NAPA to Study Potential Outcomes of OPM-GSA Merger

The National Academy of Public Administration announced that a five-member panel would direct NAPA research personnel to look at the potential outcomes of the proposed merger of the Office of Personnel Management with the General Services Administration, FCW reported Monday.

NAPA will examine OPM’s statutory mandates, views of stakeholders on the merger, the impact of the move on labor management relations and the potential impact of the merger on agency functions and costs and benefits.

NAPA entered into a contract with OPM to conduct the study and is expected to hand over the report to Congress by March 2021. The study is part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 202 for fiscal year 2020.
