The Obama administration is set to release details of its plan to overhaul Senior Executive Service policies this fall, GovExec reported Tuesday.
Eric Katz writes a White House-formed advisory panel comprising of professionals with government and industry experience has submitted SES reform proposals to the Office of Management and Budget for evaluation.
The 24-member panel’s subcommittees developed strategies to address SES’ recruitment, hiring, retention and public service challenges, the publication reports.
Katz said the group held three meetings this year to create recommendations and each subcommittee met five or six times to brainstorm ideas.
Minor SES policy changes will take effect upon their release while significant reforms will require a presidential memorandum and a schedule to implement, the report said.
