The Government Accountability Office’s newest High-Risk List shows improvement in seven areas, but Strategic Human Capital Management is one of the areas that is backsliding.

  • Chris Mihm, Managing Director of Strategic Issues at GAO, said one reason human capital went back in the leadership area is that OPM had an acting director for 18 of the last 24 months and also suspended annual human capital reviews due to the pandemic.
  • Mihm said the top three “low-hanging fruit” tasks OPM can start with to improve are the following: restart the human capital reviews; make sure the personnel classification system in the federal government is fit for purpose in the modern world; and help agencies identify and execute on the best hiring authorities.
