Washington, DC- U.S. Office of Personnel Management Director Linda M. Springer today reiterated the Administration's strong support for reforming the civil service from a longevity-based system to one that rewards performance.
"We continue to believe the proposed Working for America Draft Act does an effective job of addressing a comprehensive set of challenges that exist in the current civil service system. Its labor reforms are less expansive than reforms previously enacted for the Departments of Homeland Security and Defense which have unique mission requirements.
"We are paying particular attention to the experience of the more than 90,000 Federal employees who are currently under alternative pay systems. This focus will allow us to continue to make the case for further civil service reform."
