The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program seeks eligible individuals for assessment and potential subsequent selection as Finalists to obtain appointments as Fellows in the Federal Government. Presidential Management Fellows are assigned to work in a broad range of areas including public policy and administration, domestic and international issues, information technology, acquisition, human resources, engineering, health and medical sciences, privacy, cybersecurity, financial management, and many other fields in support of public service programs.

A Finalist may be initially appointed as a Presidential Management Fellow (PMF; Fellow) to a GS-9, GS-11, or GS-12 grade level (or equivalent) and may potentially be promoted up to the GS-13 grade level (or equivalent) during their two-year fellowship. Finalists are not guaranteed a PMF appointment and positions/grade levels are dependent on agency needs.

Finalists selected for PMF appointments will be subject to specific position requirements, as defined by the appointing agency. These may include determination of duty station, salary, grade levels, promotion potential, security requirements, supervisory status, travel requirements and other conditions of employment. The salary listed in this announcement is for the GS-9, step 1 through GS-12, step 10, covering the Washington, DC, metro area, for 2017. Actual salary range for a particular PMF will vary based on the duty location and grade of the position.

Thoroughly review this announcement and the Become a PMF section, including system and browser requirements, on the PMF website at for more details.

The PMF Program is administered by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and is regulated by the Pathways Programs regulations in part 362 of Title 5, of the Code of Federal Regulations (5 CFR 362). Appointments are made in the excepted service under the Schedule D Hiring Authority.
