Tasked with the challenge of filling an ever-fluctuating range of employees — seasonal, part-time and full-time — for 430 individual airports nationwide, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) turned to a hiring-assessment technology solution to find and hire the right candidates for the right positions. Under this new program, the TSA implemented the largest web-based testing program ever executed and now can manage applicant pools and pipelines and make better-informed recruitment advertising decisions.

In this session, presenters from the TSA, pan and Lockheed Martin will share a best-practices approach to implementing a hiring-assessment program, helping attendees understand what is required to combine best-of-breed component systems with an overarching data and systems architecture for an integrated solution.

With 24 years of aerospace and information technology experience at Lockheed Martin, presenter and systems architect Daniel B. Foley is responsible for the delivery and operations of the information systems and technology services to support TSA Office of Human Capital’s HRAccess program and mission. Also on the panel is director of Program Management for pan, John Montgomery. As a certified Project Management Professional with more than twenty years of experience, Montgomery is responsible for ensuring that all customer implementations and internal projects follow pan’s project management process and that all projects are delivered timely, efficiently and with the highest possible quality. Director and program manager for HR Operations at TSA, Mohammed A. Taher, will join Foley and Montgomery. In his role at the TSA, Taher oversees and manages the outsourced HR services contact and performance. Since joining TSA in 2004, he has directed teams to rapidly develop and deliver security sensitive training and the training curriculum for over 40,000 transportation security officers.

The HR Technology in the Federal Workplace Conference gathers federal human resources and information technology professionals of all levels from across the country for two days of informative sessions and three days of networking and exhibits. This year’s conference focuses on helping federal agencies hire and manage new employees faster and more effectively using technology, after years of downsizing.
