To meet the needs of the American people, the Federal Government should engage in continuous efforts to become more effective and efficient. Therefore, a continual cycle of workforce planning is required to determine how the Federal workforce can best fulfill the various missions entrusted to government. At times, an analysis of the workforce may reveal the need for new skills and types of work, the need for fewer or more positions in different places throughout the country, and the need to design new ways of working to leverage technology. Agency leaders and human resources practitioners can shape the Federal workforce so that it is better able to serve the American people and fulfill the critical functions of governance.
