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.
