Herndon, VA (Vocus/PRWEB ) February 23, 2010 — Today, in response to the human capital crisis unfolding in the United States government, a consortium of organizations, including the Center for Human Capital Innovation (CHCI) and MBO Partners, launched the Portal for Talent Management in Government at Destined to become the leading online resource for government talent management, will bring together research, training, webcasts, and live human capital management events.

Beyond HR, the Portal for Talent Management in Government will investigate contingent workforce management, including the use of independent contractors. Over 80% of the governmentís work is produced by contractors, yet too often, government talent management executives are ill-equipped to manage the contract talent workforce effectively. ìThe crisis in government talent management is undeniable,” said Allan Zeman, President of CHCI. ìFor example, 90% of government senior executives will be eligible to retire within five years. Federal budgets for government talent will likely be cut in the coming decade rather than expanded, while demands with an aging population, global instability, and ongoing wars – continue to grow.”
