Question Re-publication/Re-posting of Vacant Position

Lei created the topic: Re-publication/Re-posting of Vacant Position
Good day.

This is just to clarify Sec. 29 of the ORA-OHRA, which states that, " The publication of a particular vacant position shall be valid until filled but not to extend beyond nine (9) months reckoned from the date the vacant position was published. Should no appointment be issued, within the nine (9) month period, the agency has to cause the re-publication of of the vacant position."

1. If the original publication has caused initial processing of papers and due to agency's fault, the processing was delayed and the 9 month period occured, but there are qualified applicants that maybe appointed, is the re-publication still required or the processing maybe continued?

2. During the re-publication, no one submitted application. Can the evaluation continue using the evaluation which was started during the original publication? Or Can the agency re-publish again the vacancy?

3. During re-publication, a lone applicant signified interest. Can the agency invite applicants which did not submit requirements even the publication specifically set a deadline?

Dear Ms. Lei:

As to your first and second questions, the rule is clear that if there is no appointment issued for the subject position within nine months after publication, the said position is required to be re-published. As to whether the result of the evaluation made on the applications from the original publication can still be used, you have to refer to your agency's Merit Selection Plan on this.

As to your last question, the appointing authority has the discretion to extend the deadline of submission of applications for a vacant position.

We hope that we have enlightened you on this matter.

Action Officer 31
