NARA’s Competency Connection

Welcome to NARA’s Competency Connection!  In this site you will find a variety of competency models and other resources that have been developed by NARA’s Chief Human Capital Office (H) in close collaboration with staff from various Program Offices across NARA.  As research suggests, and has become common practice for many federal agencies and private sector companies/organizations, using competencies can have a dramatic and positive effect on:

  • Recruitment activities
  • On-Boarding
  • Learning and Development
  • Performance Management
  • Workforce Planning

Whether you are here seeking employment with the Federal Government/NARA or a current employee seeking additional information, we hope that you will find these resources beneficial. Please return periodically as we will continue to update this site as competency models from other Program Offices across NARA are finalized, or other resources are added. Additional site-specific information can be found by selecting FAQ’s – NARA Competencies.

Please note If you’re a current NARA employee and your Program Office does not have specific models identified at this time (i.e., not represented under the Program Office Models section of this site), see guidance provided within the FAQS on how to proceed.
