Managing the Multi-Sector Workforce

On July 29, 2009, the Office of Management and Budget OMB) issued a Memorandum called, "Managing the Multi-Sector Workforce."

The memorandum requires that agencies in-source all inherently governmental functions being performed by contract.  It also directs agencies to examine whether the agency’s performance has suffered due to an over-reliance on the contract workforce.

The State Department’s Collaborative Strategy and Management Office (A/EX/CSM) is running the OMB-directed effort. 

This office helps the Department comply with the following mandates:

  • Managing the multi-sector workforce
  • Congressional Mandates: In-sourcing Inherently Governmental functions
  • Office of Federal Procurement Policy, Policy Letter 11-01 – Performance of Inherently Governmental and Critical Functions
  • Service Contract Inventory (SCI)
  • Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act
