                 DECISION AND ORDER ON NEGOTIABILITY ISSUE
 
    The petition for review in this case comes before the Authority
 pursuant to section 7105(a)(2)(E) of the Federal Service
 Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute), and raises the
 question of the negotiability of the following Union proposal:  /1/
 
          4f.  Management will advertise all local vacancies under local
       merit promotion procedures per the labor-management agreement and
       not expand the area of consideration to include the Comptroller
       Civilian Career Management Program as long as there are local
       qualified applicants.
 
    Upon careful consideration of the entire record, including the
 parties' contentions, the Authority makes the following determination.
 
    The proposal would effectively preclude management from expanding the
 area of consideration so long as there are local qualified applicants.
 In this regard, section 7106(a)(2)(C) of the Statute reserves to
 management the right to make selections for appointments from among
 properly ranked and certified candidates for promot
