NEWS: OPM Reminds Agencies of Guidance for 2020 Census

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing a Memorandum for Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies as a reminder to agencies that current employees may be able to accept employment with the Census Bureau during the 2020 census taking. This is being done so that agencies can ensure their employees understand the circumstances under which they may receive pay for more than one federal position, specifically short-term, temporary jobs affiliated with the 2020 Census.
