The Office of Management and Budget recently announced the Priority Area Leads of the Biden-Harris Management Agenda. In case you missed this recent release or want to know more, we have you covered. Get ready to meet our nine leaders who will help move the PMA priorities forward.

As a reminder, the President’s Management Agenda is the Administration’s roadmap for ensuring an equitable, effective, and accountable Federal Government that delivers results for all. The Biden-Harris Management Agenda Vision lays out three critical priorities that will help us address our Government’s most pressing challenges.

The Priority Area Leads are senior leaders from Federal Agencies across the Government, and each brings unique tools, perspectives, and expertise to the work. Each lead will oversee the work of one of the three PMA Priorities. Ready to meet these leaders? Learn what each is excited about as they begin their journey of leading their priority area.

Priority One: Strengthen and Empower the Federal Workforce

The strength of any organization rests on its people. Priority One Leads will focus on those who keep our Government running: the Federal workforce.
