missinthecity:  I would mention it a second time upon accepting the offer and then ask if you need to fill out a written request for approval.

I went on my 2 week honeymoon a week after I started a new job (my current job.) I spoke with my boss when he offered me the job and explained that I had booked tickets in advance. Then I filled out the needed paperwork for time off. It was not an issue at all.

I’ve started jobs several times when I had vacations planned – they have always worked around it – let me borrow vacation days, etc. It shouldn’t be a problem. I certainly don’t think you need to put it in writing at this point.

Unless there is some particular “season” in your agency, like fire season in the Forest Service, most agencies are pretty lax about time off. Many agencies even have maxi flex, so you could technically accrue credit hours and not have to take leave. All depends on your agency, I wouldn’t worry too much, there are federal laws in place to protect federal employees that don’t exist in the private sector. Highly doubt you’ll have an issue getting your time off.
