Congress is taking steps to streamline the federal hiring process. It is about time. We have needed some movement along these lines for a long time. Even the Partnership for Public Service likes this one.
Here’s the article in the Federal Times
“The purpose of S. 1580, the Competitive Service Act of 2015, is to allow federal agencies to share their vetted lists of best-qualified candidates with other agencies who are looking to hire for a similar position. Allowing agencies to share these lists and use them to hire for similar positions will help reduce the duplicative work that agencies are forced to undertake by making a new job announcement and starting the hiring process from scratch.”
From the September 15, 2015 version.
