ACTION:

Notice of meeting.

SUMMARY:

The Office of Personnel Management will hold a public meeting on June 25, 2010, as part of its hiring reform initiative to hear and consider views on whether normal, competitive hiring is an effective avenue for bringing recent college graduates into the Federal workforce. On May 11, 2010, President Obama issued a Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies in which he stated that “the Federal Government must recruit and hire highly qualified employees and public service should be a career of choice for the most talented Americans.” This public meeting will constitute one phase of that initiative.

DATES:

The meeting will occur on June 25, 2010, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Office of Personnel Management, Campbell Auditorium, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20415. Notice of this meeting is published well in advance of the meeting to give sufficient notice to interested parties. Members of the public wishing to make an oral presentation at the hearing must submit a written statement on the issue(s) they would like to present, as well as a written request to make an oral presentation at the meeting, on or before June 18, 2010. Members of the public wishing to submit written statements only, must submit such statements by 5 p.m. on June 24, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Objective: The purpose of this meeting is (1) to hear and consider views on whether normal, competitive hiring is an effective avenue for bringing recent college graduates into the Federal workforce and, if so, why that is the case; (2) to ascertain from those who believe that it is not effective, whether this presents a problem for the Federal Government that is sufficiently significant to warrant action or changes to policy; and (3) if action or changes in policy are warranted, to determine what change should be effected and by whom.

Panel Discussions: The meeting will commence with a series of panels to discuss these issues, comprised of individuals from a broad variety of organizations with an interest in Federal hiring.

Any such request must be in writing and be accompanied by a written statement addressing the issue(s) on which the individual would like to present.
