Rob Shriver

Acting Director

Rob Shriver serves as Acting Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Rob previously served as OPM Deputy Director, following his nomination by President Joe Biden and confirmation by the U.S. Senate on December 20, 2022.  

Rob brings more than three decades of experience in public service, private industry, and labor relations. Rob is a champion for the federal workforce and helps ensure that OPM supports federal workers “from hire to retire.” In fact, Rob has served in various roles at OPM for nearly nine years, across four different departments.  

Rob is passionate about making the federal government work better for the American people. Rob understands OPM’s vital role supporting the federal workforce and federal agencies, including his focus on early career talent recruiting and hiring; improving pay for blue collar workers and first responders; protecting career civil servants from undue partisan influence; and advancing government-wide diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. 

During the Obama Administration, Rob served in multiple roles across OPM. He helped expand equality for LGBTQ+ federal employees, improved federal labor relations, led several initiatives to improve the federal hiring process, and created a major new program under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) called the Multi-State Plan Program. Throughout his long service with OPM, Rob has worked every day to strengthen the agency, promote innovation, and accelerate modernization for the federal workforce to make OPM and government work better. 

In addition to federal service, Rob has worked in state government, private industry, and labor relations. He helped improve health care service at the District of Columbia Health Benefit Exchange Authority and improved health benefit exchanges in the private sector. Rob began his career as an Assistant Counsel for the National Treasury Employees Union litigating cases on behalf of federal employees at all levels from 1996-2009. 

Rob graduated with a B.A. in International Studies from Virginia Tech and his J.D. from George Washington University Law School. He lives in Alexandria, VA, with his wife JoAnn and three children Robby, Mitch, and Justine.
