Temporary promotions


Q. How is it determined who is best qualified for a temporary promotion when there is more than one candidate? Does seniority at the next lower grade come into play at all? Should there be an interview process when several candidates are interested? Who decides who is the best qualified when there is more than one applicant since there is no application process?

A. You need to ask your agency personnel office for the criteria selecting officials are expected to use when making a decision.
