"We must have a Government that thinks differently, so we need to recruit talented and imaginative people to public service."

–President George W. Bush in an excerpt from Strategic Management of Human Capital The President's Management Agenda


The Senior Executive Service Federal Candidate Development Program will help Federal agencies meet their succession planning goals and contribute to the Government's effort to create a high-quality SES leadership corps. The information contained on this site provides information about the program and the educational model used to develop the candidates. This model includes feedback-intensive and mentoring components. The program will expose candidates to the best leaders in the Federal Government.

People who complete the program and obtain certification by an SES Qualifications Review Board (QRB) may be selected for an SES position anywhere in the Federal Government without further competition.

Individuals interested in this program can start preparing to apply for upcoming opportunities by reviewing the Executive Core Qualifications and the Preparing for the Senior Executive Service guide.

Many Federal agencies looking to enhance succession planning options have joined our partnership. Agencies interested in participating in this partnership program should review our Fostering Future Agency Leadership brochure and contact us.

If you think you may be ready to become a senior executive in Government service, bookmark this page for future reference and links to new information! Fed CDP opportunities will be posted on USAJOBS.
