NTEU has received a courtesy notice from HHS providing more information about “Reimagine HHS” and its initiatives. According to the notice, HHS intends to achieve “meaningful transformation” by focusing on six strategic shifts which include: restoring market forces; putting people at the center of HHS programs; leveraging the power of data; turning HHS into a more innovative and responsive organization; generating efficiencies through streamlined processes; and moving to a 21st century workforce. The agency plans to use these strategic shifts to implement 10 new initiatives across HHS. The notice provides a list of the new initiatives for each strategic shift, as well as a brief description.
NTEU has requested a briefing and will determine whether HHS has a bargaining obligation on each new initiative prior to implementation.
If you have any questions about this matter, please contact your chapter president.
