D.C. government employee occupying an excepted service position, who was employed by the District of Columbia prior to January 1, 1980, is advised that he may not transfer to a nontemporary competitive service position in the federal government without establishing eligibility on an appropriate civil service register and being ranked sufficiently high among competing eligibles for appointment selection. Since there was no right to transfer prior to January 1, 1980, the savings clause, section 422(3) of Public Law 93- 198 is not applicable.
