How is foreign education evaluated for federal jobs? Persons appointed under these agreements are not subject to parole under 5 CFR Part 315, Subdivision H, but acquire public service status upon appointment. Appointees are subject to the trial period in 5 CFR Part 315, Sub-Part I, but appropriate service in the other benefit system may be considered when determining the applicability of the trial period and the eligible benefit at the end of the trial period. There are two classes of non-executive positions in the federal government: 1) those in the competitive public service, and 2) those in out-of-service. Competitive service positions are subject to civil service laws passed by Congress. Excluded services are not subject to the same appointment procedures as the competing service. This agreement includes staff assigned to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). . . .
