(1) Supervisors that are serving as a selecting official are entrusted to use their best judgment in making selections based on job-related factors, including experience, education, competencies, performance, and awards. When considering current Federal employees, selecting officials shall consider information provided in the resume (which includes award information) and the most recent performance appraisal narrative summary to ensure that due weight is given to the job-related factors they are considering. Due weight means to ensure the appropriate value is given to each of the job-related factors that are part of the decision-making process.

If a current Federal employee does not or cannot provide the most recent narrative summary, the selecting official can determine if performance and award information can be gathered from a reference check with a current or past supervisor, or if performance and award information provided in the resume is sufficient to give proper consideration.
