OPM wants new employee digital records system

The Office of Personnel Management is looking to invest in a technology that would better allow them to track current, potential and retired employees, Federal Times reports.

In a request for information dated June 1, 2018, OPM said it is looking for companies to provide a modernized employee digital records system that would enable employees to move between and re-enter agencies easier, according to the report.

The article notes that the new EDR system should be capable of tracking personnel from the moment they apply for a federal position through their retirement, containing personnel data for all government employees, annuitants, and current and former family members.
