An existing 6-inch water line fractured on 26 February causing a temporary loss of water to the Headquarters Building. There was no construction activity occurring in the vicinity of the fracture and the cause has not yet been determined. Since an adjacent existing water line froze and broke last month, this line could have experienced undetected stress, causing a later fracture. Halco Engineering, Incorporated, cooperated with Allied in restoring water service to Headquarters and assisted in follow-up maintenance actions. 1. On 20 February, an Office of Logistics (OL) vehicle sustained damages amounting to approximately $500 when a hydraulic barrier was accidentally raised under the vehicle by the guard at the Pentagon. This is the second such incident to take place at the Pentagon involving an OL vehicle. The first incident occurred in June 1984 and, again, was caused by an error on the part of the guard. Fortunately, no personal injuries were sustained in either incident. m. A new parking area is being constructed behind the Motor Pool. A contractor is in the process of patching two soft areas in the new lot with gravel. The new ground will then be rolled, and the lot will be ready for use on 1 March. Approximately 130 spaces will be made available for parking. Additionally, 12 angled parking spaces along the North Ring Road were added to the North Parking Lot during the week of 23 February. n. With improved weather conditions, the repairs to the 7th-floor terrace and penthouse roof are progressing more rapidly. The installation of a gravel ballast on the front side of the 7D and 7E corridors was completed the weekend of 23 February. o. On 19 February, Office of Personnel (OP) representatives met with Thomas Latimer and Michael O'Neill of the HPSCI staff to discuss current happenings on the Hill regarding changes in the Federal retirement systems. The advice of the HPSCI staffers is to continue educating the staff on the Agency's needs so HPSCI can better assist and meet the Agency's retirement system needs. p. A letter signed by the DDA was forwarded to the Chairman, HPSCI, Lee Hamilton providing an overview of Agency personnel and requesting continued support from the Committee for the Agency's career system. In general, the letter contained what we think should be a general line of approach to the Hill and specifically cited our concern over any proposed modifications of existing retirement systems.

OP and OLL representatives attended the first hearing of the Subcommittee on Compensation and Employee Benefits of the House Post Office and Civil Service Committee on the Administration's FY 86 budget proposals to cut employee retirement and pay benefits. The key witness was the Director, OPM, who presented the Administration's rationale for the proposed benefits cuts. It was clearly evident that there was no support for any of the proposals by either Mary Rose Oakar, who chaired the hearing, or other members of the Committee. Representatives Barnes (Maryland) and Fazio (California), who are members of the House Budget Committee, also testified indicating strong opposition to any further reductions in Federal employee entitlements. r. A Headquarter's Employee Bulletin and a worldwide station and base cable have been prepared notifying employees about the Administration's budget proposals, the supplemental retirement legislation, and developments on the Hill on these issues. s. It is clearly far too early to know exactly what action Congress will take with regard to the various retirement proposals. Much activity will take place in this arena over the next several months. A briefing package is being assembled by OP for use with all the appropriate Hill committees. t. Employment/OP is distributing a new recruiting aid called HIRE (Hiring Information and Requirements for Employment). This handbook, a handsome, three-ring binder bearing the OP emblem, is a consolidated Agencywide listing of minimum college-degree requirements grouped alphabetically by Directorate. Designed as a quick reference guide for employees involved in recruitment, the handbook represents a significant advance in our efforts to simplify and expedite analysis of the Agency's diverse criteria for employment. With this aid, a recruiter can swiftly assess an applicant's qualifications for specific jobs throughout the Agency. u. The Student Program presently has an all-time high of 150 student applicants in process for a variety of student positions in the Agency, and continued growth is anticipated. In the past six weeks, some 20 students have been placed in process for high-tech positions within various components and a visit to the University of Akron will be made in early March to interview some 30-plus students presently seeking engineering or computer science degrees. The anticipated growth in the number of applicants and the recent authority to provide partial tuition assistance to the best of the Student Trainees during their senior year augur well for a projected higher retention rate. v. A briefing was conducted with an OMB examiner on the need for an increase in the Agency's SIS ceiling The examiner requested some additional details on specific positions which have been designated at the SIS level, and we are working to provide this information. We are hoping for a substantive response from OMB in the near term. w. Chief, Personal Services Branch/OP attended the U.S. Savings Bond Kickoff Rally on 21 February.
