Direct Hire Authority

Government-wide Direct Hire Authority allows agencies, including the Department of the Air Force, to appoint candidates directly to certain civilian Information Technology Management (Information Security) positions. In addition, the Department of Defense has, for civilian health care professionals, the authority to appoint candidates directly under a Direct Hire Authority to certain medical positions.

This process is being used because there exists a shortage of candidates or there is a critical hiring need in these information technology and medical areas. As established under the recruitment procedures for these opportunities, to apply for these types of positions, please visit to apply online and submit your resume electronically.
