The Human Resources Classification and Recruitment Documents System (HR CARDS) is NIH’s web-based library that contains standard classified Position Descriptions (PDs) and associated classification and recruitment documents. HR CARDS is instrumental in aiding HR specialists, administrative personnel and managers to recruit top-notch talent by standardizing, streamlining, and expediting the classification and recruitment process. The use of HR CARDS is a key factor for meeting the 80-day hiring reform model as instructed by President Obama’s May 11, 2010 memorandum, Improving the Federal Recruitment and Hiring Process because it reduces the length of time it takes an HR specialist to post a job vacancy announcement.
