Staffing to align with your agency's mission
OPM’s Human Resources Solutions organization can help your agency answer this critically important question.
Developing senior leaders in the U.S. Government through Leadership for a Democratic Society, Custom Programs and Interagency Courses.
OPM - in coordination with OMB - has issued a new Governmentwide SES performance appraisal system, designed through the collaboration of an interagency workgroup. The new SES appraisal system meets the SES performance management needs of agencies and their SES employees - providing a consistent and uniform framework for agencies to communicate expectations and evaluate the performance of SES members, particularly centering on the role and responsibility of SES employees to provide executive leadership. Specifically, the new SES appraisal system promotes greater consistency, clarity, transferability, and equity in the development of performance standards, the delivery of feedback, the derivation of ratings, and the link to compensation. The new SES appraisal system will also provide the necessary flexibility and capability for appropriate agency customization.
