Staffing and Structure


  • The LAB at OPM opened its physical space in early 2012 as a practical expression of the Innovation in Government initiative under OPM Director John Berry and his executive staff. Working with a small group of OPM and other government champions, and collaborating with private sector design schools and organizations for its first two years, the LAB hired its first Director in 2013. The LAB has been enthusiastically supported by each ensuing OPM Director and by leadership in many federal agencies with whom we partner.
