    EPAP provides eligible family members with entry-level Foreign Service equivalent, full time position overseas in Political, Economics, Management, Public Diplomacy, Facilities Management, Financial Management, General Services, Human Resources, Information Management, Office Management, and Medical areas.  EPAP uses HR/RMA position descriptions (see www.state.gov/flo/epap for PDs). Specific description of duties may be requested from the respective regional bureau or posts.

    EPAP positions have portfolios that are similar to entry-level Foreign Service Generalist and Specialist positions.  The 2019 EPAP qualification standards and position descriptions (PDs) were created in consultation with HR/REE, HR/RMA, and other relevant HR offices.  For detailed PDs, please see www.state.gov/flo/epap or contact your regional bureau for more information. For a detailed description of the duties and responsibilities, the applicant should contact HRO at post.

    Please note that while EPAP positions have responsibilities that are similar to entry-level Foreign Service Generalist and Specialist positions, family members do not have the same level of accreditation as U.S. direct hire employees (who hold a diplomatic title). Rather, EFMs have derivative privileges and immunities from the sponsoring employee. Such status imposes a de facto limitation on what family members may do and how they may represent post.

    As is required for all Family Member Appointments (FMA), EPAP incumbents and supervisors will agree upon specific Work Requirement Statements (WRS, Form JF-57 EPR, Section III), within the first 45 days of employment at post. The WRS will confirm the duties and responsibilities as defined in the EPAP PD.
