Language Policy and Points
The Department is currently reviewing its foreign language policies
and practices. We have just limited the languages we will test to
those with entry-level positions requiring them. In addition,
telephone language tests are only valid now for 18 months.
Language Policy and Points

We are now looking at the point structure awarded for different
languages. There have been no changes approved yet (Russian still
receives .4) but expect that points already awarded to candidates on a
register will remain valid for the life of that candidacy even if
changes are made.
