All applicants must secure approval from their supervisors to apply for a DOI-ITAP assignment. Supervisors will then adhere to their Bureau requirements for any additional approvals required.

If selected for a short-term assignment, it is imperative that each specialist thoroughly understand and follow DOI Passport Policies and Procedures and DOI-ITAP Travel Policies.

Detail Opportunities with DOI-ITAP: From time to time, DOI-ITAP seeks to detail someone either from within or outside of DOI to assist DOI-ITAP staff on specific projects or tasks. These temporary assignments can vary in their duration, may be reimbursable, and can be full-time or part time, depending on the needs.
