The CHCO bulletin is the primary means of disseminating pertinent and timely information to CHCOs on a wide range of Human Capital issues. The consolidated nature of this bulletin is meant to reduce the e-mail flow and streamline key communications.

Each agency should ensure they are getting all information contained in the weekly bulletin.
