Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is implementing a Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) pilot program for up to 16 Local Federal Coordinating Committees (LFCC) to allow them to enter into two-year agreements with non-profit organizations to serve as the Principal Combined Fund Organization (PCFO). These agreements would be subject to renewal after the first year, following a review of performance as defined by the CFC regulations at 5 CFR Part 950, subparts A, D through F, and I. The primary objective of the pilot program is to assess the potential impact of the multi-year agreements in advance of a possible proposal for a permanent amendment to the CFC regulations and nationwide implementation with particular attention on: (a) Potential for costs savings; (b) potential to promote competition; (c) serve as incentive for mergers; and (d) potential need for new regulatory safeguards.
The pilot program will be effective for the selection of the 2005 PCFO, which must occur no later than March 15, 2005. Selected LFCCs that choose to participate will be required to conduct a performance review and decide whether or not to renew the agreement with the PCFO for the second year no later than January 16, 2006. If the agreement is not renewed, then the participating LFCC will need to solicit a new PCFO and make a selection no later than March 15, 2006.Start Further Info
