The Federal Civil Rights Enforcement Effort -- A Reassessment.
Miller, Jeffrey M., Ed.
In October 1970, the commission published its first of three across-the-board evaluations of the Federal Government's effort to end discrimination against American minorities. In February 1972 the commission chairman and the director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) agreed that the commission would provide OMB with a summary of Federal civil rights activites, highlighting progress and citing deficiencies in enforcement programs. The commission's staff director in September 1972 provided the OMB director with a report covering the activities of more than 25 Federal agencies and departments with significant civil rights responsibilities. The commission herewith publishes the document sent to OMB. Minor editing has been performed, but no substantive changes have been made in the report as delivered to OMB. This report was prepared in the same manner as other commission studies of the Federal enforcement effort. Detailed questionnaires were mailed to the agencies in July, interviews were held with Washington-based civil rights and program officials in July and August, and documents and data supplied by the agencies were analyzed. The report covers the activities of the agencies from October 1971 to July 1972. Sex discrimination is not covered in this report, it is stated, as the commission's jurisdiction did not include sex discrimination at the time of the report. (Author/JM)
