HOW YOU WILL BE EVALUATED:

Once the application process is complete, a review of the resume and supporting documentation will be made and compared against your responses to the assessment questionnaire to determine if you are qualified for this job.  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 eligibility.  Category rating procedures will be used to rate and rank candidates.  The category assignment is a measure of the degree to which your background matches the competencies required for this position.  Qualified candidates will be ranked into one of three categories:  Best Qualified, Well Qualified or Qualified.

The Category Rating Process does not add veterans' preference points 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 percent must be listed in the highest quality category (except in the case of scientific or professional positions at the GS-9 level or higher). 

Your qualifications will be evaluated on the following competencies (knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics).  You do not have to respond to the KSAs separately but your resume should contain sufficient information to demonstrate possession of the KSAs.
