Angela Bailey, chief human capital officer of the Department of Homeland Security, said during a Senate hearing that the agency intends to clarify its hiring regulations by spring 2020, Fedscoop reported Wednesday.

Bailey told the Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management Subcommittee that DHS is working with experts to identify the technical and leadership skills it needs and will invest up to $40K for training following the establishment of the DHS Cyber Talent Management System. She added that DHS will use the system to assess returning personnel’s private sector experience in order to clarify payment matters.

“We need to look at ways to make hiring or rehiring federal staff more flexible, so long as the agency has thought about the policies that they need to do it,” noted Yvonne Jones, director of the Government Accountability Office’s strategic issues team.
