Elaine D. Kaplan, acting director of the Office of Personnel Management, is leaving her post at that agency to become a federal judge.

Kaplan will serve on the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. The Senate confirmed her for the judgeship on Sept. 17.

Kaplan had previously served as OPM’s general counsel, Senior Deputy General Counsel for the National Treasury Employees Union, head of the Office of Special Counsel, as well as positions at the Department of Labor.

OPM has been headed by Kaplan since longtime director John Berry left last April. The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has since approved the president’s pick for Berry’s permanent successor—Katherine Archuleta. Archuleta awaits Senate confirmation.
