President Barack Obama pledged in 2010 to hire 100,00 additional people with disabilities over the next five years. While the Government Accountability Office reported in May the government was not on track to meet that goal, the director of OPM, John Berry, said the new report shows agencies are "moving smartly" toward fulfilling it.
