The amount and breadth of responsibility and impact of all jobs at a certain job level. For example, all Supervisor 2 positions have identical Generic Scope regardless of the specific field and family.

According to federal affirmative action regulations, an employer must set goals for hiring women and minorities in job groups where the employer has identified underutilization. The goal is a percentage that matches the rate of availability. For example, in a job group where women are underutilized and the availability rate for women in that job group is 25%, the goal would be for 25% of the hires for that year in that job group to be women. There is no requirement for the employer to meet the goals. Rather, the goals are targets that employers may use to measure the overall effectiveness of their affirmative action program.
