OPM psychologists are available to provide job analysis and competency modeling services for single or multiple occupations within an agency.  Services include (1) conducting focus groups and site visits, (2) development and administration of customized surveys to collect occupational task and competency data, and (3) data analysis and documentation of results according to all legal and professional guidelines.  Competency models developed as a result of an occupational analysis provide the foundation for the design of personnel selection, career development, and performance management tools for all occupations, including mission-critical occupations and leadership positions.  OPM also offers Competency Gap Analysis services to allow agencies to identify critical needs for training, development, and recruitment of staff.
