AUTHORITY

All Consultant or Expert appointments made using this form and these procedures are made under the general authority of 22 USC 2385-6 (Sec. 626(a), FAA of 1961, as amended) which authorizes the Agency to make such appointments under 5 USC 3109 which is implemented through 5 CFR 304. When a Consultant or Expert appointment for overseas assignment is requested, 22 USC 2385 and 2386 should be consulted for specific guidance.





INFORMATION:
 Typically in USAID, Consultants or Experts are hired under a one-year Intermittent Appointment with an intermittent work schedule and are often referred to as WAEs (When Actually Employed employees). Such Consultants or Experts may be “reappointed” annually, subject to availability of allocated workdays by M/Budget, if requested at least 30 days in advance of the current appointment termination date by submitting to M/HR/POD a new form AID 4-483 (7-99) and SF 52 with a copy of the current appointment documentation. In no case may an employee under an Intermittent Appointment work or be compensated for more than 130 days or 1,040 hours of work within the one year (365 day) period from the date of appointment.

 A Temporary Appointment must be used for any other work schedule, i.e., seasonal, part-time or full-time, and the regulations concerning appointment duration and extensions are more complex. Requesting Officials and AMS Officers are advised to consult with M/HR/POD prior to requesting a Temporary Appointment of a Consultant or Expert.



 There are only “Consultants” or “Experts,” there are no “Expert Consultants.” Definitions of each can be found in 5 CFR 304.102.
