OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT 5 CFR Parts 337, 576, 792, 831, and 842 RIN 3206–AM69 Human Resources Management Reporting Requirements Office of Personnel Management. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing final regulations that would remove regulatory requirements for Federal agencies to submit reports to OPM relating to their implementation of certain human resources management programs and authorities. DATES: January 4, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jan Chisolm-King, by telephone at (202) 606–1958 or by email at janet.chisolmking@opm.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing final regulations to eliminate several reporting requirements for Federal agencies, in accordance with Executive Order 13583 of August 18, 2011, entitled ‘‘Establishing a Coordinated Government-Wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce.’’ This Executive order includes a requirement that OPM: wgreen on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: ‘‘review applicable directives to agencies related to the development or submission of agency human capital and other workforce plans and reports in connection with recruitment, hiring, promotion, retention, professional development, and training policies and practices, and develop a strategy for consolidating such agency plans and reports where appropriate and permitted by law . . .’’ This direction is similar in nature to a separate requirement set forth in the Government Performance Results Act VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:14 Dec 03, 2015 Jkt 238001 Modernization Act of 2010 (Public Law 111–352), to identify at least 10 percent of agency reports to Congress as duplicative or outdated in FY 2013, which is consistent with the requirement to eliminate unnecessary reporting. This final rule removes or amends the provisions of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, listed below, which require agency reports to OPM that we have determined are no longer necessary. • Section 337.305 requires agencies to send OPM a copy of the annual reports they are required by 5 U.S.C. 3319(d) to send to Congress in each of the first three years after establishing a category rating system. By a memorandum to agencies dated May 11, 2010, the President implemented certain items related to Federal hiring reform. In his memorandum, the President required agencies use a category rating system for evaluating and referring applicants by November 1, 2010. Because agencies not having a category system in place had to implement a system by November 1, 2010, the reporting requirement set forth at 5 U.S.C. 3319(d) was met by November 1, 2013, for many if not all of the agencies covered by the regulation. Therefore, because agencies have met their reporting requirement to Congress, the regulatory requirement to provide a copy of the report to OPM is no longer applicable. • Section 576.104 concerns reports on agencies’ use of Voluntary Separation Incentive Payments (VSIPs). Because OPM plans to obtain this data, when needed, from its central Enterprise Human Resources Integration (EHRI) database and also to ask agencies to address the effectiveness of VSIPs in their annual performance reports, we are removing paragraph (b). Currently, agencies are required to report on a quarterly basis, within 30 days of the end of each quarter, and a final report is due within 60 days of the authority’s expiration. This delay results in data that is three to four months after actual separation dates. It is clear that reporting to EHRI would be on the same or similar schedule to the reporting required by this regulation. Deleting the regulatory reporting requirement should not have an adverse effect on OPM’s ability to monitor agencies’ compliance with their approved plans. We also are amending the citation for part 576, as it contained a typographical error. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 • Section 792.204 requires agencies providing child care subsidies to report utilization data to OPM annually. As we have not discerned a sufficient level of interest in this information to justify requiring it on an annual basis, we are removing this requirement and requiring agencies to track the utilization of their funds and report the results to OPM as needed. • Sections 831.114 and 842.213 concern reports on agencies’ use of Voluntary Early Retirement Authority (VERAs). Because OPM plans to obtain this data, when needed, from its EHRI database and also ask agencies to address the effectiveness of VERAs in their annual performance reports, we are removing paragraph (p) from each of these provisions. Agencies are required to report on a quarterly basis, within 30 days of the end of each quarter, and a final report is due within 60 days of the authority’s expiration. This delay results in data that is three to four months after actual separation dates. It is clear that reporting to EHRI would be on the same or similar schedule to the reporting required by this regulation. Deleting the regulatory reporting requirement should not have an adverse effect on OPM’s ability to monitor agencies’ compliance with their approved plans. Summary of Comments OPM published a proposed rule on October 10, 2014 (79 FR 61266), to remove regulatory requirements for Federal agencies to submit reports to OPM relating to their implementation of certain human resources management programs and authorities. The comment period for the proposed rule closed on December 9, 2014. OPM received one comment. Response to Comment on the Proposed Regulation Comment: The Department of Homeland Security submitted the below comment with regard to Section 792.204 of the proposed regulation: ‘‘With the removal of required annual reporting regarding utilization of funds, how will OPM be assured that funds are used for the proposed purpose? Will there be a need for random additional audits?’’ Response: There will be no formal requirement for OPM to collect the data.

Human Resources Management Reporting Requirements

AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing final 
regulations that would remove regulatory requirements for Federal 
agencies to submit reports to OPM relating to their implementation of 
certain human resources management programs and authorities.

DATES: January 4, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jan Chisolm-King, by telephone at 
(202) 606-1958 or by email at janet.chisolm-king@opm.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is 
issuing final regulations to eliminate several reporting requirements 
for Federal agencies, in accordance with Executive Order 13583 of 
August 18, 2011, entitled ``Establishing a Coordinated Government-Wide 
Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal 
Workforce.'' This Executive order includes a requirement that OPM:

``review applicable directives to agencies related to the 
development or submission of agency human capital and other 
workforce plans and reports in connection with recruitment, hiring, 
promotion, retention, professional development, and training 
policies and practices, and develop a strategy for consolidating 
such agency plans and reports where appropriate and permitted by law 
. . .''

This direction is similar in nature to a separate requirement set forth 
in the Government Performance Results Act Modernization Act of 2010 
(Public Law 111-352), to identify at least 10 percent of agency reports 
to Congress as duplicative or outdated in FY 2013, which is consistent 
with the requirement to eliminate unnecessary reporting.
    This final rule removes or amends the provisions of title 5, Code 
of Federal Regulations, listed below, which require agency reports to 
OPM that we have determined are no longer necessary.
     Section 337.305 requires agencies to send OPM a copy of 
the annual reports they are required by 5 U.S.C. 3319(d) to send to 
Congress in each of the first three years after establishing a category 
rating system. By a memorandum to agencies dated May 11, 2010, the 
President implemented certain items related to Federal hiring reform. 
In his memorandum, the President required agencies use a category 
rating system for evaluating and referring applicants by November 1, 
2010. Because agencies not having a category system in place had to 
implement a system by November 1, 2010, the reporting requirement set 
forth at 5 U.S.C. 3319(d) was met by November 1, 2013, for many if not 
all of the agencies covered by the regulation. Therefore, because 
agencies have met their reporting requirement to Congress, the 
regulatory requirement to provide a copy of the report to OPM is no 
longer applicable.
     Section 576.104 concerns reports on agencies' use of 
Voluntary Separation Incentive Payments (VSIPs). Because OPM plans to 
obtain this data, when needed, from its central Enterprise Human 
Resources Integration (EHRI) database and also to ask agencies to 
address the effectiveness of VSIPs in their annual performance reports, 
we are removing paragraph (b). Currently, agencies are required to 
report on a quarterly basis, within 30 days of the end of each quarter, 
and a final report is due within 60 days of the authority's expiration. 
This delay results in data that is three to four months after actual 
separation dates. It is clear that reporting to EHRI would be on the 
same or similar schedule to the reporting required by this regulation. 
Deleting the regulatory reporting requirement should not have an 
adverse effect on OPM's ability to monitor agencies' compliance with 
their approved plans. We also are amending the citation for part 576, 
as it contained a typographical error.
     Section 792.204 requires agencies providing child care 
subsidies to report utilization data to OPM annually. As we have not 
discerned a sufficient level of interest in this information to justify 
requiring it on an annual basis, we are removing this requirement and 
requiring agencies to track the utilization of their funds and report 
the results to OPM as needed.
     Sections 831.114 and 842.213 concern reports on agencies' 
use of Voluntary Early Retirement Authority (VERAs). Because OPM plans 
to obtain this data, when needed, from its EHRI database and also ask 
agencies to address the effectiveness of VERAs in their annual 
performance reports, we are removing paragraph (p) from each of these 
provisions. Agencies are required to report on a quarterly basis, 
within 30 days of the end of each quarter, and a final report is due 
within 60 days of the authority's expiration. This delay results in 
data that is three to four months after actual separation dates. It is 
clear that reporting to EHRI would be on the same or similar schedule 
to the reporting required by this regulation. Deleting the regulatory 
reporting requirement should not have an adverse effect on OPM's 
ability to monitor agencies' compliance with their approved plans.

Summary of Comments

    OPM published a proposed rule on October 10, 2014 (79 FR 61266), to 
remove regulatory requirements for Federal agencies to submit reports 
to OPM relating to their implementation of certain human resources 
management programs and authorities. The comment period for the 
proposed rule closed on December 9, 2014. OPM received one comment.

Response to Comment on the Proposed Regulation

    Comment: The Department of Homeland Security submitted the below 
comment with regard to Section 792.204 of the proposed regulation:
    ``With the removal of required annual reporting regarding 
utilization of funds, how will OPM be assured that funds are used for 
the proposed purpose? Will there be a need for random additional 
audits?''
    Response: There will be no formal requirement for OPM to collect 
the data. However, OPM will coordinate with agencies that have a Child 
Care Subsidy Program to continue to informally

[[Page 75786]]

collect data. Currently, there are no plans in place for any formal 
audits at this time.
