OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT


Announcement of Public Meeting

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Notice of meeting.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Office of Personnel Management will hold a public meeting 
on June 25, 2010, as part of its hiring reform initiative to hear and 
consider views on whether normal, competitive hiring is an effective 
avenue for bringing recent college graduates into the Federal 
workforce. On May 11, 2010, President Obama issued a Memorandum for the 
Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies in which he stated that 
``the Federal Government must recruit and hire highly qualified 
employees and public service should be a career of choice for the most 
talented Americans.'' This public meeting will constitute one phase of 
that initiative.

DATES: The meeting will occur on June 25, 2010, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
at the Office of Personnel Management, Campbell Auditorium, 1900 E 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20415. Notice of this meeting is published 
well in advance of the meeting to give sufficient notice to interested 
parties. Members of the public wishing to make an oral presentation at 
the hearing must submit a written statement on the issue(s) they would 
like to present, as well as a written request to make an oral 
presentation at the meeting, on or before June 18, 2010. Members of the 
public wishing to submit written statements only, must submit such 
statements by 5 p.m. on June 24, 2010.

ADDRESSES: The meeting will be held at the Office of Personnel 
Management, Campbell Auditorium, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 
20415. Send written statements and, if desired, requests to make an 
oral presentation to Ms. Angela Bailey, 1900 E Street, NW., Room 6551, 
Washington, DC 20415 or hiringevent@opm.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Angela Bailey, Deputy Associate 
Director for Recruitment and Diversity. She can be reached on 202-606-
8097, Angela.Bailey@opm.gov, and at the address listed above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Objective: The purpose of this meeting is (1) to hear and consider 
views on whether normal, competitive hiring is an effective avenue for 
bringing recent college graduates into the Federal workforce and, if 
so, why that is the case; (2) to ascertain from those who believe that 
it is not effective, whether this presents a problem for the Federal 
Government that is sufficiently significant to warrant action or 
changes to policy; and (3) if action or changes in policy are 
warranted, to determine what change should be effected and by whom.
    Panel Discussions: The meeting will commence with a series of 
panels to discuss these issues, comprised of individuals from a broad 
variety of organizations with an interest in Federal hiring.
    Public Presentations: Any member of the public may request to make 
an oral presentation at the hearing. Any such request must be in 
writing and be accompanied by a written statement addressing the 
issue(s) on which the individual would like to present. Requests to 
make an oral presentation and the accompanying written statement must 
reach Ms. Angela Bailey, Deputy Associate Director for Recruitment and 
Diversity, on or before June 18, 2010. Individuals who do not wish to 
make an oral presentation but would like to submit a written statement 
for consideration must ensure that their statement is received by Ms. 
Bailey no later than 5 p.m. on June 24, 2010. Submission by e-mail or 
by a delivery service such as Fedex or UPS is preferred to ensure 
delivery on time. Oral presentations will be limited to 5 minutes. 
Members of the public who submit written statements need not make an 
oral presentation at the hearing. All written statements and oral 
presentations will become part of the record of proceedings and 
deliberations.
