The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for the city’s Professional Development Temporary Assignment Program (PD-TAP). PD-TAP is a career developmental program in which an employee is temporarily assigned to an office to support special tasks, projects, and/or to temporarily fill a vacant position, also referred to as “stretch assignment”.

This program seeks to enhance and develop the knowledge, skills and abilities of city employees by educating them in other areas of their department or within the city organization and to different types of work in order to facilitate development and growth of our workforce. If an office is experiencing a shortage in a particular competency or is in need of extra support in order to produce a specific project or to provide a specific service, this program may be used as a tool to temporarily increase that office’s capacity as long as the learning and development of the employee remains the primary objective of the assignment.
