Hiring Authority

5 CFR 213.3102 (r) provides for excepted service time-limited appointments not to exceed 4 years. Employees hired under this authority count against the appropriate full time equivalent (FTE) ceiling.

Service under a 5 CFR 213.3102 (r) appointment confers no rights to further Federal employment in either the competitive or excepted service upon expiration of appointment. Interns/fellows may not be non-competitively converted to another appointment within the Federal Government after their appointment ends.
