The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has partnered with Bender Consulting Services to provide a list of candidates with disabilities who are eligible to be hired through the Schedule A hiring appointment.

Easy search capability
Real-time updates as new candidates are added to the database
Ability to view resumes online
