Greetings! This week’s top news includes information about the new conditionally approved status in COLAs Online, and we are looking to fill an investigator position.


The new Conditionally Approved status in COLAs Online made its debut on June 27. It further streamlines the label approval process by allowing us, under limited circumstances, to propose changes to the information you entered in COLAs Online in order to make it consistent with the label you submitted with your application.  You have the option to accept or decline our proposed changes.

We’ve already held webinars about this new status, and we plan to hold more in the future. In the meantime, you can view the webinar presentation on TTB.gov, which features screenshots of what you’ll see in COLAs Online when your application is in the Conditionally Approved status. You can also read this article for more information.

Got questions or feedback for us on the Conditionally Approved status? Please contact us.


We are seeking candidates to fill one investigator position. The location is negotiable and no prior federal experience is required.

Among other things, this investigator will:

  • Develop bureau program policies for various investigation activities
  • Lead and coordinate complex field investigations that cross jurisdictional lines and/or involve other government agencies
  • Develop training materials and coordinate and conduct formal classroom training for other investigators

TTB is recognized as one of the federal government’s best places to work.  We ranked in the top 2% of agency subcomponents (#8 of 415) in 2018.  If you are interested in this job opportunity, you must apply through USAJOBS no later than August 27, 2019.

For more details, view the vacancy announcement: 19-TTB-53-P.
