Washington, DC - The fourth annual Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCO) Council Report was issued today by U.S. Office of Personnel Management Director Linda M. Springer. The Report includes information on the Council's year of growth, and it reinforces the Council's commitment to accomplishing the federal government's human capital objectives. In addition, the CHCO Council made important improvements to its overall organization in Fiscal Year 2006.
"The CHCO Council plays a valuable role in shaping the federal workforce to meet its complex challenges," said Springer. "The changes to the Council, as outlined in this year's CHCO report, allow it to be even more adaptable and responsive to the needs of federal agencies and their workforces."
The three main changes to the Council's structure and organization made in Fiscal Year 2006 include:
"The CHCO Council must be on the cutting edge of change," said Springer. "These three changes give the Council the flexibility needed to help the CHCOs maintain their effectiveness."
The 25-member Council is composed of the Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the Deputy Director for Management of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the CHCOs of the 15 Executive departments, and the CHCOs of additional agencies and the Small Agency Council, as designated by the OPM Director.
