general public and only to merit promotions. I’m sure one of the HR gurus on here can weigh in

It's experience outside the federal government that counts if open to the public and only have federal experience at the 11 level when reaching for a 13 (in other words trying to skip grades). It doesn't matter if youre doing 12 work while in that 11 as it doesn't prove TIG.

However, any experience counts (open or status) if you previously held a 12 or higher (with the experience they're looking for), but currently hold the 11.

I know shady stuff goes on sometimes, but having gone through this, this is my understanding of the OPM rules.

That’s correct. If it’s open to the public you still have to meet the education and specialized experience requirements, but not the 52 week TIG requirement.
