The Bureau of the Budget contends that, even alter allowances have been made for pay raises and the ueual periodic step increases, the Agency average salary over the past year has shown a sharp rise. The Bureau feels that our promotion rat* may be unduly high, that there has been too great a margin between position grade and the actual grade of the incumbent, and that grade structure within organizational components may be richer than actual responsibilities justify. The Bureau has also suggested that Agency retirement rates, under both the new legislation and coasting Civil Service arrangements, should start to accelerate, with a concomitant lowering of average salary needs. S. Based on the foregoing coasieratioas the Bureau of the Budget has assigned an Agency average salary for FY 1966 which is exceedingly austere. A careful examieation of Agency experience in this area is bein made in preparation for further negotiations with the Bureau, but even if some relief is obtained from the assigned figure, the problem t)f adhering to a set average salary is a substantial task for Agency management. 6. There are mitigating factors. believed to be unique to CIA, wttich have contribeteci to the trend toward higher average salaries. Firet is the legitimate and anticipated result of the Agency's deliberate policy of recruiting below the grade of the position and then promoting to the grade. La other words, people brought aboard in the lower grades are now growing into their full responsibilities and this is being recLgnized by promotion. This policy of k...0Dizig substantially below grade differs from the practice elsewhere in Government. 6econd, the Agency skills mix has also chnn4 - materially over the past year with many lower grade personnel droppeu from Tables of Organization and their numbers reduced through attritiela (one of the manifestations of an organization coming down in over-ail personnel strength). Finally, new positions at higher grade levels have been created to accommodate an increasing requirement LI the scientific and technical fields.
