GSA Career Planning Training Tool (CPTT)

GSA Workforce Modernization and Upskilling

George Mason University is partnering with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), in coordination with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Federal Chief Financial Officers Council (CFOC) and the 24 largest federal agencies, to help revolutionize the federal government's approach to workforce modernization and upskilling.

The pace of technological change is disrupting the workforce. By providing access to best-in-class training to its employees, the government seeks to give them tools to improve their knowledge and skills, thrive in the knowledge economy, and ultimately provide better services to the American public.

Mason's School of Business and Continuing and Professional Education have come together to build a program designed for the federal financial management community, which has approximately 140,000 employees, as a test population in a broader effort to accelerate the rollout of agile and innovative approaches for upskilling the federal workforce. These courses provide content that aligns with 54 competency areas with emphasis on data, technology, and financial management skills.
