F. Updating Qualification Standards
OPM's goal is to keep the requirements in the qualification standards as current as possible. Therefore, agencies are requested to inform the Strategic Human Resources Policy Division of substantive changes to occupational or agency requirements so that the appropriate qualification standard can be revised. Additionally, if agencies are having difficulty in obtaining well qualified applicants on the basis of current qualification requirements, they should contact the Strategic Human Resources Policy Division so that a determination can be made on whether the standard is in need of revision.
