Assessment of Operations and Management of Opportunities Industrialization Centers. Report to the Congress.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
Patterned after a model developed in Philadelphia in 1964 without Federal funds, the Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) program emphasizes minority group leadership and seeks to attract the unemployed and underemployed who ordinarily would not have been attracted to public manpower programs. The program basic education, skill training, and job placement assistance. The five OIC's reviewed have made measurable progress in enrollment, training, supportive services, job development, job placement, and community acceptance. However, efficient resource utilization requires improvement in operations and management. Specific areas for improvement are recruiting, counseling, training, job placement, followup, and evaluation. (BH)
