The article explores the review conducted by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the Management Directive (MD) 715 of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the guidance of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) of the MD-715. This intends to eliminate barriers in achieving equal work opportunities. The use of available flexibilities to acquire, develop, motivate and retain talented and skilled individuals should be made by federal agencies such as the DHS.
