[Excerpt] The EEOC is charged with monitoring federal agency compliance with equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws and procedures, and reviewing and assessing the effect of agencies’ compliance with requirements to maintain continuing affirmative employment programs to promote equal employment opportunity and to identify and eliminate barriers to equality of employment opportunity.
This report covers the period from October 1, 2004, through September 30, 2005 and contains selected measures of agencies’ progress toward model EEO programs.1 While working within our mission as an oversight agency, the EEOC strives to create a partnership with agencies. During the cited period, the EEOC sought and received assessment input from EEO Directors through several EEOC-sponsored feedback sessions. The information that we received has been invaluable as we work to achieve excellence in program planning and evaluation. The EEOC plans to continue dialogue with EEO Directors as we work to address the concerns of federal agencies.
