    We've released new mobile services and open data (APIs) for USAJOBS and the Washington, DC-area operating status. This release is part of our efforts to carry out the Administration's Digital Government Strategy, set to transform public-facing government services in line with 21st Century expectations.

    OPM Operating Status/OPM Alert

    OPM Alert is the official operating status app of the US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the only official OPM status app for the Washington, DC area. This free app provides a real time look at the current operating status for Federal Government offices in the Washington, DC area.

    With OPM's official operating status app you can:

    • View the current and active status of Federal agencies in the Washington, DC area
    • Sign up for notifications of status changes
    • Review an archive of previous status updates
    • Get the Washington, DC-area Dismissal and Closing Procedures issued by OPM

    Visit the apps store for your operating system or our OPM Alert Mobile App page.

    We are also releasing a set of operating status Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that will make it easier for organizations, including federal agencies, to make full use of operating status data. For more information on this API, visit our Current Status API page. Don't know what an API is? Check out

    USAJOBS for Android is the job site of the Federal government. Using our new Android app and improved iOS app, you can search and save job listings, receive updates on applications and job search agents and much more. Additionally, you can share what you find on USAJOBS on popular social networking sites or via email, all on your Android smartphone or tablet. Visit the apps store for your operating system or see our Mobile Apps page for more information.

    To accompany the two USAJOBS apps, we are releasing another API. The USAJOBS API is intended to broaden the reach of USAJOBS to commercial job boards, mobile apps and social media outlets that are interested in receiving and promoting Federal job opportunities. We're providing the API in two formats to ensure the data is openly accessible. Users of the API will be able to receive up to 5,000 jobs per request. Find additional information, including detailed documentation,on the USAJOBS Job Opportunity Announcements (JOA) REST API page.

    If you're a developer, we invite you to visit our Developer Center regularly. That's where we'll post information about new APIs.

    *I knew I was a bad wife and mother for invariably pushing my husband to the point of hating me or seeing me with the kids. But I never let my bad attitude towards him let me feel like I am the worst woman out there. So, I fought inside of me to change the bad attitude and win back my husband’s heart for over six years but could not until he threatened me with a divorce and a restraining order, not only to keep me away from him, but away from our kids.
    *Because I can’t stand losing them, I threw away my pride and went spiritual on myself with the aid of doctor wakina (, I was brought to light and made to understand that “it is of a great significant to make my husband happy and I must start by making myself happy”.
    *I boldly acknowledge the spiritual power doctor wakina carries that cured me from myself for four days and overturned my husband’s decisions. For over four months I have been having an entertaining moment with myself and family, a lot of things has changed both physical and spiritual. I say thank you Dr. Wakina for saving me from myself and restoring my marriage.
    *Love… Paris Tyne

    It was a dream come through when a traveled 4,530 miles just to see Dr. Wakina face to face and to also witness how he does the spell work that got many people talking all over the planet.
    I was happy for the reception I got in his spiritual temple. As a nervous woman, I was astonished the moment Dr. Wakina placed his hands on my forehead and showed me a vision and the future between me and my husband.
    According to the vision, the future between me and my husband lasted for eternity withought any negative effect or external interference.
    The reason why I am going public is because the visions and prophesies towards my entire house hold has already been manifested, today made it three months that Dr. Wakina proved himself to us and it is a thing of joy.
    I humbly share Doctor Wakina email address where he can be reached
    Eternally grateful.
