Most Agencies Expand Staffs in 2011

Bill Bransford, partner at Shaw Bransford & Roth P.C. and General Counsel for the Senior Executive Association, was quoted in The Federal Times' column Most Agencies Expand Staffs in 2011 on February 7, 2010. The column is available here.

Excerpt: The federal workforce will decline slightly in 2011, but most agencies will see their staffs grow next year.

The difference results from the Census Bureau, which will add hundreds of thousands of temporary workers for 2010 for its decennial population count.

The overall federal workforce is projected to decline by about 42,600 in fiscal 2011, but it will remain at slightly more than 2 million people — federal staffing topped that benchmark for the first time this year.
