USAID’s Civil Service (CS) to Foreign Service (FS) Appointment Program provides the Agency with an additional recruitment mechanism for filling Foreign Service overseas positions that remain unfilled at the end of the annual assignment cycle. The Program also contributes to the Agency’s ability to quickly respond to overseas staffing emergencies. Through the policies and procedures established in this chapter, the Office of Human Resources, Foreign Service Personnel Division (OHR/FSP) will advertise a listing of pre-designated positions to USAID Career Civil Service employees who are qualified for and interested in a Non-Career, limited-term appointment to the Foreign Service (not to exceed five years).
