VA (Department of Veterans Affairs)

The United States has the most comprehensive system of assistance for veterans of any nation in the world. This benefits system traces its roots back to 1636, when the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony were at war with the Pequot Indians. The Pilgrims passed a law which stated that disabled soldiers would be supported by the colony. The establishment of the Veterans Administration came in 1930 when Congress authorized the President to "consolidate and coordinate Government activities affecting war veterans."

This forum also includes the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

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

I have accepted a tentative offer for a position that will require relocation. HR wanted a start date of x. Hiring manager stated they believe credentialing will take longer than that. Discussed with current manager, came to an agreement for a start date of y. Informed manager officially of this, cc'ing new manager. New facility said nothing. Reached out to new manager to confirm anticipated start date. No response.

How does one plan for a relocation without any information about the timeline from tentative to firm offer, and why exactly does credentialing need to happen again if an individual passed muster once already? It makes me nervous to be planning all these departures including moving my family without more confirmatory information. How does this process typically work?

Note that I also emailed the HR of the hiring facility for general information, noting in the email that I understand they cannot promise employment until the onboarding is completed. Still no answer. Do I call them? How long does one wait before following up without being a nuisance?

I guess I am also wondering under what circumstances a TO doesn't become an FO assuming the credentials and background are the same, nobody lied on the application, and the security clearance level is the same. All this ambiguity and lack of feedback when I have to plan for a relocation is stressful.

I don't understand the line about nobody lied on the application, but the way I've seen things work is that your new agency's HR will coordinate with your current HR for the hand-off. Once they've talked you will typically be offered a choice of EOD's.

This is assuming you are a current fed.

It sounds like you only have a TO, which is not an FO and will not be until the EOD has been worked out.
