POLICY GUIDANCE MEMORANDUM #31 - Procedures for Regularizing Illegal Appointments

As part of the Department’s ongoing effort to ensure the integrity of merit system principles (§5 USC 2301(b)) and to prevent the appearance of, or violation of any of the prohibited personnel practices (§5 USC 2302 (b)), this policy guidance establishes a uniform process for managing cases that result in illegal or erroneous appointments and requires priority placement and/or priority consideration for veterans’ preference eligibles and/or non-veterans’ preference applicants under both Delegated Examining and Merit Promotion selection cases.
