The FBI must ensure our workforce is fully staffed to continue protecting our nation and combating crime.  As a result, the FBI is committed to achieving FY 2014 hiring goals.  Effective, May 5, 2014, FBI employees will be precluded from moving to another position within the Bureau by means of promotion, reassignment or change to lower grade unless the new position is career enhancing (Headquarters to Field Offices or Field Offices to Headquarters) or offers a greater promotional potential than the position in which they are currently serving.

Management has the prerogative to select at any grade for which this position has been announced.

Identification of promotion potential in this announcement does not constitute a commitment or an obligation on the part of management to promote the employee selected at some future date. Promotion will depend upon administrative approval and the continuing need for an actual assignment and performance of higher-level duties.

The selectee will be required to serve a one-year probationary period for initial assignment to a supervisory position.

All selectees, with the exception of current FBI employees, will be required to serve a one-year probationary period.
