Personnel Appeals Board:
Promotions of Banded Employees, 1991-1995
SP-99-9: Published: Sep 30, 1999. Publicly Released: Sep 30, 1999.
GAO published a Personnel Appeals Board study that examined the median time to promotion and rates of promotion of GAO banded employees for the five year period 1991-1995. GAO noted that: (1) there were some disparities based on race, gender and age, but that the causes of these differences were not readily apparent from the statistics alone; and (2) the Board has recommended that GAO further investigate the disparities to determine whether additional steps need to be taken to ensure equal opportunity for its employees.
