What is the Military Spouse Preference Program?
The Military Spouse Preference (MSP) Program is a Department of Defense initiative designed to provide non-competitive employment opportunities to spouses of  active-duty military members. The program aims to support the career mobility and stability of military spouses throughout PCS moves. To participate in the program, spouses must meet the below requirements. 

  • You are a spouse of an active-duty service member
  • Move with your spouse to a new duty station
  • Married before your spouse's reporting date to the new duty station and be listed as a family member on the PCS orders
  • Apply for a position within commuting distance of your spouse's new duty station
  • Meet the minimum requirements of the position you are seeking

Vacancy Availability
Military Spouse Preference applies to appropriated or nonappropriated fund vacancies in positions designated for U.S. citizens. Military spouse preference also applies to nonappropriated fund positions at grade NF-3 and below. 

Usage Requirements of MSP Program
You may apply for positions using your Military Spouse Preference until you either accept or decline a permanent appropriated or non-appropriated fund position. Spouse preference may be exercised once per permanent relocation (PCS), when appointed to a regular full or part time position. If spouse preference is used to obtain employment for a NAF vacancy, it cannot be used a second time for a civil service/APF vacancy, or vice versa. You will not lose your military spouse preference if you accept or decline a temporary position.
