Abstract Federal agencies need talented workers to meet new challenges and complete new missions in the 21st century. Currently, there is an underutilized community of talented individuals who want to work and specifically want to work for the Federal Government. In order to better utilize this untapped pool of talent, on July 26, 2010, President Obama signed Executive Order (EO) 13548 on Increasing Federal Employment of Individuals with Disabilities to mark the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The EO works to establish the Federal Government as a model employer of individuals with disabilities and to improve efforts to employ workers with disabilities through increased recruitment, hiring, advancement, and retention of these individuals. It requires Federal agencies to increase the hiring of people with disabilities by 100,000 over the next five years.
