SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 was one phase of 
that initiative.
    The purpose of this meeting was (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. The 
transcripts from that public hearing are now available at http://www.chcoc.gov/documents/DisplayDocument.aspx?PublicDocID=195. Members 
of the public are invited to provide any further comments they wish 
addressing the three issues presented above, and, in particular, to 
respond to comments made at the hearing. You may submit your written 
comments to Ms. Angela Bailey, Deputy Associate Director for 
Recruitment and Diversity, on or before September 29, 2010, to the 
address listed above. Please limit your statements to no more than five 
pages. All written statements and oral presentations will become part 
of the record of proceedings and deliberations.

U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
John Berry,
Director.
