How to Apply to Post a Joint Duty Assignment Opportunity

Should a DHS Component organization supervisor apply to post a Joint Duty Assignment opportunity to backfill the position of an employee on a Joint Duty Assignment, please complete the DHS Assignment Opportunity Form 250-01 and provide the following:

  • Assignment Type: virtual or traditional (onsite). You may choose to announce the position as a full-time virtual opportunity, or temporarily until your local offices reopen to employees.
  • Assignment description and required job qualifications.
  • Digital signatures from the Component first-line and second-line supervisor. Note: Supervisor’s approval is required to submit an opportunity.

In a Virtual Joint Duty Assignment, the employee works from the employing office (physically) or teleworks from home full-time, a standard 40-hour work week. There are two options for employing organization supervisors to apply to post a virtual joint duty assignment: 1) a full-time Virtual Joint Duty Assignment until the end of the assignment, or 2) a Virtual Joint Duty Assignment until local offices reopen.

Send completed forms to jointdutyprogramoffice@hq.dhs.gov.
