WHAT IS THE VOLUNTARY RELOCATION PROGRAM (VRP)? The Voluntary Relocation Program (VRP) is a negotiated process which affords current IRS Bargaining Unit employees the opportunity to relocate to a Post of Duty (POD) to a position that is the same as their home position of record. The move must be the same grade, series and position description (PD), but also be within the same Business Operating Division (BOD). Relocation must be an exact position match; the Program does not allow for promotion or change to lower grades.
Conditions of Employment
This is a bargaining unit position only allowing relocations for bargaining unit employees of the IRS.
Applicants must file their voluntary applications for consideration, selecting NO MORE THAN THREE (3) locations for which they wish to be considered, by the closing dates specified in the announcement. It is strongly encouraged that all applicants verify with their business units before applying to ensure the location(s) they choose are eligible for their possible relocation. If a selected POD does not have a business unit/IRS presence or meet CORE requirements for applicable business units, relocation to certain PODs may not be possible for some employees.
Applicants will ONLY be referred for positions that are an exact match to their home position of record: same grade, series, work schedule (e.g. seasonal to seasonal), PD, and specialty, if any. There is no promotion potential under the Voluntary Relocation Program.
Applicants will ONLY be referred for locations which they wish to be considered. Applicants can request a copy of the position description if selected under this program.
Applicants who apply by January 20, 2023 will be considered until December 31, 2023. Applicants who apply after January 20, 2023 will be considered from July 20, 2023 to December 31, 2023. After December 31, 2023 all VRP applicants will need to reapply for the 2024 VRP announcement. Relocation is not guaranteed.
The salary range indicated in this announcement reflects the minimum locality pay up to maximum locality pay for all duty locations listed. The range will be adjusted for selected duty location. General Schedule locality pay tables may be found under Salaries & Wages.
For more information, see Article 15, Section 6 of the 2022 National Agreement.
