Saw this in the news... no idea when it will actually be coming to an agency near you:
Agencies will soon be able to hang on to certain term and temporary employees for longer.

In a proposed rule scheduled for publication Monday, the Office of Personnel Management said it will allow agencies to make term or temporary appointments for up to 10 years in order to staff certain projects.

Agencies will be allowed to appoint personnel to longer term or temporary appointments for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) occupations and for positions needed to launch, operate or close-out certain time-limited projects that are funded through specific appropriations or direction from Congress.
Recall that "term" employees are eligible for retirement benefits including FERS and TSP. However, I suppose that term and temp employees would still be among the first to go when budget cuts come around.
