The Office of Personnel Management is conducting yet another workforce-related survey, this time with the CIO Council.
Under the administration’s IT reform plan, OPM is taking the lead on creating a specialized career path for program managers. The survey, in part, will aid OPM in the process and provide strategies “to recruit, retain, develop, and manage a fully trained and qualified IT workforce,” according to information posted on CIO.gov.
Results will help agencies:
– Identify the existing IT expertise across the Government workforce.
– Determine where resources should be focused to improve or sustain IT competencies and skills.
– Assess progress in closing competency and skill gaps.
The voluntary survey will take about 40 to 60 minutes to complete, and results will be released this spring within each agency.
