Once a Finalist accepts a tentative PMF appointment offer, he/she should complete the OPM Form 1306, PMF Appointment Intake Form. This form collects basic appointment information for updating the PMF TMS (e.g., the PMF appointment opportunity announcement number, anticipated start date, position title, job series, grade level, agency/sub-agency, and/or name and email address of supervisor). Finalists are encouraged to immediately fill out the form and submit to the PMF Program Office and to the Agency PMF Coordinator of the appointing agency upon formal acceptance of a PMF appointment offer. Finalists may not know all of the initial appointment information and may submit updates along the way.
Ultimately it is the Agency PMF Coordinator of the appointing agency who is responsible for entering appointment information in the PMF TMS; however, the PMF Program Office may enter such information to assist Coordinators and Finalists. The form can be found under the Resources webpage.
Based on this information, the Finalist's status will be updated in the PMF TMS. Your status as a Finalist changes to a Fellow once you accept or start your appointment and/or when the appointment information is recorded in the PMF TMS. Once a Finalist is recorded as accepting a PMF appointment offer, he/she will no longer have access to search for appointment opportunities and their status changes to "Appointed". Once a Finalist onboards as a Fellow, he/she would log into the Apply Site of the PMF TMS to search for other opportunities (e.g., rotational and training). The two-year fellowship begins on the first day of onboarding as a Fellow.
