Abstract:

The objective of our review was to answer the four questions regarding NASS selection of employees for the UMP and the representation of minorities in the NASS work force. To determine whether NASS followed merit promotion procedures when selecting employees for the UMP, we reviewed 1 the Office of Personnel Managements merit promotion requirements, 2 NASS January 28, 1983, merit promotion plan requirements, and 3 merit promotion case files for all six employees selected for the UMP during the period frm June 1988 through November 1990. We could not review earlier UMP selections because, in accordance with USDAs records management policy, NASS had not retained files for selections made before June 1988.
