The Office of Personnel Management plans to boost development and training services for federal employees by developing new workforce digital tools, FedScoop reported Monday.

Billy Mitchell writes OPM Director Katherine Archuleta announced the GovU sharing and collaboration portal comprising colleges that focus on training and development in specific areas.

“I want to make sure that from the moment someone applies for a federal position to the day they decide to retire, that we provide the tools they need to develop and to succeed,” Archuleta told a conference.

The Defense Department has agreed to open its security and intelligence certification program to federal employees under the GovU program, according to the report.

Archuleta also told the conference that OPM plans to extend the GovU concept to the cybersecurity field, FedScoop reports.

OPM also launched a senior executive service onboarding website and an SES mentoring program for senior leadership, Mitchell reports.
