GAO REPORTS ON PERFORMANCE SCORES ACROSS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT - June 13, 2016
The federal workforce, where everyone’s performance gets rave reviews
By Lisa Rein, The Washington Post
In the ranks of the federal government, 99 percent are really good at their jobs — and almost two-thirds exceed expectations or do outstanding work.
That’s the conclusion of a new report by the Government Accountability Office, which also found that 78 percent of high-level civil servants — those in GS grades 13 through 15 — were given top performance scores of outstanding or fully successful. Senior executives were not covered in this data.
