Policy Guide - Voluntary Transfer - Non-Competitive

In Policy 3.05, one of the pay practices described is the Voluntary Transfer - Non-Competitive. Policy 2.10 refers to this practice in citing exceptions to normal recruitment practices. Two points need further emphasis:

  • A non-competitive transfer should be an unusual event. Most vacancies should be filled through posting and the competitive process.
  • Non-competitive voluntary transfers are intended for employees that move to another position in the same pay band within an agency , not between agencies.
