Assessment of Public Law 106-303:
The Role of Personnel Flexibilities in Strengthening GAO's Human Capital
GAO-03-954SP: Published: Jun 27, 2003. Publicly Released: Jun 27, 2003.
Leading public organizations here and abroud have found that strategic human capital management must be the centerpiece of any serious change management initiative and effort to transform the culture of government agancies. GAO is not immune to these challenges facing the federal government. Over the past 3 years, however, we have made considerable progress toward addressing a number of our major human capital challenges through various initiatives. While many of the initiatives were administrative in nature, the additional flexibilities that the Congress authorized in Public Law 106-303 have helped to ensure that we have the right staff, with the right skills, in the right locations to better meet the needs of the Congress and the American people.
