Military Spouse Authority

Military Spouse Non-competitive Appointing Authority allows agencies to appoint certain military spouses without using traditional competitive examining procedures.  Agencies can choose to use this authority when filling competitive service positions on a temporary, term, or permanent basis.  The authority does not entitle spouses to an appointment over any other applicant. 

The authority allows agencies to appoint the spouse of a member of the armed forces on active duty, the spouse of a 100 percent disabled member of the armed forces, or the spouse of a deceased member of the armed forces.
