I'm confused how you got that? It says right in there submit to facility manager of choice.So I got this from Aviation Careers about reinstatement:
To apply for reinstatement please follow the listed guidance:
**Selection/Assignment placement is based on need of the agency. Selection and facility placement is not guaranteed. **
Reinstatement applicants must have CPC status.
Submit full application package and certifications to facility manager of choice, unless separated within 6 months, then must apply to location where separated. Facility manager will route application package as necessary. Application package must include:
• Copies of certifications
• SF 50 original Appointment
• SF 50 completion of probationary period
• SF 50 Separation
For copies of these documents, you must request through https://www.archives.gov/
Prior training failure at any level may constitute basis for non-selection.
Reinstatement applicants must meet the following conditions:
• Must be reinstatement eligible
• Meet age requirements (some exemptions/provisions apply)
• Medical requirements
• Security requirements
So you don't really get to pick your facility? So this is just a new way to apply for reinstatement but ultimately they still tell you where you are going?
All that first sentence is saying is that selection is not guaranteed
