From the Document: "On January 31, 2020, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar declared a public health emergency for the United States in response to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). To assist the federal government in responding to the emergency, Congress passed legislation that provides Direct-Hire Authority (DHA) to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has also reiterated long-standing guidance on flexibilities for hiring in executive agencies that are codified in Title 5 of the 'United States Code' and Title 5 of the 'Code of Federal Regulations.'"
