Award letters for those successful in the Statewide Bid Process (SWB) or Voluntary Transfer Process (VTP) are being mailed today by the Office of Workforce Planning.

Participation in SWB/VTP – depending on whether the employee is in a peace officer or non-peace officer classification – was offered to employees who could be impacted by the Wave 4 Layoffs as a possible way to remain employed by CDCR.

Since both SWB and VTP are outside the layoff process, however, an employee who moves as a result of either process has no guarantee of not being impacted by the layoff process.

The awards are binding and irrevocable. Because of the Veterans Day Holiday, Nov. 11, employees awarded positions through SWB or VTP will be expected to report to their new locations on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Employees who have received State Restriction of Appointment or SROA letters in the  Wave 4 Layoffs should visit the Layoff Resources website for information about the layoff process, including frequently asked questions, links to labor agreements with affected labor organizations, etc.
