OPM Set to Release Competency Model for Federal AI Workers

The Office of Personnel Management has announced that it will soon complete a competency model for hiring artificial intelligence personnel

In a memo issued on Monday, OPM disclosed that it issued an AI job analysis survey to gain a better grasp of the topic while working on an AI work competency model to attract, recruit and hire skilled individuals. 

The agency has been working to comply with a mandate in the AI in Government Act of 2020, requiring the agency to come up with an estimate of the number of AI employees needed by each federal agency, Nextgov/FCW reported.

Daniel Ho, director of Stanford Law School’s RegLab and a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered AI, said guidance from OPM will help address the lack of AI talent in federal agencies.

Besides working on the competency model, the OPM has also been engaged in helping empower the federal cyber workforce. It introduced two new dashboards in April 2023 to address cybersecurity workforce challenges and close the cybersecurity skills gap.
