Details And Temporary Promotions In DCIPS

Disclaimer:
DCIPS replaces CIPMS. Until all references can be updated, both terms may appear and are considered interchangeable.

DCIPS uses 180 days verses 120 days to determine when an action has to be competitive for both Temporary Promotion or Detail.


Temporary Promotion

  1. Temporary Promotion within a DCIPS Grade Band.

    1. 180 days or less: May be a non-competitive action to include a temporary promotion from a non-supervisory to a supervisory position.

    2. Beyond 180 days: Competitive procedures apply unless under Grade Band Promotion provisions.

    3. Applying Grade Band Promotion Provisions: Temporary promotions can be non-competitive beyond 180 days IF its within the same grade band, employee's current line of work, and within the scope of the same servicing CPAC. Current line of work should be interpreted as generally within the same occupational series and specialty and the employee must meet the KSA requirements for the position. Management cannot use the Grade Band Promotion provision to promote (temporarily or permanently) from a non-supervisory to a supervisory position or between career paths.


  2. Temporary Promotion to a higher grade outside the DCIPS Grade Band.

    1. 180 days or less: May be a non-competitive action to include temporary promotions from non-supervisory to supervisory position.

    2. Beyond 180 days. Competitive procedures apply to temporary promotions of more than 180 days to higher graded positions outside the grade band.


    Qualifications: In order to be temporarily or permanently promoted, the employee must meet the qualification requirements for the position as outlined in the qualification standard for the position.

    Temporary Promotions Made Permanent. A temporary promotion may be made permanent without further competition provided the temporary promotion was originally under competitive procedures and the fact that it might lead to a permanent promotion was made known to all potential candidates.

    Temporary Promotions/Appointments between DCIPS and the Competitive Service. DoD has had a Personnel Interchange Agreement with the Office of Personnel Management permitting movement between DCIPS and the Competitive Service. An exception, however, is the movement, on a temporary basis, between the two systems. There are no automatic return rights/mechanisms. The acceptance of a temporary promotion/position in another personnel system, like the competitive service, terminates status with the original system. An employee would have to reapply/recompete to return.

    Details

    1. Detail at the same, lower or higher grade within a DCIPS Grade Band.

      1. 180 days or less: May be a non-competitive action to include a temporary detail from a non-supervisory to a supervisory position.

      2. Beyond 180 days: Competitive proceduers apply unless under Grade Band Promotion provisions.

      3. Applying Grade Band Promotion Provisions: Details can be non-competitive beyond 180 days IF its within the same grade band, employee's current link of work, and within the scope of the same servicing CPAC. Current line of work should be interpreted as generally within the same occupational series and specialty.


      Detail to a higher grade outside the DCIPS Grade Band

      1. 180 days or less: Can be a non-competitive action to include a temporary detail from a non-supervisory to a supervisory position.

      2. Beyond 180 days: Competitive proceduers apply.

      Details Following Temporary Promotion. There is no regulatory bar to a non-competitive detail following a non-competitive temporary promotion in DCIPS. NOTE: Competitive procedures would apply when an activity wants to immediately temporarily detail an employee to a higher graded position, outside the grade band or line of work, following a temporary promotion. Key element of this action is the duration i.e, two consecutive temporary actions which go beyond the 180 days. Any further temporary promotion (beyond 180 days) would have to be competitive, however, unless based on the noncompetitive provisions of the DCIPS grade band provisions.

      Details between DCIPS and Competitive Service Details between DCIPS and the Competitive Service must be completed in 120-day increments and in accordance with title 5 regulations. Details between DCIPS and other HR systems are possible because the position of record remains in the "parent" system.
