Alternative discipline is an approach to addressing misconduct that enables supervisors to consider the nature of the offense, and the personality of the employee, when crafting a response that has the greatest potential to help the employee to avoid future misconduct. For ex., Fed. supervisors have the authority to suspend an employee without pay if the employee misbehaves -- but what if the supervisor thinks another method may have a better chance of changing the employeeżs behavior? This report looks at what agencies are doing in this area. Few agencies have a formal policy on alternative

Fed. agencies rely on a multisector workforce composed of fed. employees and contractor personnel to perform services as they carry out their missions. Determining whether to obtain services through insourcing with current or new fed. employees, outsourcing with private sector contractors, or co-sourcing with a combination of the two is an economic and strategic decision. The exec. branch has encouraged fed. agencies since the mid-1950s to obtain commercially available services from the private sector when outsourcing is cost-effective. This report identified: (1) actions taken to assist affec

In 2007, it was reported that real-property-holding agencies and the administration had made progress toward managing their real property, but underlying problems, such as backlogs in repair and maintenance, still existed and six agencies reported having over $1 billion in repair and maintenance backlogs.
