The Office of Personnel Management wants the Chief Human Capital Officers to provide more organized attention to the 3R's: recruitment, relocation, and retention incentives.

OPM director John Berry outlined these requests in a follow-up memorandum to one released May 27.

In the latest memo, he asks the CHCO council to "establish a work group to develop recommendations for improving the administration and oversight of the 3Rs authorities with a special emphasis on developing approaches for measuring the cost-benefit of the 3Rs program to the government."

These groups are to report back to the OPM in no more than 90 days.

OPM also is asking agencies to review and update their 3Rs program.

The information collected during this process will be analyzed by OPM and presented to the CHCOs at an upcoming meeting, the memo states.
