Part II
Profiles for Selected Federal Agencies

What follows are individual profiles of federal agencies with a total work force of 500 or more employees.  These profiles of selected indicators were created from data submitted by agencies in annual EEOC Form 462 reports, and the Civilian Personnel Data File (CPDF), which is maintained by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). 

Each agency’s profile highlights the participation by race (including for the first time data on Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islanders and people of Two or More Races), national origin, gender, and disability status of employees in the work force as a whole, as well as in the agency’s major occupations, supervisor and manager ranks, Senior Pay Level, career Senior Executive Service (SES) and the "feeder grades" (GS-14 and GS-15) to the SES.

The profiles include participation rates by race, national origin, gender and Individuals with Targeted Disabilities for persons who serve as supervisors and managers.[1]  Additionally, the profiles include data on the participation rates for career SES positions.  Since those supervisors and managers comprising an agency’s First-Level Officials and Managers may constitute a large portion of an agency’s available pool of candidates for higher level managerial positions, a comparison of the data on the participation rates of persons as they progress through the managerial ranks and into the career SES ranks can serve as a diagnostic tool to help agencies uncover and effectively address impediments to fair and open competition in the federal workplace and allow individuals equal opportunity for advancement.

In general, the data for the profiled agencies indicate that a comparison of the participation rates of women, Hispanics or Latinos, Blacks or African Americans, Asians, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islanders and American Indians/Alaska Natives will show a decline from the First-Level positions to the Mid-Level positions and another decline from the Mid-Level positions to the Senior-Level positions.

The profile narratives also contain a number of measures related to the agencies' EEO complaint activities, including the number of complaints filed, complainants, closed complaints, merit decisions, findings of discrimination, and settlements.  Also included are timeliness measures for various stages of EEO complaint processing.  EEOC relies on each agency to provide accurate and reliable data for its complaint processing program.  Although the EEOC reviews and analyzes the data submitted, each agency remains ultimately responsible for the accuracy of its own data.

Finally, each profile narrative offers data concerning an agency’s success in implementing ADR activities at the pre-complaint and formal complaint stages of the discrimination complaint process.  EEOC is firmly committed to using ADR to resolve workplace disputes.  Used properly and in appropriate circumstances, ADR can provide faster and less expensive results while at the same time improving workplace communication and morale.
