U.S. Comptroller General Gene Dodaro and Ann Ebberts, CEO of the Association of Government Accountants, discuss what is needed right now in the federal oversight workforce, and the evolution of enterprise risk management.


Expanding the federal workforce is a top priority for government HR managers. Workforce was one of the key topics at this week’s AGA conference in Orlando. According to U.S. Comptroller General Gene Dodaro, the Government Accountability Office’s workforce needs to grow in order to maintain its missions, particularly in cybersecurity. “We’re looking for a wide range of cyber skills, people who can do anything from technical penetration testing or who look at exploiting vulnerabilities in agency systems, but importantly, people who can bring constructive solutions and recommendations,” said Dodaro. “Our goal… in all areas we look at, is not only to identify weaknesses but to bring positive change to make improvements in government and strengthen our government structure.” Ann Ebberts, CEO of the Association of Government Accountants, says that she’s seeing an increase in the need for experience with data analytics and visualization. “There’s so much data out there, are we harvesting it appropriately?” Ebberts said. “We don’t want to just see charts. Gone are the rows and columns. People learn, interpret and ingest data in a different way, and not everybody is the same. I would much rather see a picture than a lot of numbers.”
