  • An Introduction to the Plum Book

    In 1952 the Democratic party had controlled the Federal Government for twenty years.

     WHEN A REPUBLICAN WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT IN 1952,  THE REPUBLICAN PARTY  REQUESTED A LIST OF GOVERNMENT POSITIONS THAT THE NEW PRESIDENT COULD FILL. 

    The next edition of the Plum Book appeared in 1960 and has since been published every four years, just after the Presidential election, the United States Government Policy and Supporting Positions, commonly known as the Plum Book, is published, alternately, by the Senate and the House. The Plum Book is used to identify presidentially appointed positions within the Federal Government. The data in the Plum Book comes from the ESCS. Via  the Government Printing Office (GPO)

    THE PLUM BOOKS HAVE NEVER BEEN ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER LIST. 

    JUST AFTER THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION OF REPUBLICAN DONALD J. TRUMP NOV 8, 2016 the Democratic party had controlled the Federal Government for eight years.

    Getting Ready for 2017: An Introduction to the Plum Book

    In December 2016, GPO will publish the next edition of the Plum Book. You can put it on your Christmas list, but that may be too late.

    After each party’s nominating conventions, resumes will begin to flow.

    After the election, the transition teams will begin formally allocating these resumes to potential slots in departments and agencies.

    Former Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare John Gardner characterizes this period as follows,

    “So now we have a new administration.

    The venal and obsequious gather round. But fortunately, so do some very able people. And sometimes, of course, they are indistinguishable.”

    The job of the transition team and of the Office of Presidential Personnel is to pick the real plums from among those who gather around. And aspirants for a presidential appointment will be able study the “plum position” to which they might aspire on the Metro using GPO’s updated “Plum Book” website.

    The true plums, including “General” non-career SES, total about 3,600 positions.

    ———————————————————————

    snippet….

    President Obama’s appointees, who are not in the Civil Service system, generally will tender their resignations before the Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration. There are about 1,400 Schedule C appointee jobs and about 600 of the 7,000 jobs in the Senior Executive Service are political appointments.

    ———————————————————————————

    People seeking a job in the administration need to realize that there are two types of SES positions. The first is the “General” type position that is referred to above. The second is the Career Reserved position available only to career civil servants. Each group totals about 4,000 jobs (out of about 8,000 total SES). The “General” positions can be filled by either a career or non-career person. In 2012, there were about 3,800 Career “General” SES and about 680 Non-career SES members

    FULL UNEDITED TEXT

    Getting Ready for 2017: An Introduction to the Plum Book

    March 31, 2016 View original post

    By G. Edward DeSeve and Mark A. Abramson

    Get ready for the most popular new website in Washington coming in December 2016. In December, the Government Publishing Office (GPO) will release two versions of the quadrennial United States Policy and Supporting Positions, more popularly known as the “Plum Book.” GPO will release a digital version of the book on their website, and hard copy.

    United States Policy and Supporting Positions was first published in 1952 when incoming President Dwight Eisenhower sought information on how many political appointments he could fill after twenty years of Democratic administrations. With the exception of 1956, the book has been published every four years since then. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the Senate Committee on Government Affairs alternate in compiling the book. In 2017, it will be compiled by the Senate Committee on Government Affairs. The most recent edition was published by GPO in December of 2012. Always looking to sell books, GPO used a brilliant shade of plum to color the cover.

    The book contains listings of jobs by department, the type of appointment for each position, names of current incumbents in many of the positions, and salary levels. One of the interesting things about the book is that experts disagree on the exact number of “plum” positions available to a new Administration. The definitions of “Positions Subject to Non-Competitive Appointment” include the following categories:

    PAS: Position Subject to Presidential Appointment with Senate Confirmation
    PA: Positions Subject to Presidential Appointment without Senate Confirmation
    GEN: Positions Designated as Senior Executive Service “General” (These positions can be used to select either career or noncareer individuals.)
    NA: Senior Executive Service General Positions Filled by Noncareer Appointment (“General” SES positions which were used by the Obama Administration to appoint noncareer individuals.)
    TA: Senior Executive Service Positions Filled by Limited Emergency or Limited Term Appointment
    SC: Positions Filled by Schedule C Excepted Appointment
    XS: Positions Subject to Statutory Excepted Appointment

    Aspirants to a presidential appointment in 2017 should now begin work on memorizing the above acronyms to use in their conversations with the next transition team or the Office of Presidential Personnel (after January 20, 2017). However, not all of these positions are truly plums. By that, we mean that they are not all available to be filled by the new administration. People seeking a job in the administration need to realize that there are two types of SES positions. The first is the “General” type position that is referred to above. The second is the Career Reserved position available only to career civil servants. Each group totals about 4,000 jobs (out of about 8,000 total SES). The “General” positions can be filled by either a career or non-career person. In 2012, there were about 3,800 Career “General” SES and about 680 Non-career SES members. The Civil Service Act of 1978 stipulates that no more than 10% of the total SES population can be non-career appointees.

    The true plums, including “General” non-career SES, total about 3,600 positions. These include both full time jobs and part time board and commission positions. Salaries range from PAS 1 (Cabinet Secretaries and their equivalent) to administrative assistants in the Schedule C category who may be at a GS 7 or 9 level. In December 2012, the numbers were:

    Presidential Appointments with Senate Confirmation (PAS): 1217

    Presidential Appointments without Senate Confirmation (PA): 364

    Non-Career Senior Executive Service (TA): 680

    Schedule C (SC): 1392

    Total 3653

    Two offices work with departments and agencies to fill the jobs. One is the Office of Presidential Personnel (OPP) in the White House which approves specific individuals for specific jobs. A candidate for a job can be proposed by a department or agency but they must be approved by OPP. Often, OPP will refer candidates to departments and agencies and require that individuals are given a good look before the department’s favored candidates are considered. The second key office is the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) which approves all SES allocations (Career Reserve and General) and makes sure that the “General” non-career slots do not exceed 10% of all the total SES positions as noted above.

    The process can move reasonably quickly once an individual is selected for a positon. The individual selected for a position must then be vetted by lawyers assigned to work with OPP who will ask hard questions and request that a myriad of forms be completed, many requiring detailed financial information. One onerous part of Senate confirmation is that a different set of forms have to be filled out for confirming committees. Many experts have proposed the standardization of these forms but they have not yet succeeded in moving to one form for both the Executive branch and congressional committees. Background checks of selected appointees also include FBI review of individuals which can include full field investigations or phone investigation by FBI agents.

    In December 2016, GPO will publish the next edition of the Plum Book. You can put it on your Christmas list, but that may be too late. After each party’s nominating conventions, resumes will begin to flow. After the election, the transition teams will begin formally allocating these resumes to potential slots in departments and agencies. Former Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare John Gardner characterizes this period as follows, “So now we have a new administration. The venal and obsequious gather round. But fortunately, so do some very able people. And sometimes, of course, they are indistinguishable.”

    The job of the transition team and of the Office of Presidential Personnel is to pick the real plums from among those who gather around. And aspirants for a presidential appointment will be able study the “plum position” to which they might aspire on the Metro using GPO’s updated “Plum Book” website.
