OPM issues final rule re: Information Technology Exchange Program.
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has issued a final rule to implement certain provisions of the E-Government Act of 2002, P.L. 107-347 that authorizes the Federal Information Technology Exchange Program. This program grants authority to allow federal agency information technology employees to serve in a private sector business organization for purposes of receiving advanced technical training. Similarly, private sector employees may be detailed to a federal government agency, provided these details serve the strategic program goals of the agency. Such details are to be for a limited time period between three months and one year, and may be extended in three-month increments for a total of not more than one additional year. OPM published a proposed rule on January 15, 2004 (See 69 Fed. Reg. 2308, 1/15/04); 32 comments were received and many comments were integrated into the final rule. The rule became effective September 14, 2005. (70 Fed. Reg. 47711, 8/15/05)
