Starting in about 2011 or so, I started seeing jobs only open to EPA employees for 13/14 jobs in the Science fields. I even interviewed for a few positions. Today- nothing. Anyone know if this is simply currently policy or has this been the way they've operated for years?

I've been out of the agency for 4 years but, back then, I saw the same pattern. FTE restriction on outside hires can be one cause. Sometimes, there is a promising EPA candidate, perhaps outside of the commuting area, that the hiring official may have in mind but for which competition is needed. But these policies change from time to time so I can't give you a current assessment

I believe they're still under a hiring freeze of some kind.
