The Open Government Directive requires agencies to make information of various kinds easily available to the public. Each agency’s Open Government Plan includes a Strategic Plan for Transparency that details what the agency will make available and how it will do so. Below you will find information about some of the high-value information we make publicly available, and you can find more links to information sources in the Strategic Plan for Transparency in our initial Open Government Plan.
We make a considerable amount of information available to the public electronically. One example is Fedscope, where you can access federal human resources data. We also provide policies related to the appeal process, staffing information, veterans’ preference information, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reports, pay and leave information, classification standards, and retirement information, all on our website, opm.gov, or through other federal Web sites (see version 1 of our Open Government Plan for details).
You can find a lot of OPM data on Data.gov, as well as on our Federal Employment Statistics site or through our list of datasets. We also provide financial data for publication on USAspending.gov. Our Testimony page presents testimony dating back to the 109th Congress (2005-2006). Reports to other entities, such as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), can be found in our Reports Portal.
We develop human resources policies for the Federal government. Many policies can be found in the archives of the Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCO) Council, dating back to 1996. Others are available through our publications database.
