Pursuant to Rule 18, Section 89, 2017 RACCS, only a qualified next-in-rank official or employee may file a protest against an appointment made in favor of another who does not possess the minimum qualification requirements.

Further, as a rule, no employee may be promoted to a position which is more than three salary grade. However, the rule is not absolute and provides exceptions. Section 97, 2017 ORAOHRA provides for the following exceptions to wit:

b. The vacant position is lone or entrance position, as indicated in the agency staffing pattern;
c. The vacant position is hard to fill, such as accountant, medical officer/specialist, lawyer, or information technology officer/computer programmer positions;
d. The vacant position is unique or highly specialized, such as actuarial, airways communicator positions;
e. The candidates passed through a deep selection process, taking into consideration the candidates’ superior qualification in regard to: education achievements, highly specialized trainings, work experience, and consistent high performance rating/ranking;
f. The vacant position belongs to the closed career system
g. Other meritorious cases, such as:
• Appointee is the lone applicant who meets all the requirements for the position and passed through deep selection process

• When the next-in-rank position, as identified in the agency SRP is vacant;
