n7 While the vacancy announcement for the GEMO position stated that it was temporary, IAF, Tab 21, Ex. 10, the administrative judge found that the record showed that the positions were later converted to permanent positions. See I.D. at 6, n.3. We find no evidence directly showing that the positions were converted to permanent positions, however. We note though that there is also no evidence showing that the selectees were removed after the expiration of the temporary appointments. In the absence of such evidence, we will assume that the selectees were placed into permanent positions. Thus, any position offered to the appellant must be a permanent position.
