Statement from OPM Director Linda M. Springer

“The Office of Personnel Management has been a long-standing advocate for personnel reform that provides employees with the benefits of contemporary performance and compensation practices.  We continue to believe that the provisions in the Homeland Security Act of 2002 are consistent with that objective and we oppose any efforts to revoke these authorities.”
