Affirmative Action Programs of Four Component Organizations of the Department of Justice

the Offices, Boards and Divisions, the Federal Prison System, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Gao ID: 106559 July 12, 1978

A review of the affirmative action programs of several organizations within the Department of Justice showed that even though some of the Bureaus' female and minority representations showed progress during the period July 1, 1974, through December 31, 1976, more can be done to improve the Bureaus' equal employment opportunity profile. Generally, in order to improve their equal employment opportunity programs, these Bureaus should monitor recruiting and selection, develop methods for insuring equal opportunity in promotion practices, periodically perform effectiveness evaluations, and modify the complaint system.
