Report on Federal Productivity. Volume 1, Productivity Trends, FY 1967-1973.
Joint Financial Management Improvement Program, Washington, DC.
Volume 1 reports on Federal productivity and productivity trends for Fiscal Years 1967-1973, and comments on the causes of productivity increases and decreases. The report, prepared to promote improved financial management in individual agencies and on a government-wide scale, includes productivity measurement data supplied by 46 agencies. The report indicates considerable progress has been made in the measurement of productivity but that many opportunities exist for further productivity improvements. Factors which can be used to motivate increased productivity are discussed. Overall Productivity Trends summarizes coverage of the FY 1973 sample; the trends of input, output, and productivity for FY 1967-73; and the analysis of causal factors which influenced the direction of productivity trends. Chapters 3-19 describe productivity trends in the following areas: agriculture and natural resources; citizens' records; training and education; medical services; loans and grants; postal service; power; reference services; regulation; specialized manufacturing; transportation; maintenance of facilities; overhaul and repair of equipment; procurement and supply; standard printing; general support; and government-Owned, contractor-operated activities. The Relation of Productivity Measures to Other Performance Measures, Cooperation with State and Local Governments, and Conclusions are the concluding chapters. Study related materials are appended.
