Those vendors pitched their ideas to OPM at an Industry Day earlier this year, and now the agency's gearing up for its fifth attempt to modernize its system. Valerie Melvin is Director of Information Management and Technology Resources Issues at the Government Accountability Office. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she said OPM needs to weigh its options carefully so the fifth try is the one that finally sticks.

Valerie Melvin, Director of Information Management and Technology Resources Issues, GAO

The National Technical Information Service is supposed to be a repository where federal agencies can find -- and buy -- new research publications. But lately the new research from NTIS isn't new, and 95 percent of it's available online for free. Valerie Melvin is Director of Information Management and Technology Resources Issues at the Government Accountability Office. She testified about the agency's financial future before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on Financial and Contracting Oversight. Valerie shared her conclusions on In Depth with Francis Rose.

Will sequestration, retirement wave derail OPM's backlog goal

The Office of Personnel Management has made steady progress chipping away at a longstanding backlog of retirement claims. But Oversight Committee lawmakers and other government watchdogs remain concerned that the absence of a long-term plan to overhaul the mostly paper-based process combined with across-the-board budget cuts and a lack of strong leadership within OPM could stall or derail the progress the agency has made.

Senators take OPM to task over long wait for pensions

The Office of Personnel Management has a new strategy for tackling its backlog of 62,000 retirement applications. But, after 25 years of hearing such promises, lawmakers are skeptical.
