Third Year Evaluation
This report describes the PACER SHARE Productivity and Personnel Management Demonstration and the plan that has been developed to evaluate it. The report also presents statistical results concerning the quality of work life, organizational flexibility, work quality, and cost savings during the baseline period prior to the demonstration and throughout the demonstration's first three years. PACER SHARE is a five-year demonstration being conducted at the Directorate of Distribution (DS) within the Sacramento Air Logistics Center (SM-ALC) under the legal authority of the Office of Personnel Management. Its purpose is to determine whether several changes in federal civil service practices being tried on an experimental basis will improve organizational productivity, flexibility, and quality of work life, while sustaining (or improving) the quality and timeliness of work and the capability to mobilize during emergency or wartime. The DSs at the four remaining ALCs (which perform similar functions) serve as the comparison sites. The demonstration formally began in February 1988 after several years of planning. If effective, the interventions will subsequently be considered for wider application.
