International Development Intern (IDI) Program: Guidelines for Performance Reviews and Administrative Promotions

Mandatory Reference for ADS Chapter 459

Responsible Office: M/HR
File Name: 459maa_070606_cd44


These guidelines provide an overview of the newly established promotion consideration process for IDIs at grades 6 and 5. Because this promotion review process occurs largely independent of and at different times than the annual performance review for all Foreign Service Officers, careful attention must be devoted to ensuring timely IDI promotion reviews. In addition, because the Agency is in the process of reinstituting a Tenure Board, it is important to recognize and appreciate the interplay between this promotion review process, FS Performance Boards and the Tenure Board.
