A review of the Office of Personnel Management and its potential merger into the General Services Administration is complete. The National Academy of Public Administration says transferring some OPM duties to the Office of Management and Budget and merging others into GSA would not have fixed problems at the agency.

  • Former OPM Acting Director Michael Rigas said he agrees with many of NAPA’s recommendations, as they started during his tenure at OPM and OMB.
  • Rigas said he and his team put the merger on hold under his tenure at OPM because Congress did not act on the administration’s legislative proposal, so they pivoted to supporting OPM as a standalone entity in response to the urgent need for reform at the agency.
  • Rigas said Congress should revisit removing personnel oversight responsibility from the Deputy Director for Management role because it already encompasses so many other responsibilities.
