The U.S. Office of Personnel Management offers the Federal Competency Assessment Tools (both Management and Human Resources) through September 30, 2011. Agencies should complete all assessment activities and print/download all necessary reports and raw data by November 18, 2011.



WELCOME TO THE FEDERAL COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT TOOL - HUMAN RESOURCES (FCAT-HR), a tool created to provide a competency analysis of the skill level of an agency's HR specialist workforce. The tool assesses the proficiency levels of agency HR specialists using the Chief Human Capital Officers Council (CHCO) Human Resource Management (HRM) Competency Model. This model focuses on the initial set of competencies HR specialists need to meet the human resource and business challenges of your agency. The results of your assessment will help your agency develop strategies for addressing skills gaps and provide targeted development for you to progress in your career.
