OPM Seeks to Further Digitize Employee Tracking in Federal Gov’t

1 min read

The Office of Personnel Management is using an in-house app to track federal employee performance and is working to grow the digital tool's adoption next year, Nextgov reported Friday.

The agency began digitizing its employee performance assessments in 2012, and has now implemented its USA Performance app across 35 federal government agencies, covering about 35,000 employees. M.C. Price, associate chief information officer for infrastructure at OPM, said the task to digitize the process was complex.

“It was very complex to digitize it and to meet all the agency requirements on the different forms," he said.

Associated officials told NextGov the agency expects to add 41K employees to the system in 2020.
