A review of the Upward Mobility program in six departments and agencies was made to see how much progress has been made in implementing these programs. Policies, guidance, procedures, and program evaluation were examined.

Since 1974, the Civil Service Commission has taken many actions to improve program efforts throughout the federal government. However, GAO believes additional improvements can be made by giving departments and agencies detailed guidance on conducting the analyses needed to justify training agreements and on improving the accuracy and completeness of reported Upward Mobility program costs through various controls. Adoption of these suggestions would strengthen the federal government's Upward Mobility efforts.
