Unexpectedly, OPM has issued its own report, quite possibly to get something into print before the General Accounting Office degree mill report, due in a few weeks.

Dizard III, GCN Staff The Office of Personnel Management has told agency heads it has identified several federal employees who claimed to have undergraduate and graduate degrees but had obtained their credentials from diploma mills. OPM director Kay Coles James said in a memorandum late yesterday that her agency plans new measures to curb diploma mill abuses, such as hiring additional staff at the Center for Federal Investigative Services. The center conducts and adjudicates background checks and advises agencies’ human resources officials on credential checks.
