    • Lucas, Why would you want to? I'm guessing you're on as a 5 and want to get on as a 6? You're going to get 6 once you're off probation anyways.

        Generally you have to wait until yo have your year in unless there is a specific hardship request. It use to be a simple Warden to Warden phone call and you putting in a memo but that changed about 5 years ago. The way they do it now is they now post everything through USA jobs. An announcement is posted for say FCI anywhere for a GL 6 CO or GL 7 Senior Officer, the eligibility part will state "BOP Reassignment eligible" etc. That is how you apply for a lateral now. On a lateral YOU are responsible for all of your move.

        I would suggest you start asking your CAPT. AW and Warden if that is your true intent. They will more than likely help you, know folks at that institution and will call them for you and vouch you out for them (which is how assignments/moves work in BOP. Often times the other joint won't post a spot for GL 6 or &7's "reassignment eligible" unless they know of folks that are interested. If you look at those announcements they are generally only a week or a little longer compared to most others which are open longer.


        Good Luck!

            That is the obvious reason why I didn't see a reason to do it, except to get to GL 7 faster. Some guys told me to do it and some told me not to. I decided to stay but I was just curious. Someone said that you would have to go through the process as if you are being hired, again.

              Oh don't worry they will get work out of you later. As mundane as IF is sit back and enjoy it because as an Officer you most likely will not get a lunch break where you can sit down for a very long time.

              It won't get you a GL 7 any faster. The process to lateral is not as detailed as getting hired the first time. You apply but you are what the called "excepted service" and as such you will automatically BQ for every grade up to what you are so no need for the whole KSA questions. Then the gaining institution will call and vouch you out. Depending on the amount of positions the new place has and amount of other folks that want a lateral you should get it, If thats what you want.

                      The institution is actually still IF (Institution Familiarization). ICT is the course for BOP at Glynco. ICT stands for Introduction to Correctional Techniques.

                          Not to split hairs here but, They also say ICT 1 on the Glynco link through Sallyport that the IF instructors use for the IF topic (unless they are using the same in CD form). IF is still IF and Glynco is ICT (the real ICT).
