Department of State: Additional Steps Needed to Address Continuing Staffing and Experience Gaps at Hardship Posts
Jess T. Ford (au)
The Dept. of State (State) has designated 2/3 of its 268 overseas posts as hardship posts. Staff working at such posts often encounter harsh conditions, incl. inadequate med. facilities and high crime. These posts are vital to U.S. foreign policy objectives and need a full complement of staff with the skills to carry out the department's priorities. State offers staff at these posts a hardship differential -- an adjustment to basic pay -- to compensate officers for the conditions they encounter and as a recruitment and retention incentive. This report assesses: (1) State's progress in addressing staffing gaps at hardship posts since 2006 and the effect of any remaining gaps; and (2) the extent to which State has used incentives to address staffing gaps at hardship posts.
