Career Transition Assistance Plans (Ctap) For Local Surplus And Displaced Employees

Presidential memorandum dated September 12, 1995 entitled Career Transition Assistance for Federal Employees sets policy by the U.S. Government to provide services to help surplus and displaced Federal employees affected by downsizing and restructuring to take charge of their own careers and find other job offers either within the Federal Government or in the private sector. When filling a vacancy, an agency must select an employee eligible under these regulations before selecting any other candidate from within or outside the agency. unless the agency can show that another employee would otherwise be separated by reduction in force (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapter 418).
