The Department of Homeland Security Challenges the Federal Civil Service System: Personnel Lessons from a Department’s Emergence
Author: RICHARD W. RYAN
Published in PAM, Vol. 8 No. 3
The establishment of a Department of Homeland Security has become an
opportunity for the reshaping of personnel rules governing federal employees, both those
entering the new department and throughout the federal service. Policy debates over the
department’s creation and management are giving voice to different perspectives on the
shape of human resources preferences in the new millennium. This paper examines the
recommendations and goals of competing political perspectives on reforming public
service personnel management and looks to the near future for potential impacts.
