Inapplicability of the Federal Vacancies Reform Act’s Reporting Requirements When PAS Officers Serve Under Statutory Holdover Provisions

Headnotes: 

There is no “vacancy” within the meaning of the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 when a presidentially appointed, Senate-confirmed officer continues to hold a position under a statutory holdover provision. Therefore, the holdover service is not reportable under the Act.
