The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) launched the COVID-19 Surge Response Program, an open opportunities platform where Federal agencies can post temporary job opportunities supporting the government’s response to coronavirus.

Published on March 27, there are currently no open positions on the COVID-19 Surge Response landing page. The Open Opportunities listing explains that the new program will help Federal agencies find Feds with applicable skills to fill rotational positions on coronavirus-related projects.
