Fiscal Year 2016 Inventory Process

For the FY 2016 inventory, of the total 64,351 positions, 10,859 SSA positions (16.9 percent of the Agency total) were reported in one of the commercial activity reason codes. In an effort to ensure an accurate inventory and consistent treatment of all activities, workgroup representatives reevaluate many of the commercial positions included on prior inventories. The Deputy Commissioner for Budget, Finance and Management of SSA, performs a final review of the inventory and approves those activities determined to be commercial in nature. Consistent with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance, the inventory includes inherently governmental positions.
