The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) plans to adopt a phased approach to deploying a human capital dashboard over the next three to five months, Federal News Network reported Wednesday.
Jason Barke, acting principal deputy associate director for OPM’s employee services, said agency personnel are performing security and usability testing to ensure that data on the platform is shareable.
“It’s been in the works, from idea to where we are now, probably about 18 months,” he said of the dashboard during a virtual event Wednesday.
“We continue to refine, and we’ve continued to do some usability as we’ve gone out and shared it with different agencies. We’ve gotten good feedback when they say ‘we should add this, we should add this.’ And so we’ve gotten to a pretty good spot right now where we feel a phase one kind of deployment is about where we’re going to be at,” Barke added.
OPM plans to provide agencies limited access to the dashboard and will require two-factor authentication in order for users to access internal government-use data.
Barke said he worked with the agency’s data office to screen requests from agencies about the types of information that should appear in the platform.
