Summary
The Corps strategic human capital plan is out of date and not aligned with the agency's most recent strategic plan. Although the human capital plan was aligned with the agency's strategic plan when both plans were developed in 2002, the human capital plan has not been revised since then to reflect the agency s current strategic plan, which changed significantly when it was redrafted in 2005. Corps headquarters officials told us that although they have not informed the rest of the agency, they have abandoned the use of the existing human capital plan. These officials told us that they have replaced the plan with annual and quarterly updates of human capital activities required by OPM under a recent presidential initiative. However, we found that these updates do not provide an adequate substitute for the agency s human capital plan because they do not contain any of the components of an effective plan, such as goals, strategies, and a system for measuring how successfully the strategies have been implemented. Moreover, the lack of a current human capital plan has resulted in human capital activities being managed inconsistently across the agency. For example, some division and district officials told us they are still using the 2002 human capital plan as a guide, and others said that because they receive limited guidance from headquarters, they are independently seeking information on recruitment and retention incentives from OPM or other sources. To help the Corps more effectively manage its human capital activities, we are recommending that it redraft its human capital plan so that the plan is linked to the agency s strategic plan and contains all the key components outlined by OPM. Moreover, we are recommending that once the plan is revised, the Corps distribute the revised plan and direct the divisions and districts to use the new plan to guide their human capital activities
