Oak Park’s own Danny Davis (D.-IL) and a senator (D.-somewhere else) have apparently helped find the answer to our problems:
The Office of Personnel Management plans to establish a new centralized office to oversee Senior Executive Service policies and standards and help agencies improve their recruitment and mentoring programs.
Nancy Kichak, associate director of OPMs strategic human resources division, told Federal Times Wednesday that the office will be similar to one proposed in bills introduced by Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii, and Rep. Danny Davis, D-Ill., and will consolidate operations that are now scattered throughout OPM.
This will be one location, one office that folks can go to if they want answers on SES or senior level and scientific or technical [SL/ST position] issues, Kichak said. In the past, folks have expressed confusion over whether to call [OPMs] operational office or the policy office, and now theyll know to just call the SES office.
And folks are grateful, believe me. It’s just another step towards heaven on earth, when there will be one location, one office where we can find answers to EVERYTHING! Soon we will know to just call THAT OFFICE!
O happy day.
