Burn Bag: Employment Vacancy Application System Has Systemic Flaws?

Via Burn Bag:

“It has recently come to light that the current employment vacancy application system at the State Department has profound and pervasive system-based flaws. It also appears that State Department HR and vendor are largely aware of these flaws, and are not acting to address them in a meaningful way. These flaws appear to exclude many qualified civil service applicants, and may contribute to a dysfunctional atmosphere in which hiring managers may rationalize that “back-channel” hiring practices, nepotism, patronage, and preselection are the only way to work around the systemic difficulties.”
