Senior Executives Association Supports Elevation of OPM to Executive Office of the President

WASHINGTON, DC - The Senior Executives Association strongly endorses the reorganization of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) as a long overdue government modernization effort that will improve Federal human capital practices and greatly enhance the ability of the Federal government to compete in the 21st Century war for talent and secure the best and brightest public servants.

“Since 2001, GAO has listed human capital challenges as a ‘high risk issue’ facing the Federal government. Both the proposed structural streamlining – including the elevation of OPM to within the Executive Office of the President – and the added emphasis on OPM’s core functions of providing human capital policy and oversight solve many problems that have for nearly two decades plagued Federal human capital processes and practices,” said SEA President Bill Valdez.  “Every major corporation in America has a C-Suite human capital office for a reason: it is a core business function that supports operating units and enables those operating units to be more effective and efficient.

“OPM’s current structure prevents it from being the expert consultative human capital office the Federal government desperately needs. SEA is eager to work with the Administration, Congress and other key stakeholders to fully implement this bold new vision for human capital,” Valdez concluded.
