Leave Transfer Program: Transfers from Other Agencies

The transfer of annual leave from a leave donor of another Federal agency will be accepted if any one of the following conditions is met:

  • The amount of annual leave donated by Commerce leave donors does not meet a leave recipient's needs as requested and approved;
  • A family member of a leave recipient is employed by another agency and requests to donate annual leave to the recipient; or
  • In the judgment of the recipient's servicing human resources office, acceptance of leave transferred from another agency would further the purpose of the voluntary leave transfer program.

Before accepting the transfer from a leave donor of another Federal agency, the recipient's servicing human resources office, must verify that the donor's agency has approved the donor's request to transfer annual leave to the specified Commerce leave recipient.
