The Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board — which manages federal employees' Thrift Savings Plan accounts — approved a 19 percent budget increase for the coming year, allowing it to fund new cybersecurity and hiring initiatives. The $170.5 million budget, which is more than $27 million above 2012 levels, was agreed to following a "rigorous review," the board's director of external affairs, Kim Weaver, told In Depth with Francis Rose.

Shrinking budgets and a tough economy are posing problems for federal chief human capital officers, according to a new survey by the Partnership for Public Service and Grant Thornton. The report makes multiple recommendations as agencies struggle to replace a quickly retiring workforce and deal with staffing reductions due to budget constraints.
Fourteen percent of the Defense Department's civilian workforce is disabled, compared with 11 percent governmentwide.
Hispanics accounted for more than eight in 100 civilian federal employees in 2011. The minority group also made gains in the Senior Executive Service and represented the third largest ethnic group in the federal government.
The federal government now employs more full-time workers with disabilities than it has at any time over the past 20 years, according to a new report from the Office of Personnel Management. President Barack Obama pledged in 2010 to hire 100,00 additional people with disabilities over the next five years.
