MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION
SUBJECT: Wounded Warrior Appointment Authorities, Individuals With Disabilities Appointment, Schedule A 213.3102 (u)

  1. There are several recruitment strategies and appointment authorities that may be used to employ our Wounded Warriors as Department of Army Civilians, including the Veterans Recruitment Authority, Veterans' Employment Opportunity Act, and the Disabled Veterans' Appointment. Another hiring flexibility that should be considered is the Individuals With Disabilities Appointment. This excepted appointment authority does not require public notice and it is an exception to Priority Placement Program and Inter-Agency Career Transition Program clearance requirements. Commands may accept, as proof of an individual's severe physical disability, records or statements issued by a licensed medical professional certified by a state to practice medicine, a state or private vocational rehabilitation specialist, or a Federal or state agency that provides disability benefits. A command may accept certification of job readiness from any of these entities. After two years of satisfactory service, these individuals may be converted to permanent appointments

  2. My point of contact for this issue is Mr. Steve Lewis, telephone (703) 325-6973, email steven.w.lewis@us.army.mil.
