Request for Panel Members for the Presidential Management Intern Assessment Process

Thank you for the outstanding support you provided during last year's Presidential Management Intern (PMI) Assessment Center process held in Washington, DC. For the upcoming cycle, we will again need your full support in identifying volunteers to serve as panel members.

There are three components to the PMI assessment center: an individual presentation, a group discussion, and a writing exercise. The PMI assessment center process will entail a three-member panel comprised of a representative from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and two Federal agency representatives. The three-member panel will observe and evaluate PMI candidates on the group discussion and individual presentation. The writing exercise will be evaluated separately by different assessors. The PMI Assessment Center process is unique in the D.C. area because of the large number of students requesting to be assessed and the fact that we are operating two assessment centers daily.

Volunteers for the assessment process should be at the GS-13 or higher grade levels and possess strong analytical, observational, and note-taking skills. Training will be conducted in early December of 2000 at OPM Headquarters, 1900 E Street NW, Washington, DC. All volunteers will be notified in late November with the exact date and location of the training.

Please distribute the attached nomination form throughout your Washington, DC metropolitan area and Baltimore locations. If you would like an electronic copy of this form, you may e-mail Deborah Lee at Completed nomination forms should be faxed or e-mailed to Ms. Lee. Her fax number is (202) 606-1674. Please return all volunteer nomination forms by close of business, November 17, 2000.

The PMI Program has been fortunate to have the support of the Federal community in the past, and we appreciate your continued interest, support and participation.
