Agencies with 100 or more employees must submit their affirmative action reports in the diversity section of the HR Management Report. Affirmative action availability and utilization data, segmented by workforce planning job group, is provided to agencies prior to October of each year. The diversity section asks each agency to respond to the following questions:
Agencies that wish to conduct a more detailed availability and utilization analysis may continue to do so. However, the detailed analysis should not be submitted as part of the report.
