In response to a congressional request, GAO summarized Office of Personnel Management (OPM) information on short-term training that federal executives, managers, and supervisors receive.

GAO found that OPM: (1) abolished the Civil Service Commission's training requirements in an effort to delegate more authority to the agencies regarding the content and timing of executive training; (2) established criteria for training Senior Executive Service (SES) candidates and incumbents; and (3) requested that agencies provide data on employee training activities. GAO also found that, in fiscal years 1984 through 1986, agencies reported that: (1) 57 percent of all managers and supervisors received training annually; and (2) the number of training hours averaged 52 each year for executives and 46 for managers and supervisors.
