Federal Manager's Daily Report

The 24 Cabinet departments and largest agencies have posted the first reports on actions they have taken and are planning to take for their two-year priority goals under the President’s Management Agenda.

GSA, for example, said that by the end of fiscal 2023 it will have developed “national workspace portfolio plans” that will “better reflect the changing needs of the post-pandemic federal workforce . . . As agencies modify their physical footprint, GSA will right-size its inventory to fully use its federally owned assets, backfill or terminate vacant leased space, and dispose of the properties necessary to achieve an optimized portfolio,” it said.

Other top priorities for action in that period include increasing adoption by agencies of its identity verification solutions and continuing to shift the federal fleet to zero-emission vehicles.

For OPM, topics include a number of recruitment and hiring initiatives, including for early-career workers, military spouses and those with disabilities; and “using existing and new workplace incentives and flexibilities put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

OPM also plans to issue rules on the use of salary history in the hiring and pay-setting processes as a means to address pay gaps by gender and race, as well as to issue guidance for agencies on conducting pay equity reviews; and to improve data collection on diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility and “create easy to use, insight-focused DEIA dashboards.”

The postings on performance.gov also pull together agency strategic plans, performance plans and learning agendas.
