The Office of Personnel Management today remembered those who died in the attacks in New York and the Pentagon.
Because of "localized flooding," the Office of Personnel Management announced federal agency employees in the Washington, D.C. area have the option for using unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework.
Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe warned senators that the Postal Service would stop delivering mail by next August unless Congress authorizes sweeping changes. After paying October's bills, Donahoe said the agency would have a week's worth of cash left. Meanwhile, the White House said it would propose reforms soon.
On today's Federal Drive: The Labor Department and contractors are butting heads over a new final rule, the Army makes progress on digitizing Arlington Cemetery records and the Combined Federal Campaign kicks off its 50th year.
The Office of Personnel Management said shared registers will make it easier and quicker for agencies to fill openings for entry-level budget analysts and IT specialists. OPM will send requesting agencies a list of the "best qualified" candidates. Agencies then will have 30 days to review the applications.
On today's Federal Drive: GSA seeks to dispel myths about its green contracting rules, OPM prepares to revamp its federal jobs website and new job-creating guidelines for agencies from the White House.
The Office of Personnel Management will roll out the latest version of the Web portal USAJobs.gov in October. OPM said USAJobs.gov will protect applicant data better and will make it easier for agencies to mine data, create reports and refine their recruitment strategies.
Military widows and spouses of disabled veterans will be able to take all the time they need to apply for federal jobs under a special hiring exemption. The current two-year limit on spouses' noncompetitive hiring authority expires at the end of September.
On today's Federal Drive: OPM announced that despite the weak economy, agency incentive payments to recruit and retain workers actually increased. Plus, the Commission on Wartime Contracting releases its final report and the head of the ATF bureau steps down after a controversial gun-loan program comes to light.
Days after Hurricane Irene blew through the East Coast, some federal buildings along the East Coast remain closed Tuesday
The Federal Emergency Management Agency, facing the prospect of its disaster relief fund running dry by the end of the current fiscal year, has decided to use the fund only for immediate needs related to Hurricane Irene. The decision puts any new spending for projects related to previous disasters on hold until Congress appropriates more money.
The government is about to launch a new diversity initiative. So what does that mean? Apparently, it depends on who you ask, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
On today's Federal Drive: in Hurricane Irene's aftermath, some federal buildings are closed because of power outages, the Energy Department is guaranteeing loans for a solar power project and the National Transportation Safety Board is studying experimental aircraft.
Recent events have elevated the importance of telework in the federal government ranks.
The General Services Administration is working with power companies from Maryland to Massachusetts to fix the problems. OPM said agencies in Washington are open as usual Monday and employees can use unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework if necessary.
The Office of Personnel Management and the General Services Administration are providing information for federal employees in the event Hurricane Irene causes federal building closures.
Merit Systems Protection Board Executive Director Steve Lenkart and John Crum, director of MSPB's Office of Policy and Evaluation, join host Debra Roth to talk about the challenges facing the agency.
