To guide Government-wide efforts to support agency mission results with human capital strategies, OPM created the Human Capital Assessment and Accountability Framework (HCAAF). As required by the Chief Human Capital Officers Act of 2002, agencies are evaluated on their progress in meeting the HCAAF standards. The Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) provides one source of information for evaluating success in three essential systems included in the HCAAF:
OPM developed metrics for each of these systems, including four indices
based on items in the survey. For more information on these metrics, refer
to OPM’s website at:
Starting in 2007, agencies were required to administer all of the items in the HCAAF indices as part of the Federal Government’s Annual Employee Survey (AES). OPM now administers the FEVS annually, thus meeting agencies’ yearly AES commitment.
Commencing in 2002, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) began Government-wide administration of the Federal Human Capital Survey (FHCS). It is a tool to measure employees' perceptions of whether and to what extent; conditions characterizing successful organizations are present in their agencies.
