Limited Movement: Policy has been implemented wherein support employees entering a position through a competitive OR non-competitive action may be precluded from moving to another position within the Bureau by means of reassignment or change to lower grade for a minimum of 12 months. Probationary employees are precluded from being considered for all job opportunities until 12-months of their two-year probationary period has concluded. Probationary employees may be considered for competitive vacancies that are advertised within their respective division or field office after serving 90 days within the FBI. HRD will waive this limited movement policy for qualified employees, who have received an official notificaiton letter that their current position is being relocated to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama by 2021, so those employees can compete for a position elsewhere. Candidates will not be considered if currently on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP); a Letter of Requirement (LOR); or have failed a PIP or LOR and are currently awaiting the final action by HRD.        a. A Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) is a 90-day written developmental plan for an employee whose performance on one or more critical elements is rated "Unacceptable."        b. A Letter of Requirement (LOR) is issued when a supervisor identifies leave abuse and/or when frequent absences negatively impact operations of an office.

Employees returning from LEGAT assignments must advise the Staffing and Administrative Unit / International Operations Division for this position.On December 22, 2017, the President signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Current law provides the FBI with the authority to compensate employees for much of the tax burden caused by a transfer through the Relocation Income Tax Allowance (RITA) process. At this time, it is unclear whether this authority addresses the full impact of the recent change in the tax law.  GSA and DOJ are currently reviewing the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), including the RITA process, in an effort to identify ways to minimize the additional tax burden on transferring employees.  Candidates receiving a transfer of physical location, whether at the expense of the FBI or not, will be required to complete a one year commitment to the assignment, prior to moving to a new position at the FBI. The 12-month waiting period begins the day an employee reports for duty at the new location. Employees selected for positions at the GS-14 level or higher, as well as employees selected for positions where a transfer of location is required, will be processed through the name check program prior to being notified of their selection. Memorandum of Understanding: Work performed outside assigned duties (that would not normally be documented on a SF-50, i. e., back-up duties), has to be documented in detail by an immediate supervisor in order to receive full credit for amount of time worked in that position.

Probationary employees may be considered for competitive vacancies that are advertised within their respective division or field office after serving 90 days within the FBI. Candidates will not be considered if currently on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP); a Letter of Requirement (LOR); or have failed a PIP or LOR and are currently awaiting the final action by HRD.        a.

Current law provides the FBI with the authority to compensate employees for much of the tax burden caused by a transfer through the Relocation Income Tax Allowance (RITA) process. At this time, it is unclear whether this authority addresses the full impact of the recent change in the tax law.  GSA and DOJ are currently reviewing the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), including the RITA process, in an effort to identify ways to minimize the additional tax burden on transferring employees.  Candidates receiving a transfer of physical location, whether at the expense of the FBI or not, will be required to complete a one year commitment to the assignment, prior to moving to a new position at the FBI. The 12-month waiting period begins the day an employee reports for duty at the new location. Employees selected for positions where a transfer of location is required, will be processed through the name check program prior to being notified of their selection.

The candidates selected for this posting will serve in a detail capacity and will be eligible to receive Joint Duty Credit.  Upon completion of the assignment, the selectee will go through the reintegration program and will be reassigned to a position at FBIHQ.There should be no expectation of receiving a transfer  back to  the candidate’s home division regardless of whether there is a vacancy available.The National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) founded in 2003, and located in McLean, Virginia (VA), is a critical element of the Intelligence Community (IC), tasked with leading and integrating counterterrorism (CT) efforts through the development of terrorism analysis and the sharing of information with partners across the CT enterprise. NCTC Staff Operations Specialists are uniquely positioned to access both domestic and foreign CT information from multi-agency datasets. Additionally, NCTC provides strategic and targeting elements to help engage United States Government (USG) action and drive national CT activities and objectives. Staff Operations Specialists working at NCTC can participate in a diverse array of skill and career building experiences through NCTC's numerous Offices and Directories. The NCTC's Core Functions are detailed below:Threat Analysis:  The primary USG organization for analyzing and integrating both strategic and tactical intelligence collected domestically and internationally.Information Sharing:  NCTC coordinates and shares analysis across the IC and a wide range of customers, while additionally providing 24/7 CT situational awareness.Identity Management:  NCTC maintains the USG's database on Known or Suspected Terrorists (KSTs), including their goals, strategies, capabilities, and networks; and supports screening activities across the USG.FBI personnel interested in a JDA at NCTC should evaluate their strengths and weaknesses to determine and indicate their desired placement within the NCTC organization so as to request a specific assignment. This JDA is a 2-3 year assignment that allows FBI employees to gain and develop valuable counterterrorism knowledge and experience to help grow their skills and career with the FBI.  Prior experience working counterterrorism matters is not a requirement.  NCTC analysts are afforded numerous career development experiences to include writing, briefing, TDYs and unique NCTC training courses.Directorate of Intelligence (DI): The DI, the largest Directorate in the NCTC with eight geographically and functionally designated groups, focuses on the development of strategic analysis and warning products that are derived from a diverse array of intelligence sources to then be disseminated to a wide range of customers.Directorate of Identity Intelligence (DII): The DII’s mission is to discover, enhance, and share identity intelligence, including biometric, that advances the most complete and accurate identity picture to our partners in supporting CT analysts, and enabling successful screening to prevent terrorist activities from targeting U.S. interests. Additionally, they maintain the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE) system used by the USG in conjunction with the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC).  The DII also houses the Identity and Network Discovery Group, the tactical analysis component of NCTC, whose function involves performing tactical analysis to identify unknown terrorist threats to the Homeland and U.S. interests abroad, and provide targeting leads to operational USIC components, primarily the FBI.Selected candidates should not expect to be returned to their previous office.

Identification of promotion potential in this announcement does not constitute a commitment or an obligation on the part of management to promote the employee selected at some future date. Promotion will depend upon administrative approval and the continuing need for an actual assignment and performance of higher-level duties. Limited Movement: Policy has been implemented wherein support employees entering a position through a competitive OR non-competitive action may be precluded from moving to another position within the Bureau by means of reassignment or change to lower grade for a minimum of 12 months. Probationary employees are precluded from being considered for all job opportunities until 12-months of their two-year probationary period has concluded. Probationary employees may be considered for competitive vacancies that are advertised within their respective division or field office after serving 90 days within the FBI.  HRD will waive this limited movement policy for qualified employees, who have received an official notification letter that their current position is being relocated to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama by 2021, so those employees can compete for a position elsewhere.  Candidates will not be considered if currently on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP); a Letter of Requirement (LOR); or have failed a PIP or LOR and are currently awaiting the final action by HRD.        a. A Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) is a 90-day written developmental plan for an employee whose performance on one or more critical elements is rated "Unacceptable."        b. A Letter of Requirement (LOR) is issued when a supervisor identifies leave abuse and/or when frequent absences negatively impact operations of an office. Relocation expenses will be borne by the selectee, except FBI employees returning from LEGAT assignment. Employees returning from LEGAT assignments must advise the Staffing Unit, Administrative Unit, and the international Operations Unit of their application to apply. On December 22, 2017, the President signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This law may impact your transfer.  This legislation made previously non-taxed moving expense reimbursements taxable as of January 1, 2018.  Please see HR Link for a list of the FBI’s current understanding of the applicable tax changes.  However, this may change upon receipt of official guidance from GSA and DOJ. Current law provides the FBI with the authority to compensate employees for much of the tax burden caused by a transfer through the Relocation Income Tax Allowance (RITA) process. At this time, it is unclear whether this authority addresses the full impact of the recent change in the tax law.  GSA and DOJ are currently reviewing the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), including the RITA process, in an effort to identify ways to minimize the additional tax burden on transferring employees. Candidates receiving a transfer of physical location, whether at the expense of the FBI or not, will be required to complete a one year commitment to the assignment, prior to moving to a new position at the FBI. The 12-month waiting period begins the day an employee reports for duty at the new location. Employees selected for positions at the GS-14 level or higher, as well as employees selected for positions where a transfer of location is required, will be processed through the name check program prior to being notified of their selection.Memorandum of Understanding: Work performed outside assigned duties (that would not normally be documented on a SF-50, i. e., back-up duties), has to be documented in detail by an immediate supervisor in order to receive full credit for amount of time worked in that position.

Promotion will depend upon administrative approval and the continuing need for an actual assignment and performance of higher-level duties. Limited Movement: Policy has been implemented wherein support employees entering a position through a competitive OR non-competitive action may be precluded from moving to another position within the Bureau by means of reassignment or change to lower grade for a minimum of 12 months. Probationary employees are precluded from being considered for all job opportunities until 12-months of their two-year probationary period has concluded. Probationary employees may be considered for competitive vacancies that are advertised within their respective division or field office after serving 90 days within the FBI. HRD will waive this limited movement policy for qualified employees, who have received an official notification letter that their current position is being relocated to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama by 2021, so those employees can compete for a position elsewhere. Candidates will not be considered if currently on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP); a Letter of Requirement (LOR); or have failed a PIP or LOR and are currently awaiting the final action by HRD.a. A Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) is a 90-day written developmental plan for an employee whose performance on one or more critical elements is rated "Unacceptable."b.

Candidates receiving a transfer of physical location, whether at the expense of the FBI or not, will be required to complete a one year commitment to the assignment, prior to moving to a new position at the FBI.
