Appointments may begin on any date. However, all appointments must end on 6/30/YR, with the exception of appointments that run less than one year. For example, the appointment may be for the period January 1, 2017, through May 31, 2017. However, the appointment dates may not be January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017. This appointment may begin on January 1, 2017, but must end on June 30, 2017. The individual may then be reappointed from July 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.
The only exception to this policy is for appointees whose visa requires that their appointment end date align with their visa expiration date. In these cases, the appointment end date may be other than June 30. However, the term of the appointment may not exceed one year. Please note that the visa type and expiration date should be provided in the notes section of the Wasabi hire form that is transmitted to OFA.
