House Examines ‘Viability’ of Federal Executives
July 11, 2014
House subcommittee members will examine the “viability” of the federal Senior Executive Service (SES) at a hearing Friday.
SES members might not have known there was a question about the ability of their workforce to continue, but that’s an inference that can be drawn by the title of the hearing: “The Viability of the Senior Executive Service.”
In an opening statement prepared for the hearing, Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.), chairman of the House federal workforce subcommittee, said “this Committee’s oversight work has shown that government continues to lack the quality executive leadership necessary to administer key government services and programs.”
