             What is an EPA PAF
   A PAF (Personnel Action Form) is a human resources
    form that is completed by the employee’s department
    when you hire or separate an EPA employee or change
    your EPA employee’s employment in some way*

   New permanent hires resulting from a search do not
    require a PAF. These searched positions are handled in
    the on-line employment system via the hiring proposal.

   discussion is for EPA actions only. You can contact the Office of Human
