Exceptions to the time limits
You may make a temporary limited appointment without regard to the time limits if the position involves intermittent or seasonal work, provided that:
• Appointments and extensions are made in increments of one year or less, and
• Employment in the position is less than six months (1,040 hours), excluding overtime, in a service year.
You must submit a written request to OPM’s HCLMSA Division for exceptions due to a major reorganization, base closing, or other unusual circumstances (see 5 CFR Part 316).
