Commitment to Hiring Persons with Disabilities

The Department of Justice, including the Tax Division, is firmly committed to satisfying its affirmative obligations under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, to ensure that persons with disabilities have equal opportunity to be hired and advanced on the basis of merit.

If you are applying for a position within Justice and meet the eligibility requirements for persons with targeted disabilities under 5 C.F.R. 213.3102(u), commonly referred to as Schedule A, you may apply to an advertised position through the normal channels. With respect to positions within the Tax Division, you may also contact the Tax Division’s Disability Point of Contact (DPOC), Phyllis Wolfteich, at, or 202-616-2774.

OPM Shared List of People with Disabilities

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has retained Bender Consulting Services to recruit, screen and direct candidates with disabilities to federal agencies for positions in the areas of accounting, budget analysis, contact representative, contracts, finance, human resources, information technology, administrative support and miscellaneous clerical positions. OPM has allowed the U.S. Department of Justice to use this list to identify potential candidates for employment within the Department. The Tax Division considers well-qualified candidates from the Bender list and a variety of other sources when seeking candidates for our positions.

Successful candidates will be placed on the OPM Shared List of People with Disabilities, a database of resumes currently being accessed by more than 400 agency representatives and available to hiring managers and human resource personnel government-wide.

Opportunities are available for applicants in locations throughout the United States. Positions are available for applicants with disabilities who are early career through senior career levels. This is a great opportunity for college students with disabilities, including graduate students, and experienced career professionals to work for federal agencies.

In order to qualify, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen and eligible for the Schedule A hiring authority.

Applicants should submit their resume to, and reference "Federal Career Opportunities" in the subject line. For more information, visit the Bender Consulting Services website.

Reasonable Accommodations

The Department of Justice, including the Tax Division, provides reasonable accommodations, upon request, for persons with disabilities when necessary during the application, interview and hiring process (such as the need for forms in alternate formats or the use of a sign language interpreter during the interview). In addition, the Department provides reasonable accommodations to its employees who require additional assistance in carrying out their duties as a result of a disability. If you require a reasonable accommodation during the application or interview process within the Tax Division please contact Phyllis Wolfteich at or 202-616-2774.
