Washington, D.C. -- U.S. Office of Personnel Management Director Linda M. Springer today announced more than $700,000 in savings for America's taxpayers, the result of an internal efficiency study that supports keeping seven administrative positions in OPM's Human Capital Leadership and Merit System Accountability Division. The competition was performed under streamlined competition procedures as prescribed by OMB Circular A-76.
As part of the study, 11 employees participated in the process of developing a Most Efficient Organization (MEO), an initiative that looks at current business practices with the goals of improving service delivery and lowering the cost of providing service. The resulting MEO reduces the number of full-time equivalents (FTE) needed to perform these services from 11 to 7.5
"I am pleased with the results of the competition," said Springer." I look forward to improved service delivery and the cost savings associated with this competition."
Had the MEO indicated the work could not be performed at less cost and at the same level of quality, OPM would have been required to outsource the work to private contractors. Jobs studied in the MEO were those of program assistant, office automation assistant, secretary and human resources assistant.
The $700,000 savings produced by the competition cover a five-year period.
Our mission is to Recruit, Retain and Honor a World-Class Workforce to Serve the American People. OPM supports U.S. agencies with personnel services and policy leadership including staffing tools, guidance on labor-management relations and programs to improve work force performance.
