Archuleta sworn in as OPM director


Katherine Archuleta officially became the 10th director of the Office of Personnel Management this morning following a private swearing-in ceremony, the agency said in a news release. Archuleta, confirmed by the Senate last Wednesday to a four-year term, began the day  by greeting employees in the lobby of OPM headquarters.

“OPM touches so many lives and has such a significant impact on government service,” Archuleta said in the release. “I look forward to getting to know the many dedicated, hard-working men and women who serve the public every day.”

Archuleta replaces John Berry, who left in April en route to a new gig as ambassador to Australia. Filling in as director was OPM General Counsel Elaine Kaplan, who officiated at this morning’s swearing-in ceremony, attended by Archuleta’s husband, Edmundo Gonzales.

Among other activities, Archuleta will spend the week meeting with senior staff and getting briefed on various issues facing the agency.

  1. Congratulations on your new position. I hope you can now rectify the locality pay disparity between WG and GS employees at Tobyhanna Army Depot in Pennsylvania which has been going on since 2005.
    Thank you
