I THINK OPM SHOULD HIRE ADDITIONAL PERSONNEL TO DISPENSE A RETIREE'S PENSION . IT HAS BEEN FIVE AND A HALF MONTHS AND STILL NO PENSION. OH SURE THEY SEND YOU A SMALL AMOUNT AND EXPECT A PERSON TO LIVE OFF OF IT. THEY SEND ME A WHOPPING $714.00 A MONTH, THAT'S ABOUT $170.00 A WEEK.THAT IS REALLY NICE OF THEM. I CALL OPM AND RECEIVE THE SAME RUNAROUND THAT I NOW HAVE A CASE WORKER, BULL!!! I WONDER IF THEY COULD LIVE... more »

Disruptive Technologies: A Holistic, Pragmatic Approach New technologies are emerging at a faster pace than Agencies can swallow. The rate of obsolescence outpaces the rate of change. Despite the new technology flood, Agencies lack a strategy to on-board these disruptions. As a result, they often react, flounder, or simply ignore them. We can solve these problems in four major areas of practice: Leadership... more »
Bad choice for OPM to just send this to full time employees. Part-time employees are an important part of our workforce and you are sending them the wrong message by excluding them from this effort.
When NSPS employees who performed well so that their current pay is above the GS step 10 level go back to the original GS pay scale, a new one should be created. This should be similar to the different pay scales for computer people and nuclear engineers.
NSPS performing employees should not be penalized by 50% of their Jan pay increases.
I would like to participate in working with other veterans of my age or younger in getting them properly acclimated again to to civilian life. This could be in the capacity of an employed position or volunteering in the Boston Massachusetts area. Many times those who carry the weight of the U.S. on their shoulders are forgotten after returning home unless they have personal connections. To many are left to deal with... more »

While many people in the federal government are planning for retirement, there is a new generation of employees that can't be forgotten. Most families today consist of two working parents. As a mother, it is hard enough to return to work leaving your child in the care of someone else, but it is even worse not being able to take care of one's own medical recovery needs post-delivery because the federal government doesn't... more »
Complete work in progress. Require one task at a time to be totally completed. sure the work may pile up, but at least something will be completed.
I know many young, bright and eager individuals who are interested in becoming public servants. However the KSA's are difficult to understand and the online process of filling out an application is way too cumbersome! Even when a person labors and gets the application in they never hear anything back. The entire process is frustrating, impersonal, lacks good manners etc etc. The result is a lot of talent is going... more »
Community = the citizens who are looking for federal jobs + the federal employees who need to fill jobs + the OPM'ers who are responsible for making the process work on a country-level scale. The work of the latter can be shared between OPM and other agencies' experts, but someone with a collegial, competent presence has to manage the community. I think that person should be based at OPM. A good model for how this could... more »
Currently, members of the public have no idea how to submit petitions for rulemaking to the agency and actively participate in the rulemaking process, because the agency does not make this information available like other agencies do. So OPM should post easily-accessible, plain-English guidance on its public website regarding how the public can submit and comment on petitions for rulemaking. See, for example, the... more »
