Abstract:

The ascent to power of a Democratic administration promoting the value of government activism has generated questions about the ability of the federal bureaucracy to execute expanded missions. Bureaucracy is associated in the public mind with inefficiency and wastefulness. This public image, in combination with such factors as low pay and ineffective recruiting, has discouraged the best talent graduating from college each year from seeking employment in the public sector. This paper examines the increasing difficulty the government is having in attracting quality employees and offers recommendations for improvement
