I've been a GS employee for a few years now and I'm currently applying to positions for a promotion. For one position that's two grades up, I applied to it both under the US citizen and Schedule A hiring authorities, but HR came back and said I wasn't qualified because I didn't meet the TIG requirement.

It might just be because I haven't had enough caffeine today, but I can't find any references that clearly state TIG requirements don't apply to US Citizen or Schedule A hiring authorities. Is there anything I can send to HR, or am I actually out of luck?

Even if you are applying as a US citizen you still need to meet the TIG, or more accurately, the relevant experience equal to the next lowest grade. If your only relevant experience is with the gov't and that was at a level 2 grades lower than what you're applying for, then you don't meet the requirements.

Schedule A doesn’t allow you to skip grades.

In order to jump 2 grades you need a few things...

1 say you are a 5 ot 7 and you just completed a PhD you can jump to an 11. Simple larly if you weee a 5 and got a masters you can jump to 9

2 if you have outside govt experience equivalent to the grade below can qualify you but you need to apply under a US citizen.

I've got 10+ years of private sector experience doing this work at levels higher than this particular position, all spelled out in my resume.

I applied under both US Citizen and Schedule A.

When I got into my current position a few years ago under Schedule A, there was documentation saying TIG didn't apply to Schedule A.

Was that documentation incorrect? I can't find it anymore.

Disregarding the Schedule A thing, is there documentation that says TIG doesn't apply to US Citizen postings? Not experience, but specifically the TIG requirement.

When I contacted the HR Specialist about Schedule A, they didn't know about the exemption and refuse not to refer your application.


Yes, this announcement was open to Feds, US Citizens, and Schedule A.

From the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR):

PART 300—EMPLOYMENT (GENERAL)
Subpart F—TIME-IN-GRADE RESTRICTIONS
§300.603 Coverage.

(a) Coverage. This subpart applies to advancement to a General Schedule position in the competitive service by any individual who within the previous 52 weeks held a General Schedule position under nontemporary appointment in the competitive or excepted service in the executive branch, unless excluded by paragraph (b) of this section.

(b) Exclusions. The following actions may be taken without regard to this subpart but must be consistent with all other applicable requirements, such as qualification standards:

(1) Appointment based on selection from a competitive examination register of eligibles or under a direct hire authority.


This is a simple excerpt from the CFR, I did not post the whole thing because the exclusion at (b)(1) answers your question. No, TIG rules do not apply to selections from US Citizen announcements (AKA competitive examination register of eligibles) even if the person is a current fed.
