Effective December 15th, 2019, OPB instituted a strategic hire approval process for state agencies to
ensure agencies are thinking critically about how to use vacant positions to restructure how services
are delivered and to recruit and retain talented employees. The strategic hire process will apply to
any regular, full-time position a state department, authority, or commission seeks to fill at a salary
above the state median of $40,000. OPB’s strategic hire system provides an online method for the
submission and processing of these requests.
If you haven’t already received your credential instructions then please send an email to OPB_Helpdesk@opb.georgia.gov
Provide us your name, email address, phone number and the agency that you need to submit a request for
and we will get you setup as soon as possible.
