c) An exchange contract may be terminated by any party under the terms of the agreement. (a) In accordance with 5 CFR 6.7, OPM and any agency with an executive staff system essentially equivalent to the main executive service (SES) may enter into, in accordance with the legislative and regulatory authorities, an agreement providing for the transport of persons between the SES and the other system. The agreement defines the status and duration that the interested parties acquire in the movement. An agency cannot designate a worker under an exchange contract in a competitive manner under the conditions listed below. Each exchange agreement sets these conditions. The conditions are not in the federal regulation code. Individuals who do not qualify to be appointed under the exchange contract may apply for a position in competition review or other appointment procedures, provided the person meets all applicable eligibility requirements. Persons appointed under these agreements are not subject to a trial period under Part 5 CFR, Part 315, Part H, but acquire public service status upon order. Officers are subject to the monitoring or management sample in Part 315 CFR 5, Part I, but appropriate service in the other benefit system may be considered to determine the applicability of the trial period and eligible performance until the end of the trial period. Currently, in an organization that is the subject of an exchange agreement or has been unintentionally separated from an organization (some agreements do not cover all positions in the other benefit system); AND Competition Review is the traditional method of filling competitive service positions and requires compliance with Title 5 competition control requirements. OPM may, by appointment, delegate to an agency the power to control all its competing positions (except administrative judges).
Vacancies filled as part of the competition review process are public. Individuals who are called upon to a competitive service under the exchange agreements benefit from a professional or professional vocation, depending on whether they are serving three years of service for a professional activity or are exempt from it in accordance with 5 CFR 315.201 (c).
