GAO calls strategic human capital management one of the government’s toughest management problems. It’s on the GAO’s High-Risk List, and it’s a common thread throughout many of the other challenges on the High-Risk List too.

  • Candice Wright, Acting Director for Science, Technology Assessment and Analytics at GAO, testified to the House Science Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations about strengthening the science and technology workforce, highlighting some of the longstanding issues GAO has seen regarding human capital management, particularly for agencies with science and technology missions.
  • Wright said agencies often struggle to attract and retain a workforce that meets the needs of future missions because the process of workforce planning is often lacking, agencies are not necessarily utilizing the full spectrum of hiring authorities available to them and federal work environment factors are significant.
