The General Government Transition Pool (GGTP) assists displaced employees by matching them with general government job opportunities based on broad-based knowledge and skills. This allows employees access to positions where existing skills and experiences can be built upon with position-specific training.
The GGTP is available to:
Employees on the list may be considered for positions at the same or a lower salary range, if they satisfy the competencies and other position requirements. To participate, employees must complete a GGTP data sheet detailing their competencies.
When an employee accepts a permanent full-time, part-time, or project position, his or her name will be removed from the pool if they are hired into a permanent position at or above the range from which they were laid off from.
There are no appeal rights within the GGTP, and it is not available to higher education employees.
When a general government employer's certified pool contains eligible applicants other than layoff or internal promotional candidates, the employer must certify all GGTP candidates who satisfy the competencies and other position requirements.
The employer must consider the names of employees referred through the GGTP along with other certified names. However, the employer is not required to justify the non-selection of a GGTP candidate. If a GGTP candidate is selected, the employer may require a six-month transition review period.
