Comer Announces Hearing to Conduct Oversight Over OPM’s Operations
WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) will hold a full committee hearing titled “Oversight of Our Nation’s Largest Employer: Reviewing the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.” The hearing will examine the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) administration of human capital policy for the federal workforce and benefits for federal workers and their families, how OPM intends to strengthen the merit-based civil service system to ensure the federal bureaucracy works on behalf of the American people, and OPM’s implementation of healthcare provisions of the Postal Service Reform Act.
“Over two million Americans serve in the civilian federal workforce. OPM is the primary agency tasked with overseeing human resources and personnel management policy across the federal government. Holding OPM accountable is critical, and the Oversight Committee has a responsibility to ensure the agency is meeting their mission and stewarding taxpayer dollars,” said Chairman Comer. “Under Republican leadership, the Oversight Committee is committed to rooting out waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal government and all its agencies. I look forward to hearing from OPM leadership about the steps the agency is taking to reduce the risk of waste and improve their operations to the benefit of the American people.”
