Education Dept. Offers Buyouts and Early Outs

The Education Department will start offering a second round this year of buyouts and early retirements to employees.

Government Executive obtained an email sent Monday by Robert Buggs, the department’s chief human capital officer. Buggs notified all employees of the department’s intention to offer buyouts and early retirements to eligible employees in 12 different program offices.

The buyouts and early outs will begin in September and extend through Jan. 3, 2012.

The Education Department was one of several agencies that recently asked the Office of Personnel Management’s permission for buyouts, with OPM approving the department’s request. The department has asked OPM to expand and modify its authority.
