The federal civil service has witnessed the emergence during the last five years of a model of professionalism which stresses working openly for changes in agencies' goals, programs, and personnel policies, including resorting to protest to achieve these ends. The dynamics of the federal protest movement and some important institutional characteristics of federal agencies are examined in an attempt to assess the viability of this "within the system" change strategy and its effect on the federal service.
