The Federal Bureau of Investigation Needs Better Representation of Women and Minorities.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
This paper examines the state of employment opportunities for women and minorities in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Statistics are presented to illustrate the low representation of women and minorities in professional positions within the FBI and suggestions are made for improving the employment status of these groups. Major areas addressed include FBI policies and practices affecting: (1) the structure and implementation of the Federal government's equal employment opportunity affirmative action program (EEO); (2) employee recruitment, selection, promotion, and training; and (3) the handling of discrimination complaints. Specific strategies for improving EEO program development and administration, for monitoring the FBI's employee selection process for discriminatory practices, and for modifying the FBI's counseling program are discussed. Comments of FBI officials are appended. (EB)
