Regulatory Affairs

The OES Regulatory Affairs unit is responsible for the review and editing of all OPM regulations and notices that require Federal Register publication. Regulatory Affairs also provides support to OPM’s program offices in the drafting stage of regulations, and coordinates with the Office of the Federal Register once a new regulation is fully approved and ready for publishing. Additionally, the unit acts as OPM’s liaison with the Office of Management and Budget when draft regulations are ready for the interagency review process. Twice each year, Regulatory Affairs reviews and assembles OPM’s submission for the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions, which is a report that publishes a listing of every regulatory and deregulatory action that Federal agencies are drafting or considering for publication in the coming year.

For regulatory inquiries please contact Stephen Hickman at or 202-606-1973.

International Affairs

International Affairs supports and coordinates all international activities of OPM.

International Delegation Visits – OPM arranges delegation meetings for countries around the world. Delegations come to OPM seeking to understand the Personnel system of the Federal Government. Foreign visitors ask to learn from OPM subject matter experts about, for example, Federal policy on recruitment and hiring, training and development, pay and leave policies, and executive leadership. Speakers and topics vary, depending on what the group requests. Delegations that do not speak fluent English will bring an interpreter. The knowledge and understanding of the international visitors varies from novice who want a general overview to those seeking an interactive dialogue and to learn best practices. It is a special opportunity to teach others about OPM’s core values and the merit system principles that OPM employees strive to preserve in representing the Federal Government.
