The Office of Personnel Management has been selected to receive an award for creating a web-based technology platform that works to help federal agencies automate the employee performance appraisal process. OPM said Monday that its USA Performance system won the Public Sector Innovation Award and received nomination for the FedScoop 50 Innovation of the Year Award.
Forty agencies have implemented the online platform since its 2014 rollout. The software has helped government users save an average of 300 annual work hours, OPM noted.
“We want them (customers/other agencies) to have opportunities to think strategically, do fantastic work, so anything that we can do for our customers to move them out of paper, out of checking this box, moving forward … we’re going to do it," said MC Price, associate chief information officer of OPM.
