The Office of Personnel Management faces a tight deadline to set up a new health insurance marketplace for Postal Service employees and retirees to enroll in new plans, starting next year.

Now OPM is addressing watchdog concerns about whether the IT infrastructure supporting this new USPS marketplace is following federal cybersecurity requirements.

OPM’s Office of Inspector General, in a flash audit released Friday, raised concerns about the cybersecurity steps OPM took before launching the IT systems that will run the Postal Service Health Benefits (PSHB) Program.

OPM is creating the Postal Service Health Benefits (PSHB) Program as a separate entity from the Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) program, as required under the Postal Service Reform Act signed into law last year.
