USDA Discrimination Complaints Criticised

More criticism today for the Agriculture Department – this time about discrimination.

The Government Accountability Office is faulting how USDA gathers and keeps data on complaints from minority workers and farmers.

USDA says the report doesn’t factor in a new online tool to track employee complaints.

GAO is suggesting a new oversight board to review concerns about civil rights.

Sign up for the online chat with Air Force Deputy CIO Bill Marion II on May 9, at 10 a.m. (EDT).
