The Office of Personnel Management on Monday released its 2011 capital asset plans to ensure its budgetary and resource decisions are in line with the Obama administration's priorities, and the plans include several notable investments in information technology.
The plans include revamping USAJobs.gov, in part by creating a new Recruit.gov website intended to promote the unique identity of the federal government as an employer, as well as a new training module for recruiters and a career discovery tool to assist applicants in determining the occupations and agencies that best suit their skills and needs, OPM said.
OPM also laid out plans to create a health claims data warehouse that will collect, store and analyze health claims and other information for employees covered by the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program. The agency also plans to continue moving forward on its retirement systems modernization project as well as a program at the Federal Investigative Services that will transform the business processes and technology that support background investigations. Other notable technology-driven projects include streamlining and automating employee personnel records governmentwide and expanding human resources line-of-business priorities, according to the plans.
