This report, intended as a reference for state and local government officials, provides a broad overview of incentive programs throughout the United States. Data is presented from various sources, including a survey of state and local government experiences conducted by mail in 1973, with telephone followups and some site visits. Job enlargement, variations in working hours, work standards, and performance targets (especially management by objectives) appear to be relatively widespread. Among the miscellaneous state government programs involving competition and contests, the safety program of Utah's Highway Department is described. Utah, California and Arizona are among the states which utilize work standards in the highway department. Despite some obstacles and problems, recent trends and developments appear to encourage and facilitate the introduction or employee incentives for state and local government employees.
