Utilize existing software and payroll process such as the DOJ FBOP's employee express et al and combine them with OPM's system to allow staff to automatically and electronically apply for retirement, identify benefits, register for continued et al... all from their workstation. In such, the OPM retirement systema nd the BOP pay systems would be semi merged, thus ELIMINATING partial payments and non-payments by OPM when BOP staff retire. - Such a system not only makes sense, but would save OPM staff hours and reduce the retirement backlog. - This could be done for all federal agencies (systems partial merge with OPM), thus resulting in honoring our new and forthcoming retiress with accurate and timely initial retirement payments.
