Planning and Policy Analysis

Planning and Policy Analysis (PPA) provides the Director with reports, information and other analysis assessing program trends and policy issues that affect OPM. The scope of PPA analysis spans the full range of human resource management issues facing Federal agencies (such as workforce supply, pay, benefits, diversity) and involves a variety of analytical tools (including actuarial analysis, surveys, economic analysis, and policy analysis). A particular area of responsibility is the analysis of policy options, legislative changes and trends that affect OPM’s management of health and insurance benefits for Federal employees.
