          For at least the fourth year running, the first place prize for overhiring Asian/Pacific Islanders goes to the Broadcast Board of Governors (BBG, formerly USIA) which hired 198% more Asian/Pacific Islanders than BBG's racial quota for this group.

          Coming in dead last among Federal independent agencies in the quota competition for Asian/Pacific Islanders was the Court Services and Offender Services (CSOS) which hired -68.0% fewer Asian/Pacific Islanders than their racial quota.

          The Broadcast Board of Governors (BBG) overhired Asian-Pacific Islanders by 198%.  The percentage of Asian-Pacific overhiring for the remaining four "best" agencies were: SEC at 77%, NRC at 60%, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) at 43%, and the GSA at 13%.
