Report of the Committee on Administration of Training Programs.
Committee on Administration of Training Programs, Washington, DC.
This report to the Secretary of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare is based on the research findings of a private research contractor, Greenleigh Associates (See VT 005 948 and VT 005 949), site visits, and interviews with persons connected with about 30 federally supported job training programs. The 30 programs are of two types: those established by statutes such as the Manpower Development and Training Act, the Economic Opportunity Act, and the Vocational Education Acts, and special programs established by administrative action in order to serve special target groups or to provide better delivery systems and improved coordination. Although some duplication and inefficiency was found in the programs coperated during the period of this study (April 1967 to March 1968), the Committee observed that these failings rarely were severe enough to vitiate the usefulness of the programs. Twenty specific recommendations for improving the administration of the training programs at the federal, state, and local levels of government are presented and elucidated. The recommendations cover facets of policy, funding, organization, procedure, and staff training. Economic cost-benefit analyses of the various programs were not conducted. (ET)
