Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

The Senior Executive Service is 35-years old, and yet it's never really worked the way it was intended. It didn't develop into the mobile cadre of managers who move from agency to agency. The Brookings Institution and Booz Allen Hamilton are holding a brainstorming session today with government leaders to discuss whether, and how, the SES should change. Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp spoke with two of the organizers, Ron Sanders and Bob Hale of Booz Allen on the Federal Drive with Tom Temin. Sanders says the SES has come under a lot of stress and scrutiny of late, making now the right time for change.

Bill making it easier to fire Senior Executives passes first test

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee members approved the Senior Executive Service Accountability Act. The bill would reform the law governing the Senior Executive Service, in part by doubling the probation period of SES members and requiring agencies to justify the positions of SES staff every two years.

SESers leaving due more to age, time than other factors

You're fired! And other federal management fantasies

The Veterans Affairs Department recently revealed that none of its senior executives had gotten a rating below fully successful in the past four years. While that may seem shocking, the VA is not that out of the ordinary. Sub-par ratings for SES members are not common and firing them is even less common, says former CHCO Jeff Neal.
