Competition review is the traditional method of designating competitive service organizations and requires compliance with Title 5 competition audit requirements. OPM may, by appointment, delegate to an agency the power to control all its competing agencies (except administrative judges). Vacancies filled as part of the competition review process are public. An agency cannot designate a worker under an exchange contract in a competitive manner under the conditions listed below. Each exchange agreement sets these conditions. The conditions are not in the federal regulation code. Individuals who do not qualify to be appointed under the exchange contract may apply for a position in competition review or other appointment procedures, provided the person meets all applicable eligibility requirements. An exchange contract allows existing federal agents in the service to be candidates for job promotion in a competitive service. Persons appointed under these agreements are not subject to a trial period under Part 5 CFR, Part 315, Part H, but acquire public service status upon order. Officers are subject to the monitoring or management sample in Part 315 CFR 5, Part I, but appropriate service in the other benefit system may be considered to determine the applicability of the trial period and eligible performance until the end of the trial period. Individuals who are called upon to a competitive service under the exchange agreements benefit from a professional or professional vocation, depending on whether they are serving three years of service for a professional activity or are exempt from it in accordance with 5 CFR 315.201 (c).
