The survey was conducted as part of an organizational diagnosis in preparation for the implementation of a civilian personnel management demonstration project. The survey confirmed the presence of problems in supervisory authority, employee compensation and training, and perceived linkage between workers performance and rewards. Analyses of responses to background information questions, individual attitude items, and scales constructed according to specifications provided by the Office of Personnel Management are presented. Repeated administration of the survey as part of the program evaluation is recommended. Keywords Surveys Questionnaires Employee attitudes Attitude measurement Organizational diagnosis.
