    New announcement is up on USAJOBS.

    In the Qualifications section:

    Employees that have not been facility radar certified at a level 10 or above Terminal facility will be required to pass the Ten Eleven Twelve Radar Assessment (TETRA). Please read the New York TRACON (N90) Academy and Employee Transfer Procedures at https://www.faa.gov/jobs/media/NY_Tracon_Transfer_Procedures.pdf.

    So would that mean they would send center people who wanted to go to terminal to RTF? At least that’s how I read the flow chart.

    Seems like a better approach then just flinging bodies at N90 and hoping. At least this way they could weed out some people before they hit the door....

    Why close out the bid for a new one, yet make a referral list on the old one?

    Because this one got rid of the level 8 requirement and added the whole TETRA thing. Afaik that's the only difference.

    Hopefully. Center transfers, at least in my sector, historically don't do very well here.

    Yeah it did. Just saying it doesn’t make sense to refer people if they intend on them having to reapply

    My only guess is that they kept our applications semi-active so we wouldn't have to re-apply when the qual change went into effect.

    Does anybody know if receiving a TOL on this bid will effect ERRs I have in the system? I'm assuming accepting a TOL will remove the ERRs but will only receiving one drop them out? I may actually have a shot on this next NCEPT panel and I'd like to see it play out.

    Your initial thought is correct. Accepting a TOL removes all ERR's in the system, receiving a TOL does not. If you decline a TOL, it will remove your ERR for that facility only. N90 is an MPP bid and handled outside of the ERR process. Although you'd be potentially blocking someone from leaving, you could receive a TOL through the NCEPT, accept it, then later find out you were selected for N90, receive a TOL from them, and decide to go to N90.

    This is weird, the usajob website was updated and shows I made the referral list again on that level 8 continuous bid that just closed on 1/16/2018, which I was not hired for last year. I guess it happened because of this new CPC bid that just came out. Happened to any of you guys? Thanks...

    This also happened to me. Even thou I didn’t have the 8 requirement. Going to put in for the new bid now and just sit with both. Hopefully they can transfer my old application and that’s why they did it .

    Received my TOL over two weeks ago with the FOL last week. Was picked up from the CPC bid prior to Jan. 1, reporting to N90 on July 1 with OKC dates one week later.

    What do you guys think? With this new CPC bids, what’s the chance of 7 and below Radar CPCs getting selected? Reality tells me that they would only go to 7 and below when the 8 and above candidates are exhausted..Reality sucks doesn’t it?!?!? SMH LOL

    I'd say your chances of getting selected have gone up now that the Academy has a set of classes that N90 hires have to go to unless they already have 10+ terminal experience.

    Hopefully it has become a matter of when, not if.
