Part I (VT 005 948) of the report to the Committee on Administration of Training Programs contains summaries of the findings and recommendations based on the analysis of data presented in this volume. Answers to two basic questions were sought: (1) To what extent is there waste, duplication, and inefficiency in administering federally supported job training programs as many individual programs? and (2) How are the programs administered? Among the 31 programs reviewed are vocational education, institutional and on-the-job training under the Manpower Development and Training Act, apprenticeship and training, Job Corps, specialized training under Title II of the Economic Opportunity Act, work experience, work-study, Neighborhood Youth Corps, and others. The Programs are administered by about 20 Federal offices, under 12 different laws. Information was gathered from relevant legislation, documentary materials, study reports, testimony from participants and others, interviews with over 75 federal and regional administrators, and intensive study of the impact of program operations in Oakland and Fresno, California, and St. Louis and Springfield, Missouri, and other sources. Described and analyzed at all operational levels are program characteristics, aspects of administration including funding, the coordination structure, and dimensions of need. See also VT 006 507.
