FMA Washington Report: July 12, 2021

This report provides an update on issues affecting federal managers. As always, I encourage you to visit www.fedmanagers.org on a regular basis for more information on these and other matters.

Also, be sure to look for the FMA Grassroots Update, where we offer links to action letters and FMA-PAC matters we do not address in the Washington Report. The grassroots newsletter is sent exclusively to non-governmental email addresses to avoid any Hatch Act violations. If you are not receiving it, contact the national office to provide your non-governmental email address.

Please feel free to provide feedback any time by emailing Adam Kay at akay@fedmanagers.org or by calling the National Office at (703) 683-8700. Thank you for your membership in FMA. It’s an honor to represent your interests before Congress and the administration.

Kiran Ahuja Confirmed As OPM Director


The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) exists as the federal governments’ Human Resources Agency, and as such has a critical mission. Unfortunately, OPM has had eight directors, or acting directors, in the past five years, and frequent turnover at the top is far from beneficial. FMA was pleased to support the nomination of Kiran Ahuja for OPM Director, and endorsed her nomination as soon as she was put forward. Craig Carter, FMA National President, had the following to say in a press release supporting Director Ahuja’s confirmation.
