Special Circumstances

 
Hard to fill positions

The Cyber Excepted Service (CES) allows special hiring authority and flexible incentives to attract and retain highly qualified candidates when selected to fill “hard to fill” positions. Under special circumstances these candidates may be eligible for special pay, benefits and/or waivers to meet hiring goals. When qualified candidates apply and are selected these exceptions/waivers are evaluated and may be granted on a case-by-case basis.


Non-Competitive Hires

The CES will enhance the effectiveness of the Department’s cyber defensive and offensive mission by providing agility and flexibility during the recruitment, retention, and development of highly qualified cyber professionals. In partnership with the Principal Cyber Advisor (PCA), the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel & Readiness (USD(P&R)), and the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (USD(I)), the Office of the DoD CIO developed the first four policies for implementing this new personnel system.

In some cases, an applicant may be eligible for expedited non-competitive hire and direct contact between qualified applicants and recruiters is permitted. See: DoD Cyber Excepted Service (CES) – DoD Cyber Exchange for more information about CES policies and the personnel system.


Waivers and Military Retirement

When retiring from active duty, personnel interested in serving in the CES in positons deemed hard-to-fill may begin the application process six months prior by applying for a military retired pay waiver. If approved, as a civilian employee the former service member receives credit for military service in the computation of the FERS or CSRS benefit.

See Military Retired Pay (opm.gov) for more information.
