OPM Director Issues Statement on the Federal Career Intern Program

Washington, D.C.  --  “We believe the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) suit is unfortunate.  In light of the pending departure of hundreds of thousands of employees to retirement, the Federal government needs every available tool to ensure we have an effective workforce, including the Federal Career Intern Program (FCIP) which brings in approximately 10,000 employees each year,” said Linda M. Springer, Director, U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
