SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer (OCHCO) is implementing an enterprise e-Recruitment system for DHS. The use of an automated recruitment solution is necessary to meet mission critical needs of DHS and comply with the 45-day hiring model under the President's Management Agenda.

Technology-enabled recruitment can deliver both time savings and improved results. Based on an internal inventory of DHS human resource (HR) systems, more than 50 systems are currently used by DHS components to perform hiring/recruitment related activities. As part of the effort to consolidate and modernize the HR systems, the OCHCO is leading an effort to consolidate towards an automated enterprise solution that can contribute to material improvements in the overall hiring process.

Working in close collaboration, OCHCO's Human Capital Business System (HCBS) and Human Capital units defined the key project goals. The overall vision for the e-Recruitment initiative is to implement a state-of-the-art system that automates hiring/recruitment processes across DHS and seamlessly integrates with other related DHS services.
