Burrowing by political appointees targeted by OPM

The memo changes the current policy where OPM signs off on all appointments to the Senior Executive Service, but only approves non SES appointments during an election year. To see what else Berry had to say about the new policy, read the full story at FederalNewsRadio.com.
