Subject:            Rotations for Presidential Management Fellows (PMF)                                      DD: 03/08/2008
 
Action Requested: The purpose of this Information Bulletin is to request State and Field Offices to submit projects for approximately 120-day, rotational assignments beginning in Summer 2008. Interested Offices should submit a proposal describing the project and duties the PMF would perform and the project timeframe. Assignments should give the PMF substantial responsibilities, allow the PMF to work on priority projects, and should promote a learning opportunity. Please include a brief description of the Office and local community, as well.
 
Background: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Department of the Interior currently have PMFs employed Nationwide. The PMF program is a highly competitive, government-wide professional development program designed to prepare individuals for management careers within the Federal government. Individuals hired through the PMF program are graduates of a variety of Masters Degree and doctoral-level programs. Presidential Management Fellows receive an initial two-year full-time excepted service appointment, after which they are eligible for conversion to a permanent position as a Federal government employee.
 
During their fellowship, PMFs take on one or more rotational assignments. The BLM fellows are currently seeking rotational opportunities and experiences at the State and Field Office level for a 4-month period. Additional information can be found at https://www.pmf.opm.gov/.
 
Budget Impacts: Travel and salary for PMFs rotational assignments is funded by the PMF’s home office.
 
Coordination: Resumes, including dates of availability, are available upon request. If your Office can offer this opportunity and would benefit from having a PMF, please submit proposals electronically to Megan Stouffer, WO-210 at megan­_stouffer@blm.gov and/or David Wood, NV-055 at david_wood@nv.blm.gov.
 
Timeframe:   Proposals should be submitted by Tuesday, March 8, 2008.
 
Contact:   If you have questions regarding the PMF program or rotational assignments, please contact Deb Rawhouser, Division Chief, Division of Decision Support, Planning and NEPA at (202) 452-0354 or Sandra Meyers, Branch Chief, Planning and NEPA Branch, at 202-452-5151.
