    NOTE: The grade level listed in this announcement (GS-14) indicates the grade level that will be offered in future vacancy announcements using this assessment process.


    The purpose of this announcement is to solicit applications for the Supervisory Aviation Enforcement Agent (SAEA) (formerly known as the Supervisory Air Interdiction Officer - SAIO) Competency-Based Assessments for Promotion and to provide applicants the method for completing the required SAEA (formerly the SAIO) Career Experience Inventory (CEI) element of the assessments. Completion of the assessments (including the CEI) is required before you can apply for promotion to an SAEA position covered by this assessment process.

    The change from Supervisory Air Interdiction Officer (SAIO) to Supervisory Aviation Enforcement Agent (SAEA) was in name only. The SAIO assessments are now called the SAEA assessments. If you have prior SAIO scores, they are now SAEA scores and will used for filling SAEA vacancies should you decide not to retake the assessments.
