OPM has the numbers

When Office of Personnel Management Director Linda Springer testified today before the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and the Federal workforce, she cited some interesting numbers.

More than 700,000 federal employees are enrolled in dental and vision insurance programs.

OPM makes payments of $60 billion in retirement and life insurance benefits.

The USAJobs Web site, which averages 20,000 job vacancies daily, has 1.9 million resumes on file and sends more than 260,000 e-mail messages daily to job seekers.

OPM manages the world's largest — 8 million people — single employer-sponsored health insurance plan in the world.

Clearly, government is a big job. So how would you rate OPM's performance?
