OPM Announces CHCO Council Changes

In a memo entitled “Chief Human Capital Officers and Council Future Composition,” sent to all federal agency and department heads, new U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) director Jeff Pon announced that he will increasingly consult with members of the CHCO Council (the body comprised of federal agencies’ Chief Human Capital Officers), in keeping with a view of the body as more decisional than informational.

“President Trump, as well as his two predecessors, recognized in their President’s Management Agendas that the government’s workforce is one of the Nation’s most valuable assets.  I intend to underscore this focus,” Pon said in the memo, distributed yesterday.

“In order to effectively support the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), I believe the role of the CHCO should be assigned to an individual at a very senior-level who has the trust of the Secretary or agency head and serves as an integral part of the leadership team,” Pon continued. “The CHCO should share accountability with the other members of the leadership team for the agency’s bottom line performance, mission results, accountability, and best use of taxpayer money.”

Pon concluded, “As the OPM Director and CHCO Council Chair, I intend to consult with CHCO Council members periodically on issues facing the civil service. Therefore, I strongly encourage agency heads to ensure that the designated CHCO for his/her agency meets the criteria above.”
