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 with data from the Civilian Personnel Data File (CPDF), which is maintained by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) or for agencies that do not submit data to the CPDF, from data submitted in their annual Management Directive 715 (MD-715) reports.
Each agency's profile highlights the participation by race, 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. All Senior Level pay and management data derives from Agency submitted MD-715 reports.
The profiles include participation rates by race, national origin, gender and Individuals with Targeted Disabilities for persons who serve as supervisors and managers. 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.
This year's profile narratives also focus on agencies' participation rates of individuals with targeted disabilities calculated using the number of employees with reportable disabilities and the participation rates of Women in permanent management official positions. Although the EEOC reviews and analyzes the data submitted, each agency remains ultimately responsible for the accuracy of its own data submitted to both EEOC and OPM.
