Just as the pivotal efforts of Federal workers have helped shape America into the world leader it is today, the early efforts of American civil service leaders helped secure a truly American legacy—a merit-based hiring system where fairness, equal access, and protection for all Federal employees ensure a highly effective and non-partisan force to be reckoned with.
We invite you to take a closer look at OPM's long and rich history in more detail. Meet the past leaders who helped create the merit system principles, shaped the modern Federal Service, and enabled OPM to grow into the agency it is today. And please share our tribute to America's greatest civil service champion, Theodore Roosevelt.
