OPM drafts new hiring rules for spouses
OPM drafts new hiring rules for spouses

Some military spouses are a step closer to being able take advantage of a new quicker, noncompetitive hiring authority to get jobs in the federal government.

Moving more swiftly than usual, the Office of Personnel Management has drafted new rules to implement an executive order allowing managers in all federal agencies to hire qualified military spouses without putting them through the normal competitive hiring process.

The proposed rules will be published in the Dec. 5 Federal Register and are already available online.

President Bush signed the executive order Sept. 25, and it applies to military spouses whose service members are incapacitated or killed, as well as those relocating on permanent change-of-station orders.

The proposed regulation would be retroactive for spouses who have relocated with their service member within one year before the regulation becomes effective.
