Term Definition
New Appointees

Includes not only individuals when first appointed to Government service but also individuals appointed after a break in service except that employees separated as a result of reduction-in-force or transfer of function may be treated as transferees instead of new appointees. New appointees do not include individuals who transfer from one Federal Government personnel system to another Federal Government personnel system where there is no break in service (6 FAM-111.3) (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapters 467, 522, 523, 524, and 525). See 5 CFR Sec. 531.202 (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapter 471).
