The Office of Personnel Management wants to update information technology systems used to monitor recruitment, training and retirement processes across government agencies, GovExec reported Wednesday.
Kellie Lunney writes Katherine Archuleta, OPM director, and Donna Seymour, OPM chief information officer, unveiled the agency’s IT modernization plan in a joint interview with GovExec.
The goal is to develop an “HR lifecycle IT framework” for OPM to expedite processing of federal employees’ documents from the time they are hired until they leave federal service, according to the article.
Seymour told the publication that her office intends to hire more IT security professionals.
“Identifying new IT leadership, using existing agency expertise, and seeking advice from experts from inside government and the private sector, I believe that OPM can successfully update its IT systems,” Archuleta said, according to the report.
