Medical and qualifications objections, veteran preference eligible, OPM

Notwithstanding any delegation of authority to your agency, OPM retains exclusive authority to:

• Make medical qualifications determinations pertaining to preference eligibles (5 CFR part 339); and
• Grant or deny an agency's pass over request of a preference eligible with a compensable service-connected disability of 30% or more. (5 U.S.C. § 3318). See Chapter 6, Section D for more information on objections and pass overs.
