Last week, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issued guidance on national security professional development interagency personnel rotations. On June 15, Acting Director Beth F. Cobert announced OPM’s guidance aimed at assisting participating agencies in meeting the requirement mandated by section 1107(e) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013.
The guidance encourages agencies to give “strong preference” to national security executive candidates who have completed interagency rotations when filling senior positions within the interagency community of interest. Agencies are also required to provide rotation opportunities for employees “to ensure a sufficient pool of qualified individuals” exists.
