Senator Jon Tester’s  Competitive Service Act would allow federal agencies to review and select job candidates from other federal agencies’ ‘best qualified list’ of applicants.

“My Competitive Service Act saves taxpayers money, makes government more efficient, and strengthens our federal workforce.  Eliminating hurdles so qualified workers can get jobs in public service is the kind of common sense legislation that we need more of back in Washington.”

The bill will allow applicants who have already undergone a competitive assessment process to be eligible for hiring across multiple federal agencies. Currently, agencies that have similar hiring needs cannot share applicant information with one another.

Tester’s Competitive Service Act is supported by Partnership for Public Service and the Federal Managers Association, as well as the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association, and the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration.
