Project Description

Client: U.S. Department of Transportation, Department of Human Resource Management

Description: DOT contracted with the National Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) to conduct a workforce planning assessment of mission critical occupations of DOT Operating Administrations.. The Academy is partnering with Management Concepts, a premier firm serving the public sector in the field of talent management, among others.
The assessment will look at the following issues: current staffing and capability gaps; emerging issues requiring new staff capabilities; areas of staffing surplus; hiring and retention issues, and succession planning and strategies. The Academy and Management Concepts will develop a model workforce plan based on the current structure, and will also focus on future requirements. An implementation plan will be provided along with a high-level approach for conducting succession planning.
The study team will receive guidance from a three-member Expert Advisory Group of Fellows and conduct the analysis over a six-month period.
