    Is Whidbey Paying SSR?

    I'm looking at the salary posted in the job announcement and I cannot reconcile the posted salary with any figures that I know of. I've tried base plus ssr of 30, 25, and 20%. I've tried locality plus 5% AOU premium. Nothing really adds up to the posted salary.

    Any non cti or vra selected?

    Curious if anybody was picked up this past panel that was NOT CTI or VRA? I applied under the DOD and CTO bids. I know several others in my boat(no vra anymore) that were not picked up either. The DOD folks that I know who were picked up were selected on the VRA bids and not the REIDOD.
