Step 1: Validate the Need Against the Workforce, Staffing and Recruiting Plans

The Validate the Need Against the Workforce, Staffing and Recruiting Plans element is performed by the manager and may take one day to complete. This element requires the manager to review:

  • The workforce, succession, and staff acquisition plans;
  • The recruitment plan to identify the resources and sources for recruitment; and
  • The skills gap in the organization to understand what is needed.

It is important to note that the number of days for each step within the 80-day standard for the hiring element is a suggested timeframe. Agencies may need to adjust the number of days for each step while keeping within the 80-day standard for end-to-end hiring.
