Hatch Statement on Resignation of OPM Director Katherine Archuleta

Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, the senior Republican in the United State Senate, issued the following statement after the announced resignation of Office of Personnel Management Director Katherine Archuleta:

“As our understanding of the magnitude of the OPM hack has grown worse with each passing day, absent an adequate response from leadership or the administration, a change in management is  absolutely necessary. Federal employees and personnel have a right to know that when they choose a career in public service, their personal data is in the hands of responsible stewards. Director Archuleta failed that test. I intend to hold her successor Mrs. Corbert accountable for improving the office and correcting the embarrassing shortcomings that have been exposed in recent weeks.”
