DCI Provides Objectivity
Importantly, DCI Consulting Group is not a test vendor. In other words, DCI doesn’t sell any off- the- shelf tests. In recent years EEO agencies have been skeptical of vendors validating their own tools that they are necessarily motivated to sell. DCI does not have to worry about this potential conflict of interest. For this reason, DCI offers truly objective expertise in the evaluation and research of selection procedures. That is to say, DCI is obligated to conduct scientifically and professional sound research without initially leaning toward a particular conclusion. If a selection procedure is not supportable or vendor research does not meet the requirements of the Uniform Guidelines, DCI staff will share this information with clients. If a selection procedure is supportable and research meets the requirements of the Uniform Guidelines, DCI staff will highlight this result and explain why this is the case to clients and enforcement agencies.
