To maximize effectiveness, broaden perspectives and potential, and prepare for challenges on the horizon, Federal agencies should invest in and emphasize career development. The PMC Interagency Rotation Program bolsters cross-agency exposure for high-potential GS 13-15s by providing each participant a 6-month interagency rotation assignment. Assignments provide the opportunity for participants to strengthen or develop specific leadership competencies aligned with the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs).
The PMC Interagency Rotation Program enables emerging Federal leaders to expand their leadership competencies, broaden their organizational experiences, and foster networks they can leverage in the future. Specifically, the program aims to:
• Deliver a collaborative, cross-agency program to reduce barriers to interagency mobility.
• Enhance PMC participants’ leadership competencies through a meaningful rotational assignment and through other developmental opportunities outside of their current agencies.
• Expand PMC participants’ interagency experience either within or outside their current area of expertise.
• Offer engaging and insightful interagency cohort events that allow each participant to network and interact with other program participants, Federal employees, and Senior Executives.
All agencies are invited to participate in the PMC Interagency Rotations Program. The Federal Executive Boards (FEB), in coordination with OPM, facilitate an interagency work group comprised of agency coordinators within their local area.
