OPM is great on the “What”, “When”, and “Why” of hiring timelines but fail on the “How.” I was talking to some DoD friends last month at an event and they noted how hiring is now taking TWICE as long, now that they have implemented USAStaffing (provided by OPM.) Of course their comments were not all negative. They did comment that their past certificates seemed to be randon selections from the applicant pool without any relationship to their job requirements. After their investment of $10s of millions with OPM, their certificates now contain candidates that at least are eligible and meet minimum qualifications. Wow! Progress in meeting hiring goals.
