OEO Annual Report, 1971.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC. Office of Equal Opportunity.
In its 1971 report, the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) evaluates its efforts and accomplishments in the following 4 areas: (1) application of compliance and enforcement measures to assure equal access for all citizens to United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) programs, (2) evaluation of program participation data to monitor progress in the delivery of benefits to minorities, (3) review of employment practices of Government contractors to assure equal employment opportunity, and (4) rendering of assistance to disadvantaged small business firms seeking Government contracts so that minority-owned firms can become competitive. The legal requirements for equal opportunity--the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968, Executive Order 11063, and the USDA regulations--are discussed. The Compliance and Enforcement (C&E) division operations and major C&E activities are described. Data tabulations are included. (FF)
