S-E-C-R-E-T Approved For Releaa2002/05/02 : CIA-RDP80-00773A000IQ040024-2 23 AUG 1979 MEMORANDUM FOR: Deputy Director for Administration FROM: Harry E. Fitzwater Director of Personnel SUBJECT: Office of Personnel Weekly Report - Week Ending 22 August 1979 1. We now have a total of 587 persons who have either retired or have signed to go before the end of FY 1979; thus, we have already exceeded the range of estimated retirements originally projected for FY 1979 which was 550 to 575. There also appears to be a good chance that enough additional people will sign to go by 30 September so that we also will exceed the 600 actual retirements which took place in FY 1978. The number of persons who retired under the special retirement options during the period 1 May through 31 July 1979 was less than projected. However, the announcement of the 6.9o cost-of-living increase effective 1 September appears to have triggered enough additional voluntary or optional retirement activity to more than make up for the shortfall under the special retirement option. Total retirements by fiscal year since the record exodus in FY 1.973 are as follows: FY 1974 - 614 FY 1975 - 514 FY 1976 - 583 FY 1977 - 456 FY 71978 - 600 FY 1979 - 587 (definite to date) *Includes the transitional quarter (1 July through 30 September) when. we converted to the new 30 September-1 October fiscal year basis.
