A group of former U.S. government executives will propose a blueprint to overhaul the Senior Executive Service next spring, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.
Emily Kopp writes several former high-ranking federal officials gathered last week to brainstorm strategies for SES reform through an initiative sponsored by the Brookings Institution and Booz Allen Hamilton.
Launched in 1979, SES is tasked to provide management expertise to help transform the government.
Ron Sanders, a corporate vice president at Booz Allen and former SES member, said the White House should introduce an exchange program that could allow SES members to move from one agency to another when needed, according to the station.
Sanders also believes the Office of Personnel Management should evaluate SES candidates based on their ability to manage transparency, risk and complex issues across the government.
President Barack Obama is scheduled to host an SES meeting next month.
