Measuring Efficiency and Tradeoffs in Attainment of EEO Goals.
TEXAS UNIV AT AUSTIN CENTER FOR CYBERNETIC STUDIES
Pagination or Media Count:
This paper sketches a framework for evaluating the efficiency with which various units of the U.S. Navy attain their EEO goals. We focus on the conversion of effort or input resources into outcomes or program outputs reflecting the improvements in the representation of women and minorities in the various Navy units. To determine the efficiency of this conversion process we assume that, where needed, an EEO program will set out to provide the maximum amount of improvement in representation for a given level of resources any such program is designated as being technically efficient. However, in the absence of known formulae of program operation, it is difficult to ascertain the level of outcome that should be expected and then determine efficiency by comparing attained outcomes with expected outcomes. In this paper, we shall propose to compare resource utilization and outcomes achieved by EEO programs among all units, and then evaluate the outcome levels that any program has achieved relative to what has been shown by other programs to be practically attainable with, at most, as many resources.
