The major purposes of this study is to understand the nature of DONs civilian professionals GSGM 13-15 and SES managerial responsibilities and activities, including the performance frequency and importance of various managerial tass, the diversity of various managerial responsibilities, and the percentage of time spent on various management-related activities. Comparisons on these variables are made among subgroups, defined along types of organizations, occupational series, pay plans, and gender. Subgroup comparisons were made by using graphs, as well as statistical hypothesis testing procedures, including simple t-test and multiple comparison methods. Comparisons revealed that although all of the DONs civilian professionals engaged in similar kinds of managerial activities, significant differences were found on the degree and scope of performing these activities among various supervisor groups, grade levels, and types of organizations. This suggests that for the future comparisons, investigators should take into consideration the effects of these subgroup distinctions as the three contingency variables, in terms of the contingency approach of management theory.
