“CDA* has been a disaster for entry-level bidding this year and effectively is forcing people in high-equity positions to rebid because the bidders were not told they had to bid on priority posts**. CDA is punishing second-tour officers for CDA’s inability to manage a bidding cycle.”
*CDA – Office of Career Development and Assignment
** Priority Staffing Posts/High Threat Posts (e.g., Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, South Sudan, Libya, and Yemen)
** priority posts – positions marked “high priority” by the bureaus.
