CIPS/IPMO UPDATE No. 2007-1                                       29 DECEMBER 2006

            c)  The DNI will have a very detailed Diversity Action Plan.  Diversity is seen as a mission imperative and will be part of nearly every initiative.

           d)  Family Advisory Boards have been established at the big intelligence agencies to ensure sufficient support for families while one of the parents is deployed.  Many of their actions are similar to what is already offered by each Military Department.

     e)  The DNI has also developed a number of Human Capital Legislative Proposals for

FY2008.  Most do not impact DOD employees but one will if adopted and enacted into law.  This is the proposal to permit employees to make lump sum payments to the Thrift Savings Plan from funds received from performance awards.  It will be especially important once we convert to an NSPS-like “pay for performance” system.

           f)  A Lean Six Sigma review of hiring procedures is underway to try to lower the average time between issuance of a referral list for civilian positions and selection to 45 days.

    g)  A Joint Human Capital – Security Summit to Streamline Security Requirements will

soon be held to focus on speeding the processing of clearances for applicants with close family members living overseas.  If successful, this initiative will increase the number of employees with foreign language abilities and foreign area knowledge.

    h)  The OPM is leading the President’s planning for a possible Influenza Pandemic.

DOD is following OPM’s direction.  The DNI is ensuring that agencies like CIA, which do not usually work with OPM, have also completed sufficient planning.

           i)  The DNI has initiated a Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program to better utilize the existing OPM PMF program.  The ODNI adds to the existing program rotational assignments within the IC as well as a few workyear spaces.  

           j)  For many years, the previous Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) had a group of honorary awards open to all IC members.  The ODNI is now converting that DCI program into a National Intelligence Awards program.  Additional awards are also expected to be proposed next year.

   B.   Status of Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence USD(I) Human Capital         Initiatives to Include the Revision of the Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System (DCIPS). The USD(I) established a new office in November of 2005, the Directorate of Professional Development and Readiness, to oversee and coordinate Human Capital issues and initiatives for the IC within DOD.  This Office:

          1)  Represents DOD on the DNI’s IC Chief Human Capital Officer (CHCO) Committee.

          2)  Co-chairs, with the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Civilian Personnel Policy), a Defense Intelligence Human Resource Board (DIHRB) that the Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff, G-2 sits on.
