[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, 2007, through September 30, 2008 and contains selected measures of agencies’ progress toward model EEO programs. Working within our mission as an oversight agency, EEOC strives to create a partnership with agencies. In FY 2008, EEOC’s Relationship Management program comprised 10 Cabinet/Mid-Size agencies and continued its small agency program with 14 agencies.
The FY 2008 Annual Report on the Federal Work Force, submitted to the President and Congress, presents a summary of selected EEO program activities in the federal government, including work force profiles of 59 federal agencies. The report provides valuable information to all agencies as they strive to become model employers.
