OPM, OMB Announce New HR Mgmt Effort

HealthRecordsThe Office of Personnel Management, the Office of Management and Budget and the Chief Human Capital Officers Council have launched a new initiative aimed to help agencies change planning, reporting and oversight of human resources.

This collaboration aims to help federal agency managers and employees hire and retain talent through HR procedures and technology, says a letter by OPM Acting Director Elaine Kaplan.

OPM and OMB intend to help agencies address HR issues, identify methods to advance their objectives through Government Performance and Results Act strategic and annual performance plans and recommend best practices and investments in common HR functions.

Kaplan wrote OPM and OMB have reviewed the human capital assessment and accountability framework, the basis for HR management under the Chief Human Capital Officers Act, in an effort to update HR roles and duties.

Those two agencies intend to work with other agencies to develop two-year strategic and annual performance plans for the fiscal 2015 budget release and submit it to the Congress by February 2014.

Agency chief operating officer and performance improvement officers will review agency performance and the issues affecting its progress as required by the GPRA Modernization Act, Kaplan wrote.

OPM will examine agencies’ plans to hire, promote, retain and train human resources, as well as combine related reports with goals to improve HR reporting as mandated by the President’s executive order on diversity.

The agency als0 intends to gather agency and public feedback as part of efforts to drive agency performance.
