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:
The Senior Executives Association’s (SEA) Professional Development League (PDL) designed a new handbook to specifically address the needs and challenges of federal career executives.
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.
With a new administration filing into Capitol Hill, FEDtalk invites local experts in for a discussion on government reform.
