Dear Mr. Secretary:
I would like to congratulate you for your strong defense of the Federal workforce at the George Washington University forum on Tuesday.
In response to the release of guidance memorandum M-17-22 from OMB Director Mick Mulvaney, “Comprehensive Plan for Reforming the Federal Government and Reducing the Federal Civilian Workforce,” Bill Valdez, President of the Senior Executives Association (SEA) issued the following statement:
Dear Mr. Kushner,
The Senior Executives Association (SEA), which represents the interests of the 7,200 career senior executive leaders in the Federal government, was pleased to learn that you will be leading The White House Office of American Innovation.
Dear Director Mulvaney and Acting Director McGettigan:
The Senior Executives Association (SEA) has determined that the hiring freeze, coupled with other factors such as natural attrition, the Presidential transition, and limited ability to backfill positions, has created a critical “leadership vacuum” within the Federal government. As a result, I am writing to request that you provide immediate relief to those agencies that have vacant mission critical career leadership positions exacerbated by the hiring freeze.
