Earlier this week, Office of Personnel Management Director Kiran Ahuja encouraged people to apply for the thousands of jobs authorized by the bipartisan infrastructure law signed by President Biden last year. In February, Ahuja announced the creation of a Schedule A hiring authority to bring on climate scientists, engineers and clean water engineers, among other posts.

Recently, GovExec correspondent and frequent GovExec Daily guest Erich Wagner interviewed Ahuja about hiring authorities and the federal workforce. In this episode, he spoke with Ahuja about how she sees the work her agency is doing in connection to the bipartisan infrastructure law and federal human capital.
