USG Plum Book for 2008 is Available

The Plum Book (United States Government Policy and Supporting Positions): 2008 Edition is now available.

It is published after each presidential election by, alternately,  the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

It contains data (as of September 1, 2008) on over 7,000 Federal Government Civil Service leadership and support positions in the legislative and executive branches of the Federal Government that may be subject to noncompetitive appointment (e.g., positions such as agency heads and their immediate subordinates, policy executives and advisors, and aides who report to these officials). The duties of many such positions may involve advocacy of Administration policies and programs and the incumbents usually have a close and confidential working relationship with the agency head or other key officials.
