Federal Manager's Daily Report

Despite a 58 percent increase in Hispanic hiring in the

federal government during fiscal 2002, the Office of


Personnel Management says more needs to be done. “More

progress needs to be made to attract Hispanics… and to

achieve the diverse federal work force President Bush called

for in his Management Agenda,” OPM chief Kay Coles James

recently told HR and EEO directors.

She touted efforts by the National Association of Hispanic

Federal Executives to promote more management accountability

for Hispanic representation in the Senior Executive Service;

better strategic management of human capital; improving

mentoring of Hispanics in grades GS-12 through 14, and

innovative recruiting, training and retaining of Hispanics.
