Availability Analysis - External Workforce

The availability analysis provides a numerical measure of utilization through an analysis of the internal workforce of each state entity and the availability of affirmative action groups in surrounding labor areas. A comparison of the availability numbers and the actual number of affirmative action groups currently employed by the agency indicates whether or not the agency is underutilized. The resulting number becomes the ultimate goal of the agency.

In FY24, there are 96 fewer underutilizations than in FY23.
