HOW YOU WILL BE EVALUATED:
For Competitive Applicants: If you meet the qualifications, you will be rated and ranked under Category Rating procedures. The category assignment is a measure of the degree in which your background matches the competencies required for this position. Candidates will be ranked into 3 categories: Best-Qualified; Highly-Qualified; and Qualified.
The Category Rating Process does not add veterans preference points or apply the rule of three, but protects the rights of veterans by placing them ahead of non-preference eligibles within each category. Preference eligibles who meet the minimum qualification requirements and who have a compensable service-connected disability of at least 10 per cent must be listed in the highest quality category (except in the case of scientific or professional positions at the GS-9 level or higher).
Qualified candidates will be assigned to a quality category. If, after reviewing your resume and or supporting documentation, a determination is made that you have inflated your qualifications and or experience, you may lose consideration for this position. Please follow all instructions carefully. Errors or omissions may affect your rating. All applicants' qualifications will be evaluated on the following competencies (knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics).
