(a) Contract specialists are expected to conduct themselves both on and off-the-job as employees of ASG. Rules regarding outside work, conflict of interest, and political activities published in the ASCA and elsewhere in this title apply equally to contract employees.
(b) A contract specialist is precluded by and for the duration of his contracted term of service from competing for other vacant positions with the ASG. He may, however, request reassignment to a vacant position and his request may be granted at the discretion of his agency head and the selecting authority when to do so is in the interest of the government.
(c) At the expiration of a contract, every effort shall be made to fill the contract position in the career service. If a position which has been filled by contract can be filled within the career service, the incumbent of that position can compete for the position on a career service basis if he is entitled to permanent residency in American Samoa or if his/her spouse is entitled to permanent residency.
(d) Contract specialists shall not engage in self-employment in American Samoa, either directly or indirectly, in any form whatsoever, during the terms of their agreements.History: Rule 10-81, eff 29 Jul 81, § 10.11.
