Agency priorities

As we look forward to the beginning of 2014, I want to thank everyone in the OPM family for another extraordinary year of service to the federal workforce, to retirees, their families and the American people.

Looking back on 2013, OPM employees have worked through many challenges to achieve so much. And they never missed a beat in their efforts to ensure that the work of this vital agency continued.  The agency made strides in such important areas as improving retirement processing, increasing the percentage of new hires who are veterans and people with disabilities, implementing key provisions of the Affordable Care Act and beginning work on the reform of our IT systems.

And I want to thank OPM for welcoming me as its new Director and for the support I’ve been given as this important agency begins the next chapter in its history.

2014 is going to be an exciting and busy year. I’m looking forward to ensuring that OPM continues to make the federal government a model employer for the 21st Century. We must find ways to honor government employees here and around the world, strive to create a workforce that is engaged, innovative, inclusive and reflects the brilliant mosaic of the America we all serve.

All my best wishes for a Happy New Year!
