U.S. OPM Selects Plateau Systems for Human Capital Management Initiative

Feb 14, 2006

Plateau Systems, a provider of software for developing, managing, and optimizing organizational skills and talent, has announced that the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) awarded Plateau Systems a contract for Plateau Performance Management to support all federal agencies. Under the contract, Plateau will provide an on-demand performance management system to assess competencies, target development, and enable career planning. The system will support agencies as they comply with the Human Capital goals in the President's Management Agenda (PMA) and enable them to close skills gaps in mission critical occupations.

The procurement process was managed by OPM. OPM is the lead agency for Human Capital Management, part of the PMA. Initially, the system will support two critical job roles that cross all federal agencies: Human Resources specialists, comprised of 22,650 total employees; and Members of the Information Technology community, which includes 65,800 employees. The system will be available February 28 for HR specialist competency assessments. The second phase of the system for members of the Information Technology community will be available by the end of June and will provide support for assessments, competency gap analysis, and personal development and career planning.
