The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is committed to improving the quality and availability of applicant assessments and the means to deliver them.  During this past year, our focus has been on streamlining the Administrative Careers With America (ACWA) assessments and providing a delivery system that reduces the administrative process.   

In April 2006, OPM announced the availability of streamlined versions of 16 ACWA assessments, with plans to issue more in the near future.  We are pleased to announce the availability of 47 additional streamlined ACWA assessments.  Attached is a complete list of the streamlined ACWA assessments.

Effective April 1, 2007, we will release our Assessment Delivery System (ADS) containing the 63 streamlined versions of the ACWA assessments.  The ADS allows individuals to complete the assessment and retain the score for future use; is capable of sending electronic notice of results to individuals; and is able to maintain a data base of the individuals' contact information and all the vacancy announcements submitted through the USA Staffing System.

The new streamlined ACWA assessments and delivery tool will significantly simplify the process of applying for many entry-level jobs and improve our ability to attract high quality applicants.  If you have any questions regarding the ADS, please contact Daniel Fusco, Manager, Recruiting, Examining, and Assessment Group, by telephone at (202) 606-0830 or by email at
