Position requirements may be waived in exceptional circumstances. This section provides information and guidance on position and tenure waivers.
The Position Requirements and Tenure Waiver must be signed by a) the authorized management official requesting the waiver and b) the authorized management official approving the waiver. Any waiver of a
Key Leadership Position (KLP) or tenure requirements must be approved by the Component Acquisition Executive (CAE). However, all waivers must be prepared by an authorized management official, with
employee personal information obtained from the employee's official record on file.
All position requirements and tenure waivers must be documented on the Position Requirements and Tenure Waiver form (DD 2905). The waiver
must identify the specific standards or tenure that is being waived and explain the circumstances justifying the waiver. The position requirements waiver must also address the individual’s ability to
perform successfully in the position without meeting the standards.
Waivers apply to a single position. They do not overlap when that person moves from one AT&L position to another AT&L position. One exception to this rule is when waiving the requirement for a
contracting officer’s warrant. In that case, the waiver is valid only for the particular warrant for which it is granted.
Position waivers are processed at the time of the assignment, except under the following conditions:
All waiver requests are to be submitted to the Acquisition Career Manager (ACM) for processing.
“On October 1, 2013, the Department of Defense established the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to manage the activities of the Military Health System. These activities include those previously managed by TRICARE Management Activity (TMA), which was disestablished on the same date. During the next several months, all TMA websites will change to reflect the new DHA. We appreciate your patience during this transition."
