Federal workers, researchers and private citizens have until Jan. 31 to submit feedback in support of the President’s Management Agenda (PMA). The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has released a draft learning agenda to identify ways to coordinate implementation of President Biden’s management goals.
- Robert Shea, national managing principal for public policy at Grant Thornton and former associate director at OMB, explained that agencies will release learning agendas in the spring articulating major questions to support their missions, and while OMB is not required to do so, it has put out a learning agenda to help implement the Biden administration’s management priorities.
- Shea said the questions, which can be reviewed at performance.gov, focus on recruiting, retaining and engaging a diverse workforce, enhancing customer experience and improving equity.
- Shea said he will be interested to see the agencies’ learning agendas later to observe common challenges spanning government.
