- Full Report:
In June 1976 the Department of the Air Force issued an Upward Mobility Training Agreement to enhance employees' upward mobility opportunities. A review was conducted of the progress of the Upward Mobility Program at the departmental level and at three field activities.
Field activities are reporting Upward Mobility costs in an inconsistent manner, and lack of departmental guidelines has resulted in reporting inaccurate and incomplete Upward Mobility program costs. The Air Force Training Agreement emphasizes that participants should be selected in accordance with local merit promotion principles. The way in which ranking is used for selecting Upward Mobility participants is not effective, and individuals without the necessary knowledge of Upward Mobility career fields are serving on interview panels.
