ACTION: Notice of a new system of records. AGENCY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) proposes to establish a new OPM system of records titled ‘‘Federal Competency Assessment Records.’’ This system of records contains information that OPM collects, maintains, and uses in the operation of competency assessment tools, including the OPM Competency Exploration for Development and Readiness (CEDAR) tool.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) proposes to establish a new system of records titled ‘‘OPM/Central-22 Federal Competency Assessment Records.’’ This system of records is being established in order to develop and make available to Federal agencies various competency assessment tools, in part, to meet the mandates of the Program Management Improvement Accountability Act (PMIAA). The PMIAA requires that OPM conduct a competency assessment of program managers and project managers throughout the Federal government to identify competency gaps. Competency assessment-related tools assist agencies in addressing functions of the Human Capital Framework (HCF) (5 CFR part 250(b)), and in addition to fulfilling legislative requirements of the PMIAA. The competency exploration and assessment tools were built with the intent of being used government-wide for many different occupations, in addition to meeting the program manager and project manager assessment requirements of the PMIAA. These tools are generally created and FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 disseminated in an online format with proper security applications in place for the safety of Federal workforce data. The use of the records in this system of records supports agencies in assessing current Federal staffing, skills, and competencies in order to focus on priority training and development areas. Such records, will help agencies to professionalize the critical workforce on an increasing basis, encouraging the application of education, training, and experience to inform critical thinking and expert analysis that will support decision-making and overcome challenges to program implementation and execution. The analysis from competency assessment tools will help to develop Federal employees via a career path that provides experience and mentorship opportunities designed to teach these skillsets. In addition, the HCF (5 CFR part 250(b)) requires agencies to execute several functions related to workforce analysis and planning; talent management; and skill gap closure, including using the OPM-designated method to identify gaps. Furthermore, Chief Human Capital Officers are responsible for workforce assessment, strategy, and development and are entitled to data and information supporting such efforts. Tools and applications that assess competency strengths and gaps will enable the human capital management processes used to cultivate and administer the workforce. It will also help agencies remain current with research and best practices, allow for proactive responses to change, and maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of Human Resource service delivery. OPM also has a statutory responsibility under 5 U.S.C. 1103(c) to guide, enable, and assess agency strategic human capital management processes to find best practices for assessing the management of human capital by federal agencies. The records in this system of records are necessary to administer competency assessment and exploration tools to enable individual and organizational strategies to address skill gaps and support employee development.

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Office of 
Personnel Management (OPM) proposes to establish a new OPM system of 
records titled ``Federal Competency Assessment Records.'' This system 
of records contains information that OPM collects, maintains, and uses 
in the operation of competency assessment tools, including the OPM 
Competency Exploration for Development and Readiness (CEDAR) tool. 
These records are collected and used for training and development 
purposes but are not to be used for employee performance ratings or for 
hiring and promotion decisions. This system of records will be included 
in the OPM's inventory of record systems.

DATES: Please submit comments on or before September 21, 2020. This new 
system is effective upon publication in the Federal Register, with the 
exception of the routine uses, which are effective September 24, 2020.

ADDRESSES: You may submit written comments by one of the following 
methods:
     Federal Rulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov.
    All submissions received must include the agency name and docket 
number for this Federal Register document. The general policy for 
comments and other submissions from members of the public is to make 
these submissions available for public viewing on the internet at

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 
5 U.S.C. 552a, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) proposes to 
establish a new system of records titled ``OPM/Central-22 Federal 
Competency Assessment Records.'' This system of records is being 
established in order to develop and make available to Federal agencies 
various competency assessment tools, in part, to meet the mandates of 
the Program Management Improvement Accountability Act (PMIAA). The 
PMIAA requires that OPM conduct a competency assessment of program 
managers and project managers throughout the Federal government to 
identify competency gaps.
    Competency assessment-related tools assist agencies in addressing 
functions of the Human Capital Framework (HCF) (5 CFR part 250(b)), and 
in addition to fulfilling legislative requirements of the PMIAA. The 
competency exploration and assessment tools were built with the intent 
of being used government-wide for many different occupations, in 
addition to meeting the program manager and project manager assessment 
requirements of the PMIAA. These tools are generally created and 
disseminated in an online format with proper security applications in 
place for the safety of Federal workforce data.
    The use of the records in this system of records supports agencies 
in assessing current Federal staffing, skills, and competencies in 
order to focus on priority training and development areas. Such 
records, will help agencies to professionalize the critical workforce 
on an increasing basis, encouraging the application of education, 
training, and experience to inform critical thinking and expert 
analysis that will support decision-making and overcome challenges to 
program implementation and execution. The analysis from competency 
assessment tools will help to develop Federal employees via a career 
path that provides experience and mentorship opportunities designed to 
teach these skillsets.
    In addition, the HCF (5 CFR part 250(b)) requires agencies to 
execute several functions related to workforce analysis and planning; 
talent management; and skill gap closure, including using the OPM-
designated method to identify gaps. Furthermore, Chief Human Capital 
Officers are responsible for workforce assessment, strategy, and 
development and are entitled to data and information supporting such 
efforts. Tools and applications that assess competency strengths and 
gaps will enable the human capital management processes used to 
cultivate and administer the workforce. It will also help agencies 
remain current with research and best practices, allow for proactive 
responses to change, and maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of 
Human Resource service delivery.
    OPM also has a statutory responsibility under 5 U.S.C. 1103(c) to 
guide, enable, and assess agency strategic human capital management 
processes to find best practices for assessing the management of human 
capital by federal agencies. The records in this system of records are 
necessary to administer competency assessment and exploration tools to 
enable individual and organizational strategies to address skill gaps 
and support employee development.
