Voinovich bill would create a post to manage work force shrinkage

Congress may consider a bill that would call for federal agencies to appoint a chief human capital officer to address the problems of a dwindling federal IT work force.

Republican Sen. George V. Voinovich of Ohio plans to sponsor a bill establishing the post and giving agencies funds to offer recruitment and retention incentives.

The human capital managers would make up a new CHCO Council led by Office of Personnel Management director Kay Cole James, said a staff member for the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee.

'With initiatives included in my bill to recruit and retain qualified employees, it is my hope that we can convince more IT professionals that the federal government is a great place to pursue a career,' Voinovich said.
