- Full Report:
A limited review of the Department of the Interior's Upward Mobility program was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of job restructuring in promoting program objectives and to assess program progress. The Department has recognized the need to improve coordination, guidance, and technical assistance to the bureaus and field offices. Additional improvements can be made by providing better guidance to bureaus in identifying their Upward Mobility problems as a first step in program planning; by issuing additional guidance to bureaus on using skills surveys; by improving coordination between Equal Employment Opportunity and Upward Mobility program officials in developing affirmative action plans and collecting costs; by increasing use of job restructuring to support Upward Mobility objectives; and by reassessing the adequacy of top management support given to the program.
