Information on Employee Benefits
GGD-87-112FS: Published: Sep 3, 1987. Publicly Released: Sep 3, 1987.
- Full Report:
In response to a congressional request, GAO examined how well federal agencies meet their employees' needs for information on the various benefit programs in the federal compensation package.
GAO found that: (1) of the 23 federal agencies it surveyed, four large and six small agencies provided personalized benefits statements to their employees; (2) although the Federal Personnel Manual contains the information on employee benefits, the information is widely dispersed, incomplete, and not up-to-date; and (3) the President's Council on Management Improvement recommended that the Office of Personnel Management develop a handbook for agencies to use as a primary reference source on benefits in order to improve advisory support and reduce research time and paperwork preparation.
