CLASP WAIVERS


CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The (Command Leadership and Staff Assignment) CLASP wavier is used to grant a wavier for dual-status technicians who are assigned to Full-Time Support positions during their IDT while working as a technician.

Per TPR 303: Federal Technicians in a command, leadership, or specific unit assignment require the Command, Leadership, and Staff Assignment Program (CLASP) memorandum.

TAG approved CLASP memorandums are auditable items for the HRO and must be archived beyond the actual period of the technician’s actual CLASP assignment.

  • The Federal Government employs permanent and temporary employees. Permanent employees are generally hired under a career-conditional appointment (Permanent - Career-Conditional Appointment). Normally this is the first career-type of appointment and the appointee must complete a 1-year probationary period and a total of 3 years continuous creditable service to attain a career appointment (Permanent - Career Appointment). Temporary appointments are defined as appointments expected to last for a specified period not to exceed 1 year (Temporary Appointment - Time limited not to exceed 1 year but could be less) or a specified period of time that is at least more than 1-year but not to exceed 4 years (Term Appointment - Time limited more than one year but not more than 4 years). Neither type of appointment is a permanent one, so they do not give the employee competitive/permanent status.
